Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. 1 in 8 women 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 kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The 2013 event is sponsored by Dallas Modeling Company, LivGlam, and K-Collection by LivGlam and will culminate on Saturday, September 28 with 12 hours of live music and fashion events including 5 fashion shows, 6 Live Musical Artists, 5 DJ’s, Dazzler’s Dancers, Silent Auctions, a venue wide hunt and exclusive creations from the 34 fashion designers participating in this year’s event.
