"A Thousand Words" Benefit at Atlas

Cancer sucks.  Until there is a cure, it will continue to suck.  Raising money to help fund cancer research and support for those living with cancer is one way we can help take society closer to a cure; and it’s even better when this kind of opportunity is right in our neighborhood.

Tuesday, April 19 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. join the Capital Breast Care Center for “A Thousand Words” at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.  The photo exhibit captures the emotions and hopes of 100 members of our community who have been affected by breast cancer.  Entry to the event is $25, is fully tax-deductible, and goes completely to the Center.  The evening includes live music by Mike Bowers, a dessert buffet provided by a number of local bakeries and restaurants (including H Street’s own Smith Commons), and a cash bar.  Advance purchase tickets are available on Eventbrite.

Washington DC tops the nation in breast cancer related deaths – 65% higher than the rest of the country.  The Capital Breast Cancer Center has provided screenings and mammograms to women regardless of their ability to pay since 2004.
