Thank you, New Haven!


We had a wonderful time, and raised lots of money for un- and under-insured patients at the Smilow Breast Center.

We’ll see you next year in October; start thinking about your bras.
Be sure to take a look at the bras we had this year as well as the non-bra items.

Other highlights from this year:

Bridgette Raes of BlogTalkRadio has interviewed a trio of people for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, among whom is our own Gaye Hyre!
Listen to the show (Gaye’s intervew starts at 36:26 in.)

The New York Times has an article about our 2012 honoree Nancy M. Cappello, Ph.D. and her work on behalf of women with dense breast tissue.

We are delighted to announce that renowned makeup artist, (and New Haven native) d. d. Nickel is joining us to work her magic on the runway models at our October 14th event. d. d.’s credits include high fashion, television, movies, broadway, and runways and red carpets from New York to Cannes.
