Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Arts in the Village Gallery
October 1, 2015 10:00 am - 9:00 pm
Arts in the Village Gallery, 1601 Village Market Blvd, Suite 116, Leesburg, VA 20175
For the month of October, Arts in the Village Gallery is recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a special exhibit to raise awareness of this women’s health issue, to celebrate breast cancer survivors, and to remember and honor those whose lives have been cut short by this disease. The special exhibit will include artwork by a variety of the gallery’s artists, some of whom are breast cancer survivors themselves.
According to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, “Breast cancer is one of the leading health crises for women in the United States. One in 8 women 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.”
Arts in the Village Gallery will donate 20% of the proceeds from the sale of artwork included in our Breast Cancer Awareness exhibit to the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society supports the breast cancer cause by funding research, support groups and related endeavors.
