Fighting breast cancer: West Seattle walk; Hope & Healing fashion

The fight to eradicate breast cancer isn’t won yet – but not for lack of fighting – and your help is needed in a big way. Two things to tell you about tonight:

WEST SEATTLE WALK: Evergreen High School student Anastasia is organizing a Breast Cancer Walk-A-Thon in West Seattle as her senior project. She says, “I hope to bring awareness to the community and help to fight this battle. I’m honoring my French teacher who passed away and my mom who is still fighting. Come join in the fight!” It starts at 10 am Sunday, April 18, at Keller Williams in The Junction and will end on Harbor SW near Salty’s. $20 to register, which gets you a T-shirt and refreshments. Sign up by e-mailing or e-mail the registration form, with fee – the address is on the form here.

FASHION SHOW: Northwest Hope and Healing, led by West Seattle’s Shari Sewell, is getting ready for Style ’10, this year’s edition of the fashion show that raises money for NWHH’s work to help newly diagnosed breast-cancer patients. The event is April 29 at Showbox SODO, but many West Seattleites are involved, including boutiques Carmilia’s, Coastal and Sweetie. You can buy your tickets here.

ADDED 8:32 PM: Another event that’s coming up this weekend and is also a benefit for breast cancer – Dog Makeovers and Bake Sale for the Cure this Sunday at Muttley Crew Cuts, 9 am-4 pm. Here’s the Facebook event invite.
