“Save the Boobies Bar
Crawl” is a pretty catchy name.
Admittedly, it’s rather boobish, but when the objective is to save
women, raise awareness, and make easier the lives of those who’ve been
diagnosed cancer, we have to forgive the national “Save the Boobies” ad campaign.
On a local level, the
event is happening this Friday, September 18th, at the Chippewa Entertainment
district. 18 venues are collectively helping to raise money and awareness for
the Sisterhood Wellness Center, a local 501c3 organization that provides
retreats for breast cancer survivors.
Jay Manno, owner of
Soho, and Sean Coughlin of Buffalo Entertainment District Public Relations,
plan to raise money for cancer survivors, shed some positive light on the
Chippewa “party” district and bring some folks that normally do not come
downtown to the city for a good cause.
“I’m looking forward
to seeing a lot of people that may not necessarily frequent the entertainment
district,” Coughlin said. “Each bar or restaurant offers
something unique and special, and we are hoping to collectively do more events
like this for charity in the future–in other words, partying with a purpose.”
percent of the proceeds will go directly to the Sisterhood Wellness
Center. The event is only $10 and
the first 1000 people to complete the pub crawl will receive a “Save the
Boobies Bar Crawl” T-shirt. In
addition, there will also be other prizes raffled off at the participating
starts at 8PM this Friday, and ends approximately 3AM. Registration will take place at the
tent located between Soho and Subzero on West Chippewa Street. Each participant will be given a free
souvenir cup along with a bracelet that negates any cover charge at all the
bars taking part in this event. If
you do not want to partake in the arduous task of frequenting 18 bars in one
night, donate $10 to a great charity and pick out a few places you normally do
not get a chance visit.
