Beyond Pink is a local non-profit that provides funds for thermal imaging and clinical breast exams for women who would not otherwise be able to afford this potentially lifesaving testing. It is the only non-profit of it's kind. It also provides an educational component on risk factors for breast disease and preventive measures.
The event itself is held once a year in October, breast health awareness month. It is a fun filled evening with a designer bra fashion show providing a silent and live auction.
Because young women currently do not have a way to monitor their breast health and thermal imaging has the ability to see the disease process years before a mass is large enough to be seen by mammography, ultrasound or MRI, risk assessment thermal imaging is the missing link. Younger women tend to get more aggressive breast cancers (more active) and have a lower rate of survival due to the late stage of detection.
Thermography has been FDA approved since 1982 as an adjunct testing tool for breast cancer. Because the technology is currently not regulated it's important to go to a recognized center for accurate testing.
Thermography is recommended for women beginning at age 20.

We are excited to announce that Beyond Pink, a local non-profit and 501(c)3, is hosting their 6th annual Designer Bra Fashion Show. The event will be held on October 14th, 2016 at the Spokane Convention Center.
The night of the show, at 5:00 pm, the doors will open to a fabulous silent auction with hundreds of items, no host bar and plentiful hors d oeuvres. At 7:00pm the live show and auction will begin.
Our talented local artists and designers will once again show off their best! Their themed packages will be auctioned off one by one as the fun evening continues. The event will wrap up with an exclusive and fun VIP event. Hundreds will turn out to support Beyond Pink - and 100% of the net proceeds will go towards funding for women who cannot afford thermography.
To date, the charity has helped over 450 local women in the battle against breast disease, a number not lost on those behind this event's success. Our last event raised over $225,000, which will now go directly to help women in this community.
For most women who benefit from the charity, the knowledge that their risk is low can be a tremendous gift. But there are those who are not so fortunate. So far, about a dozen women have learned they are high-risk. For many of them, this discovery has led to cancer fighting therapies that now stand a much better chance of success thanks to early detection. The combination of a mammogram, a clinical breast exam, and an FDA approved thermogram offers women a 95% chance of detection of breast disease.
This event is well attended by both men and women alike, and we assure you it will be the 'The Most Fun You Will Have Saving a Life.' Bring your friends, spouse and coworkers! Tickets are $50 and can be purchased in advance at BeyondPink.net. Complimentary wine is included with your ticket price. There are still sponsorship opportunities available for every budget. Last year's show and auction was a great success, and we invite you to come be a part of it!
