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, Art 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 event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.
The 2016 event involved 63 designers including Gold Sponsors: AlaFolie, Athena Couture, Dulce Secrets, Emerald Couture, Empyrean Forge, LaVian & Co, Phedora, Prism and Kultivate Magazine. In addition, this year's event will feature 2D and 3D artists for the first time with an Art show sponsored by Kultivate Magazine. Add to that the 4 Tribute concerts, 12 DJ Dance Parties, 7 Live Music Artist Shows, 9 Fashion Shows, the 10L Hunt, Silent Auctions, Art Auction and you have one must-visit event.
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.
