Rock Your Rack 2016 Event Reminder

October 1 - October 16

Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 
1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men 
will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. 
There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, 
and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.

Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, 
an annual fundraising event combining the best of 
SL Music and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities
 and raise awareness for early detection 
which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.

This year's 4th annual event will support the 
National Breast Cancer Foundation 
providing mammograms, education, support and 
early detection services to anyone in need. 

The 2016 Event is all together on one sim and 
involves 63 designers including 9 Gold sponsors:  
AlaFolie, Athena Couture, Dulce Secrets, Emerald Couture, 
Empyrean Forge, LaVian & Co, phedora, Prism and Kultivate Magazine.  
Along with these designers,  14 DJ's, 11 Live Musicians, 
22 2D/3D artists, and 22 models will participate in the two week long event. 

Events during the fundraiser include 9 fashion shows, 
11 live musical concerts,  12 DJ dance parties, a 10L Hunt, 
Two Silent Auction areas, an Art Exhibit organized by Kultivate magazine, 
Art Auction and 7Seas Fishing Tournaments.  
Designers will be providing exclusive creations with 100% of the sales 
of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation 
along with a fine selection of the newest and 
most popular designs donating a percentage as well.

of the former agency into new and bigger endeavors 
at the newly created Models Giving Back.

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 
by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail.  
She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34.  
At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, 
and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options.  
After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment 
to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer 
and the importance of early detection.  
NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and 
to provide mammograms for those in need.  
This mission includes increasing awareness through education, 
providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, 
and providing nurturing support services.
