This event is to be a community wide fundraiser in the Morgantown, WV area, whereby they are inviting multiple local restaurants to participate in the "Dine Out for BRA Day' benefit. On the evening of October 19, 2016 we are asking that participating restaurants donate a percentage of total receipts to this benefit. We will invite friends, family, coworkers and members of the community to dine at participating restaurants to help raise awareness of breast reconstruction options available to those afflicted with breast cancer. The Dine Out for BRA Day will be publicized through media opportunities, e-marketing, print and radio advertisements, social medial and our websites.
A free educational event that will include the following:
~Meet and greet with both surgeons
~Learn about breast reconstruction options from Board Certified Plastic Surgeons through presentations
~Get answers to reconstruction questions through a Q & A discussion
~Hear patient stories and connect with women who have been through reconstruction
~Develop realistic expectations of what reconstruction can achieve through seeing real life results in the Show & Tell Lounge
~Meet a MENTOR representative who will have sample breast tissue expanders and implants
They are hosting a lunch and learn with a presentation by Dr. Moosavi giving a brief lecture on breast reconstruction and survivors will be sharing their stories. That evening, there will be a fun bowling event where the money registered for the teams will go to the Breast Reconstruction Awareness Fund.
Sharing awareness during the month of October to prompt conversations with their patients.
