Expedition Inspiration Introduces BOOBAPALOOZA for Breast Cancer Cures
Join Expedition Inspiration for an evening of body paint, cocktails and music for breast cancer cures at Cornerstone Bar and Grill on Friday, April 12.
Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research invites you to BOOBAPALOOZA—an evening of body paint, cocktails and music at Cornerstone Bar and Grill—for breast cancer cures on Friday, April 12 at 9 p.m.
Those 21 and older may attend individually for $30 each, or teams of six can submit a model to the body paint catwalk contest at one of three sponsor levels. Cornerstone Bar and Grill, Zenergy, Sun Valley Mustard, P.A.C.T., Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch and Main Street Market, among others, will all sponsor the evening, and many will submit a model to the contest.
“Local models will strut their stuff on the neon runway clad in body paint and undergarments of their choice at Cornerstone Bar and Grill, all for the sake of raising money for breast cancer research,” said BOOBAPALOOZA co-chair Susan Tucker. “We want to do something different in this community, something that demands and deserves the same attention that breast cancer statistics demand and deserve: One in eight women and one in 1,000 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.”
Mark Greenwalt and Jamie Graden, professional body painters and air brushers will be on hand on April 12 to make sponsors’ designs into reality. Teams of six including a model may choose from the Gold ($1,000) Silver ($700) or Bronze ($400) sponsor levels in order to cover body-painting fees and enjoy the evening at varying levels. All sponsors and models are invited to the VIP party beginning at 8 p.m. at Cornerstone. Visit www.expeditioninspiration.org to register your team by April 1 at the latest.
Tara Bell will MC the evening, Parker Johnson, mash-up master of Montana, will DJ (complete with a laser show), and a panel of local celebrity judges will determine the winning teams. The grand prize is a fine dining experience for six complete with wine at the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch.
“Expedition Inspiration Fund for Breast Cancer Research has a long-standing tradition of funding the world’s best research; however, we are also all about inspiring healthy attitudes,” said Expedition Inspiration Marketing and Development Director Krista Detwiler. “This event
allows us to send a message of being aware and proud of your own body; of both women’s and men’s bodies. In short, it comes down to empowerment. As one sponsor put it, ‘I love boobs, and I hate cancer.’ It’s really that simple.”
Expedition Inspiration encourages those interested in forming a team to appoint their own model who is representative of their company or team; however, EI is happy to appoint a model if needed. Models may choose to wear as much or as little under the body paint as they choose. Undergarments may range from boy shorts and a bra to a g-string and pasties. Teams may also accessorize their design with hats, jewelry, etc.
Join us Wednesday, April 3, at 5:30 p.m. at Cornerstone as EI representatives Krista Detwiler Sonya Johnston, Leroy Kingland, and Steve Myers, guest bartend and pre-sell tickets and raffle tickets. Tickets are also available at www.expeditioninspiration.org for $30. Cornerstone Bar and Grill is located at 211 N. Main Street in Ketchum, Idaho.
BOOBAPALOOZA, as well as all of Expedition Inspiration’s fundraising events, contributes to the Annual Laura Evans Memorial Breast Cancer Symposium and the Young Investigator Awards. Both of these programs are directly tied to Expedition Inspiration’s mission to find new cures and prevention strategies in the fight against breast cancer so the people we love—our mothers, sisters, daughters and sons—won’t suffer from the disease.
