Owner of Exile on Main Street boutique, Roxie Amoroso is hosting an event at Beauty Bar on October 27 with Save the Ta-Tas Foundation to raise funds for independent scientific breast cancer research as part of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In the past, the philanthropic Amoroso raised thousands of dollars for other charities such as Heaven Can Wait animal society and more.
“This is my first fundraiser with Beauty Bar and a [for] a cause that is truly close to my heart—literally—one of my own ta-tas is directly over my heart,” she says. “[And] I’ve always tried to find ways to link music and giving.”
The night is celebrated with an all-vinyl set by DJ Atom Bomb playing riot grrrl favorites from the ’90s and more, free glasses of rosé provided by Johnson Brothers of Nevada, a silent auction (all proceeds go to the Save the Ta-Tas Foundation), and shopping for a cure with a mobile vintage clothing boutique by Exile.
“After losing my own aunt to breast cancer as a teenager, I’ve seen first-hand the devastation that this cancer puts a family through, ” Amoroso says. “Anything I can do to raise awareness in our own little music community and bring us a step closer to finding a cure is a privilege and honor.”
Stop by the Save the Ta-Tas event from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m on Thursday, October 27.
