Modart/BBC Breast Mold Auction: Bid on a Breast Get a Real Piece of theAction
When the Boarding for Breast Cancer Foundation and Modart team of actionsports-oriented artists showcased its collection of customized breast moldsat openings in both New York City and San Francisco, the immediate attentionsimply reinforced a well-known fact: breasts are beautiful, and we valuethem in every shape, size, and form (and color, and design, and artisticinterpretation*).
Following such interest, it’s clear that the next step in directing theproject toward actual cancer awareness and research is the selling of thepieces, with donation of all proceeds to the Boarding For Breast Cancer(BBC) Foundation à‚Ë† a non-profit, youth-focused awareness, and fundraisingfoundation. The Foundation’s mission is to spread breast cancer awarenessamong today’s youth, and to raise funds for research and educationalprograms through events, sports, music, and art.
In this spirit, we are pleased to announce an open, online auction thatbegins April 1st and ends April 10th running daily until 9 p.m. PST. Thisauction, to take place at www.modart.com, will include the breast molds ofboth volunteers and professional athletes like Shannon Dunn, Tina Basich,Megan Pischke, Tara Dakides, Barrett Christy, and Tricia Byrnes.
