What Would Duckie Do? He’d go to the 80’s Prom Benefit for the Cure this Saturday!

In 1986, the fledgling Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation was only 4 years old, but already on it's way to become the nation's largest breast cancer awareness organization. Today, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has donated over 1 billion to breast cancer research and health services and currently mobilizes over 75,000 volunteers nationwide!

In 1986, a little movie written by John Hughes defined a generation of freaks, outcasts, punks, metalheads and the all-too-familiar 'richies' as predestined cliques unable to melt into the mold of a fine 80's cheese. Or could they overcome their differences in the name of love? Today,the film PRETTY IN PINK has donated over 100 trillion to Breast Cancer research and health...alright that's a bold-faced lie, but the film wears the right color and is about to do some serious good.

Wear pink this Saturday for the 80's Prom Benefit for Susan G. Komen for Cure! Presented by Grapevine Market and sponsored by PakMail and Kerby Lane, here's your chance to go back to prom (this time, with the right person), and all proceeds will go toward Breast Cancer awareness and research to find the cure! Gourmet hors d'oeuvres, a live DJ, dancing- and come dressed in your prom best for a chance to be crowned Prom King and Queen! And plenty of other surprises, door prizes and 80's indulgences! And stick around for a special Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow screening of the Brat-Classic PRETTY IN PINK!

It all goes down at Grapevine Market in Austin on Saturday, May 24th. It starts at 7PM and you can save $5 if you get your ticket online here!

Do good. Have fun.
