"Bash for Boobies" raises money for breast cancer awareness

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- It's a celebration that started as a neighborhood birthday party, 8 years ago, but now it's a community wide event.

Eight years ago, neighbors Mark and Louie figured out they both had birthdays in July. It was the reason for the first get together. The parties grew year after year with different themes every year.

However, this year the guys wanted to do something different after Mark's mother and Louie's sister were diagnosed with breast cancer.

"Since we have a personal connection with breast cancer; we thought we could do something to help find a cure and spread awareness." said Louie.

They created "Bash for Boobies", a 3 day party that would raise money for The Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center and The Hope Chest.

"The KCBC helps detect breast cancer before it's too late while The Hope Chest helps uninsured women pay for surgical reconstruction." Louie said.

They are raising money through different events that you're invited to:
