Posted: 30th Sep 2013
West Dallas restaurant Babb Bros BBQ & Blues will
host a Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraising event on October 12, with
proceeds benefitting the Center for Community
Health (CCH) at UNT
Health Science Center (UNTHSC).
The event, called “Blues
4 Breast Cancer,” begins at 3:30 p.m. and will feature music by the Tom Cat
Blues Band, Zac Harmon Blues Band, Andrew Jr. Boy Jones Band featuring Kerrie
Lepai, Texas Slim and the Babb Bros Blues Band. There is
no cover charge, and reservations are not required.
The CCH, part of UNTHSC’s Texas
Prevention Institute, is involved
in breast cancer prevention, research and educational programs targeting
high-risk women in Dallas County. Since its beginning in 2007 in South
Dallas, the program has partnered with local members of the Dallas Cancer
Disparities Community Coalition, reaching hundreds of women directly and
thousands indirectly. Funding for this program was made possible
by Grant #PP110190 from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas
Funds raised from the Babb
Bros blues event will assist with West Dallas outreach programs. The CCH is
currently in partnership with the West
Dallas Multipurpose Center, City of
Dallas Environmental and Health Services Department, providing
bilingual classes on healthy lifestyles and directing women to mammography
screenings and diagnostic follow-up.
Babb Bros BBQ & Blues is located at 330 Bedford Avenue in Dallas. For more information, visit www.babbbrothers.com.
