Free the Tatas Disco Ball - Hadassah New Orleans Event!
Benefiting Breast Cancer Research, Treatment, Education & Other Genetic Research.
New Orleans, LA, August 8, 2017: On September 9, 2017, join us for the New Orleans Chapter of Hadassah’s “Free the Tatas” Disco Ball at The Cannery (3803 Toulouse St.). This year, we proudly honor sisters Cathy Bart and Judy Lieberman, two women who were the forefront of preventative treatments against breast cancer over fifteen years ago. Before the BRCA positive gene was widely known and aggressive treatments were accepted, both women decided to take a progressive approach against breast cancer. Thanks to women like Cathy and Judy, preventative treatments are more widely accepted and understood.
The “Free the Tatas” Disco Ball is going to be a special night filled with music, food, and one-of-a-kind art. The evening will begin with the big reveal of our 18 specialty canvases. These canvases are photographs of the actual body painted torso of 18 women in our Greater New Orleans area who have been touched by breast cancer. Local New Orleans artists gathered at the Northshore Jewish Congregation—who generously donated their space, and painted each one of the women with a design that the developed together. Please visit our event website www.freethetatas.org to learn about all the local artists who volunteered their time to create these amazing paintings.
