BUST Breast Cancer

Please join us for the BUST Breast Cancer event on Thursday, October 18th at 7 p.m!

BR Walls Project, Privé and & Woman's Hospital are partnering to host a fashion show fundraiser on October 18th at Hartley/Vey Theatres at the Manship Theatre. All funds raised will benefit Woman's Hospital's breast cancer outreach and education programs, including the Mobile Mammography Coach, which reaches thousands of women in eighteen Louisiana parishes. 

Bras will be handmade by local artists and adorned with paint, jewelry, metal, photography, poetry, fabric, glass, mixed media or any medium that the artist chooses. The art-bras will be worn by a mix of Breast Cancer Survivors and models and then auctioned off that evening via a silent auction. TIckets are $35 and can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/BraFashionFundraiser 

A big thank you to our sponsors: Mockler Beverage Company, Mud and Water, and Hartley/Vey Theatres at the Manship!

Wall #2 Community Celebration!!

You are invited to our Wall #2 Community Celebration!!!

TUESDAY / OCTOBER 16 / 6 - 9 PM

  • Harrington's Cafe (@ 329 Florida Street) is an culinary institution in downtown BR adored for their crawfish etouffe, poboys, and signature salads. To celebrate the completion of the BR Walls Project on their building, Craig and Lacey Harrington will be hosting a family reunion dinner - and the whole BR WALLS Community is invited. Past and current employees from the past 12 years will be joining the Harrington family to enjoy a sampling of the menu as well as debuting Lacey's Healthy Lunch items now available daily. There will be ice cream served for the kids and lighting provided to enjoy the mural artwork by Wall #2 artist Joseph Konert.
  • Next door at the Mentorship Academy will be the book signing & release party by BR Walls board member, Dr. Brian Dixon. This will be a great opportunity to hear Brian speak about his book on social media, meet his family, and to learn more about the ground-breaking work he is doing with his downtown charter school. Beer & Wine will be served courtesy of the Camelot Club, and is FREE to the public. For the grand finale' the imagery for the upcoming Wall #3 will be unveiled by Launch Media outside on Florida St...you'll have to come to see it first!
