New Zealand’s only not-for-profit organisation dedicated to funding scientific research to find a breast cancer cure, BCC has teamed up with Augustine by Kelly Coe for a fashion show in Christchurch. Showcase For A Cure will be held at the prestigious Euromarque Showroom, 120 St Asaph St, Christchurch on Thursday 28 March, from 6pm.

Hosted by BCC Ambassador Petra Bagust, it will be a fabulous evening of fashion, featuring collections from Augustine, Charlo, Amaya and Alaska Tees. A silent auction will also be taking place on the night with a wide variety of items up for grabs. All proceeds from the night will go directly towards funding more scientific research into finding a cure for breast cancer.

BCC funded scientific researcher from Central Otago, Associate Professor Logan Walker will be attending the evening and providing an update on the progress BCC has achieved. “We all know at least one person who has been sadly affected by breast cancer, whether it be ourselves, immediate family, friends or colleagues,” BCC General Manager Phillipa Green says.

“Sadly, mortality for breast cancer in New Zealand is 20 percent higher than in Australia. We are slowing the death rate by 1 percent per year, but our ultimate goal is to find a cure. Events like the Augustine Fashion Show enable our supporters to join us and raise more money to help us reach our goal faster.”

Enjoy a Cardrona Cosmo Cocktail by Cardrona Distillery on arrival, The Ned Wines and canapés throughout the evening – plus you’ll receive an exciting goody bag, all included in the price of the ticket! Grab your ticket today ($75.00), as tickets are limited and will sell out quickly.
