Breastoration Fund

  Saturday, Sept. 10, the House of Blues will raise funds for breast cancer survivors when the Louisiana Breast Cancer Task Force holds its annual "Pink Ribbon Fling" gala toto benefit The Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans' (CAGNO) Breastoration Fund. The fund was created by cancer survivors to help women who are considering breast reconstruction following a mastectomy and to provide educational resources to those at risk for, or diagnosed with, breast cancer. The gala begins with a patron party from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., and will feature Rockin' Dopsie and the Zydeco Twisters. Additional activities include a reception buffet, open bar, silent auction and raffles. Tickets for the patron party are $125, and tickets for the main event are $75. They may be purchased online at www.cagno.org or by calling 293-2618. — Lora Ghawaly
