It’s Breakfast for Dinner! It’s Breakfast for Boobs!

15 Apr

Just a friendly reminder that Breakfast for Boobs is this Sunday!

Armed with pancake syrup and a smile, the ladies of LUPEC are back to battle breast cancer for the sixth annual Breakfast for Boobs. Since 2004, the ladies of LUPEC Denver have been serving up breakfast for dinner at their annual spring fundraising event.

The Denver chapter of Ladies United for the Preservation of Endangered Cocktails (LUPEC) announces its sixth annual Breakfast for Boobs fundraiser on Sunday, April 18th, 2010, from 5pm-8pm at Hot Cakes Diner (1400 E. 18th Avenue) in the medical district. Normally a breakfast and lunch operation, Hot Cakes Diner has opened its doors for one evening every year since 2004, exclusively for this event. Regular wait staff will lend their aprons to LUPEC members and supporters, who take a crack at waiting and bussing tables.

Sound like a recipe for disaster? Believe it or not, the ladies hold their own. Especially with five previous years of experience under their belts.

“The first year I did this, I looked at all the people filling the restaurant and thought, ‘Oh my god, what if I suck at this?’” says Casey Cross, LUPEC member. “But I think we’ve gotten really good at it over the years!”

And that’s B4B’s secret ingredient. With a volunteer staff except in the kitchen—it’s all professionals at the griddle—Hot Cakes can donate the night’s proceeds above costs. Funding goes to the Denver affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and other local organizations (to be named soon) dedicated to breast cancer patients, survivors, and research.

“We have entire families who look forward all year to sitting down to breakfast with us,” says Allison Gleichman, committee chair for the event. “We think B4B is the perfect way to keep breast cancer awareness and fundraising top of mind. Breast cancer doesn’t go away when Breast Cancer Awareness Month ends in the fall.”

Why It’s Important

According to the American Cancer Society In 2009, approximately 40,170 women were projected to die from breast cancer. Only lung cancer accounts for more cancer deaths in women. And the Center for Disease Control ranks Colorado among the states with the highest prevalence in breast cancer.

About LUPEC Denver

Besides ensuring the renewed enjoyment of classic cocktails at functions throughout the year, LUPEC Denver raises funding to support local and national organizations that look out for the health and welfare of women and children in the Denver metro area. Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, Safehouse Denver, and the Denver chapter of Susan G. Komen are all past recipients of LUPEC Denver fundraisers such as The LUPEC Denver Crush Party, Stand Up for Safehouse, and Breakfast for Boobs.
