Boobs Plus Liquor = A Fine Charitable Event [Drink Pink]

Many people are huge fans of the healthy, happy boob. In this country, comely cleavage sells everything from cars to liquor to sexy lingerie. Babies are often just crazy for boobs; sometimes even crying like, well, babies, until they latch onto one. Some grown men and women really, really enjoy seeing boobs. Chances are that you might know a mammary enthusiast. Heck, you might even be one yourself.
Yet sometimes boobs need some help staying healthy and happy, which is where you come in. Tonight is your chance to painlessly support the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas. You can do it by drinking. At a bar. Something that you just might be doing anyway.
This evening is the kickoff event for Opal Divine’s “Drink Pink” Campaign benefiting the Breast Cancer Resource Centers of Texas. This fundraising campaign will run throughout the summer at all Opal Divine’s locations.
During “Drink Pink,” Opal Divine’s will be making a donation to Austin’s BCRC for every Prickly Pear Margarita sold! The BCRC’s cut comes to 50 cents per drink, $1.00 per shaker. (We understand Opal Divine’s house-made Prickly Pear Rita mix includes: pasteurized fresh-squeezed lime juice, organic agave nectar and prickly pear purée. Yum!)
Tonight’s event also features the BCRC’s Art Bra calendar being given away with every single donation to the BCRC! “The fanciful art bras in the calendar were created by artists, celebrities, family and friends of breast cancer survivors,” reads the BCRC’s web site. Models from the calendar will even be at the event, signing the calendars, and providing info on the BCRC! That means that with any donation to the BCRC, you can go home with a calendar featuring genuine breasts! Breasts owned and operated by actual women! Whee!
Limited-edition “Drink Pink” T-Shirts will be available for $12, also benefiting the BCRC. These shirts can go over female breasts, or may be displayed over your tautly chiseled him-bo chest. Or let it cling to your bony rock-star frame, if that’s what you’ve got to work with.
The Breast Cancer Resource Center helps nearly 5,000 clients a year navigate through the process of a breast cancer diagnosis. They provide emotional and practical support to their clients, and give it from discovery through recovery. All services are free of charge. Susan Parker, Proprietor of Opal Divine’s, is among the women who have been helped by the BCRC.
