Since Ottawa songtress Ana Miura founded Babes for Breasts (B4B) in 2003, the musical collective has raised more than $50,000 for breast cancer charities.
Miura enlisted fellow Ottawa singer/songwriter Amanda Rheaume to join the ranks of B4B in 2007, and the two musical mavens have since staged concerts all over Canada.
"We all have a responsibility to help others whether that is shovelling an elderly person's driveway or putting on a benefit concert," Miura states on B4B's website. "Babes for Breasts has turned into a community in and of itself filled with incredible people and the love and dedication that is unwavering."
Support B4B Saturday, Oct 20 at their sixth annual benefit concert. Miura and Rheaume will be joined by Suzie Vinnick, Ann Virend and Robyn Dell'Unto.
Visit B4B's official site for advance tickets, to purchase a compilation album or to donate.
