Healthy Boobies Campaign

HEALTHY BOOBIES CAMPAIGN! – Breast Care Awareness

As part of FUNNY GIRLS GO PINK! we were very happy to launch our “Healthy Boobies Campaign” where guests who attended the comedy show took pledges to give themselves regular self exams as well as encourage their friends and Moms to do so. Every small step brings us closer to early detection and awareness. We would like to send a HUGE thank you to all of our volunteers, the attendees and the performers- Mai Assaf, Ellen Harewood, Simone Heng and Mina Liccione! We successfully raised awareness, spirits and funds. Now let’s continue to keep those boobies healthy!
