Bowl for Boobies: Help Local Women With Breast Cancer

Tie up those bowling shoes and slam down a few pins at Universal City Walk during Busted Foundation's Bowling for Boobies. The nonprofit helps Los Angeles women battling breast cancer pay their medical bills.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and one way to support local women is Oct. 21 at Bowling for Boobies at Universal City Walk. 

Glendale City Councilmember Mayor Laura Friedman works with the Busted Foundation's Bowling for Boobies after the organization, along with Soroptimists of the Verdugos, helped her during her battle with breast cancer. 

"I was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer in 2006. I had insurance, but between my deducible and co-pay I still had over $8,000 in medical bills. At the time, I had just married and both my husband and I had recently started our own small businesses, so money was tight," Friedman told Patch. 

Friedman is now on the advisory board of the Busted Foundation to help other women going through breast cancer treatment.

Ashley Largey is a brain cancer survivor and works as the Master Stylist at Frenchy's Beauty Parlor in Burbank. The Hollywood resident joined the Busted Foundation's Bowling for Boobies and aims to raise 2,000 before the Oct. 21 event. 

"As a cancer survivor myself, I know just how awful the disease is, and having added financial strain makes matters so much worse," Largey told Patch.

Money raised by the Busted Foundation goes directly to the women who need it, she said.

"In an already stressful time in someone's life, to have to worry about things like paying for groceries or making sure the electricity stays on is exhausting. It's an awesome thing to be able to see immediate results from the money raised," Largey said. 

There will be food, drinks, bowling and raffle items to raise money for the gals, she said. Frenchy's Beauty Parlor will have a pinup booth and Smashbox cosmetics will also have a photo booth. 

Bowling for Boobies happens Oct. 21 from 5 to 10 p.m. at Jillian's Hi-Life Lanes, 1000 Universal Studios Blvd., Universal City Walk.

Tickets are $35 for VIP; $25 for general admission; and $15 for children under 18. Click here to purchase a ticket

“Republicans can do it,” said http://www.coachoutletmls.com Jennifer Duffy, a Senate political analyst at the nonpartisan Cook Political Report. “It’s just getting a http://www.hermesbeltsoutletns.net lot harder.” Rob Jesmer, the executive director of the National http://www.coachfactoryoutletion.com Republican Senatorial Committee, said Thursday that Republican candidates were within http://www.coachfactoryonlinemb.com reach of victory in 10 to 12 competitive races, with Mr. Romney’s improvement in the polls http://www.coachoutletonlineef.org lifting candidates in states that were out of play six weeks ago.But time is dwindling. The implications for the next http://www.coachoutletonlineeu.net two years cannot be overstated. If Mr. Obama wins a second term, his hand would be much strengthened http://www.coachfactorystorebg.org by a Democratic-led Senate, even a narrowly divided one, as opposed to unified Republican http://www.coachoutletonlinetpc.net majorities in the House and the Senate.At the moment, Democrats are given little chance of winning the http://www.coachoutlethcs.com net 25 seats they would need to take the House, though they could well gain House seats.If Mr. Romney wins the White House, even a one-seat Democratic http://www.coachoutletb1.com

The state railway, Deutsche Bahn, operates http://www.outletcoachstoday.com what it calls - using the English that http://www.coachoutletod.com infuriates language purists - a Call a Bike scheme. http://www.coachs-outletcar.com There is a bank of red bikes outside the station. On the bike, http://www.coachoutletdp.com there's a telephone number which you call, and http://www.coachoutletwo.com the voice at the other end gives you a code to http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com unlock the bike.When you've finished, you lock it http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net to something fixed and call the number with a code and somebody picks it up. http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org You will be charged eight cents a minute.But most of us have our own bikes. We http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net do not wear helmets. It is foolish, but we don't. I always mean to - but I http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com don't. I realise that the brain is man's second favourite organ - but I still http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com leave my helmet behind.There is an argument now that if cities insist on http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com helmets for bike-hire schemes, then people simply don't ride bikes. And if http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org people don't ride bikes, then they're less fit and that means that more of them http://www.coachoutletrf.com die of heart-attacks.On this argument, insisting on helmets raises the overall death.
