ROCK YOUR RACK 2016
October 1 - October 16, 2016
Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women. 1 in 8 women, and an every increasing percentage of men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. There is currently no known cure for breast cancer, and its early diagnosis is critical to survival.
Models Giving Back is pleased to present Rock Your Rack, an annual fundraising event combining the best of SL Music, Art and Fashion to support the work of breast cancer charities and raise awareness for early detection which is critical to a positive outcome for this devastating disease.
This year's event will support the National Breast Cancer Foundation which provides free mammograms, education, support and early detection services to anyone in need.
The 2016 event involved 63 designers including Gold Sponsors: AlaFolie, Athena Couture, Dulce Secrets, Emerald Couture, Empyrean Forge, LaVian & Co, Phedora, Prism and Kultivate Magazine. In addition, this year's event will feature 2D and 3D artists for the first time with an Art show sponsored by Kultivate Magazine. Add to that the 4 Tribute concerts, 12 DJ Dance Parties, 7 Live Music Artist Shows, 9 Fashion Shows, the 10L Hunt, Silent Auctions, Art Auction and you have one must-visit event.
Designers will be providing exclusive creations with 100% of the sales of those items going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation along with a fine selection of the newest and most popular designs donating a percentage as well.

About the National Breast Cancer Foundation
The National Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 1991 by breast cancer survivor, Janelle Hail. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 at the age of 34. At the time of her diagnosis, there was little information about the disease, and she was forced to make a decision about her health with few options. After her treatment, Janelle made a commitment to help women around the world by educating them about breast cancer and the importance of early detection. NBCF’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. This mission includes increasing awareness through education, providing diagnostic breast care services for those in need, and providing nurturing support services.

Model, blogger, and stylist, I'm a complete fashionista in both my real life and virtual one. My SL interests are eclectic and include modeling, fashion, blogging, creating, socializing and role-playing. This blog represents my style and gives me an outlet for my creativity. Please feel free to leave comments and enjoy your time here!
I gladly accept review copies from designers but I reserve the right to blog only what I feel is well made and up to my personal standards. In this way I present truly good designs in a positive light to my readers and gain their trust. They know I would not blog something I would not wear myself or have within my inventory.
If you want me to review an item, send me a folder or box and include all pertinent information regarding the design and your store.
Thank for you interest and feel free to IM me in world or email me if you have any other questions. See the Contact page under the More Category for details.
