Tickets are now available for the 7th Annual Acting Out – For the Health of It variety show and fundraiser. This year we’re holding the event at PianoFight, an intimate, community-driven venue in the heart of San Francisco, on Thursday, June 27. We hope you’ll join our feisty and fearless community as we “act out” to achieve health justice for everyone at risk of and living with breast cancer.

We’ve got a great program in store for you. You’ll laugh out loud at comedian Molly Sanchez’s outrageous comedy and improv, which has been featured at The Los Angeles Comedy Store, the Del Close Marathon, SF Sketchfest and “various hives of scum and villainy all over the world.” You’ll be moved by the personal stories members of the Bay Area Young Survivors will share through powerful readings. And you’ll find it hard to resist swaying to rhythms and melodies of the Caribbean coast of Colombia and Mexico by Calafia Armada.

And guiding the evening as our host will be musician, composer, poet, and prankster Guinevere Q.

Plus, there’s much more in store! Join us for the VIP reception and be treated to appetizers and additional entertainment by pianist Rich Leiter’s unique jazz and R&B spin on Gershwin, Jobim, Motown, and the Beatles.

We’re So Close!

By Karuna Jaggar, Executive Director

We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of our members this month, and now we’re just $3,200 from meeting our $25,000 spring fundraising goal. Today is the deadline to give. Chip in now and help us reach our goal!

We get over 70% of our funding from individuals, which means we never have to take money from corporations or organizations that contribute to or profit from breast cancer. Our commitment to providing balanced information, so everyone can make fully informed decisions about breast cancer, is at the core of our work. We don’t tell people what to do, but we help people across the country navigate the many decisions that come with a breast cancer diagnosis—whether we’re fielding questions about surgery choices, the role of watchful waiting for DCIS, managing side effects or the tradeoffs of hormone therapies.

Help get us make it to our goal so we can continue to working to address and end the breast cancer epidemic!

Think Before You Pink, a project of Breast Cancer Action, launched in 2002 in response to the growing concern about the overwhelming number of pink ribbon products and promotions on the market. The campaign calls for more transparency and accountability by companies that take part in breast cancer fundraising, and encourages consumers to ask critical questions about pink ribbon promotions.
