Boobyball 2016

Boobyball was launched in 2002 by a group of dedicated young women in support of their friend Sarah O’Regan who, at just 23 years old, was diagnosed with aggressive, advanced breast cancer.

Fast forward 16 years, and Boobyball is now one of the most coveted, high-profile fundraising events for young philanthropists in Toronto, Calgary, Ottawa and Winnipeg, and survivor Sarah is a thriving mother of three.

Rethink Breast Cancer™ invites guests to shake, strut and shimmy to the beat as it lands in Vancouver for its first-ever Boobyball fundraiser on Saturday, October 21.

Joining coast to coast events hosted in Toronto, (Oct. 13), Calgary (Oct. 14), Ottawa (Oct. 27) and Halifax (Oct. 28), party-goers will be transported back to the 80’s and 90’s and experience an evening filled with neon cocktails and scrumptious treats from Emelle’s Catering, Savoury City and Dipped Donut Co, as well as retro-nail style touch-ups by The Ten Spot, beats played by Z953 and more!

This year’s fundraiser, themed Let’s Get Physical, aims to promote and celebrate regular physical activity – whether shimmying in the most luscious lycra or having an aerobic dance-off to the sickest beat – which helps reduce a woman’s lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.

Your Boobyball ticket includes admission plus a complimentary bar, snacks, entertainment, gift bag and much more.
