BOOBYBALL celebrates its “SWEET 16″in Toronto@REBEL on Fri., October 13, 2017

Olivia-Newton-John’s iconic leg warmers, headband  and of course her one of a kind video “Let’s Get Physical !”
Torontonians are invited to ‘Get Physical’ in support of
Rethink Breast Cancer.
Toronto’s biggest soiree invites guests to shake, strut and shimmy to the beat in support of Rethink Breast Cancer at the 16th annual Boobyball fundraiser on Friday, October 13 at 8 p.m. at REBEL (11 Polson St.). Party-goers will be transported back to the 80s and 90s and experience an evening filled with pink cocktails and scrumptious treats.

Channel your teen self and bring back your favourite trends from the ‘80s and ‘90s. Leotards to legwarmers. Shoulder pads to scrunchies. Jean jackets to jelly shoes. Molly Ringwald to Kelly Kapowski. It’s all good.
This year’s fundraiser themed Let’s Get Physical, aims to promote and celebrate regular physical activity – whether it’s shimmying in the most luscious lycra or having an aerobic dance-off to the sickest beat – which helps reduce a woman’s lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.
Tickets for Toronto’s Boobyball: Get Physical are available for purchase at http://www.Boobyball.com.
Want to do more to raise funds for Rethink Breast Cancer? Hop on a totally rad retro pink bike at TOPSHOP’s ‘Get Physical’ lounge at Boobyball. Every time you sweat it out, TOPSHOP will donate another $1 to Rethink.
Last year’s Boobyball events hosted 4,000 young philanthropists across Canada and since 2002, Boobyball has raised over $4.2 million dollars for Rethink Breast Cancer’s work for young women concerned about and affected by breast cancer. This year, Boobyball aims to raise $540,000 through its coast to coast events hosted in Toronto (Oct. 13), Calgary (Oct. 14), Vancouver (Oct. 21), Ottawa (Oct. 27) and Halifax (Oct. 28).

About Boobyball
Boobyball was launched in 2002 by a group of dedicated young women in support of their friend Sarah O’Regan who, at just 23 years old, was diagnosed with aggressive, advanced breast cancer. Fast forward 16 years, and Boobyball is now one of the most coveted and high profile fundraising events for young philanthropists in Toronto, Calgary, Ottawa and Winnipeg, and Sarah is a thriving mother of three. Since 2002, Boobyball has raised over $4.2 million dollars for Rethink Breast Cancer’s work for young women concerned about and affected by breast cancer.
