Boobyball lands in Vancouver, celebrating its inaugural bash on October 21

Party goers invited to ‘Get Physical’ in support of Rethink Breast Cancer

September 6, 2017, Vancouver, BC | Rethink Breast Cancer invites guests to shake, strut and shimmy to the beat as it lands in Vancouver for its first-ever Boobyball fundraiser on Saturday, October 21 at 8 p.m. at The Imperial (319 Main St.). Joining coast to coast events hosted in Toronto, (Oct. 13), Calgary (Oct. 14), Ottawa (Oct. 27), and Halifax (Oct. 28), party-goers will be transported back to the 80s and 90s and experience an evening filled with neon cocktails and scrumptious treats from Emelle’s Catering, Savoury City, and Dipped Donut Co, as well as retro-nail style touch-ups by The Ten Spot, memorable beats played by Z953, and much more!

Tickets for Vancouver’s inaugural Boobyball bash are available for purchase at

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.

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, Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa and Halifax.
