I'm Still Beautiful: Benefit Concert and Fashion Show for Young Adult Cancer Survivors
Where: Mercy Lounge
When: Thu., March 3, 7 p.m.
$10

All right, this really shouldn’t take much convincing. Do you categorically hate cancer? Do you unequivocally love local rock’s most enduring and beloved band, The Features? Do you like sights soft on the eyes? Thought so. That means there is simply no convincing argument you could muster for not trekking out to Mercy Lounge and throwing your support behind Giving Back Is the New Black’s I’m Still Beautiful shindig.

For the third year since 2008, GBItNW presents this fashion/rock show to benefit the I’m Too Young for This! Cancer Foundation — an organization that provides advocacy and support for young adults struggling with and surviving bouts with the disease. Swathed in the styles of designers such as Charles Lord and Olia Zavozina, models — each a young cancer survivor — will sashay down the runway in a chic middle-finger salute to the pervasive disease that newly affects 70,000 Americans age 40 and under annually.

Holley Maher, Runs With Bulls, Kopecky Family Band and The Features — a band who, like the models on the catwalk, never say die — will bring the rock.
