22nd annual Lesbians and Friends Dance: A Party for Prevention at The Inn at Brookline

A fundraising event by the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition

In Massachusetts, breast cancer incidence rates are 12% higher than the national average, which estimates that 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. However, the most commonly cited risk factors - genetic inheritance and lifestyle factors - are present in only 20-30% of breast cancer cases. This leaves 70-80% of cases unexplained. Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is the only breast cancer non-profit working closely with a research, and sister organization Silent Spring Institute to investigate preventable, environmental causes of the disease. This work is funded through annual fundraising events like the upcoming Lesbians & Friends Dance: A Party for Prevention.

On Saturday, October 26, 2019, hundreds of individuals will come together for the 22nd annual Lesbians and Friends Dance: A Party for Prevention at The Inn at Brookline, 1200 Beacon Street in Brookline, MA. The event features the always crowd-pleasing DJ Shelly Cullen, complimentary hors d'oeuvres, a cash bar, and a silent auction with items donated from LGBTQ+-friendly businesses across New England.

To kick the event off, longtime supporter Liz Nania of Out to Dance, will lead a free one-hour dance workshop for all interested participants from 7:00 to 8:00 pm. Nania says, "I am thrilled to once again be part of this spectacularly fun dance event to raise funds for one of my favorite organizations, the Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition. MBCC is the only group I know of that does the real and hard work of promoting breast cancer prevention and supporting research that investigates the link between breast cancer and the environment."

Since 1992, MBCC has been honored to work with the LGBTQ+ community towards the goal of breast cancer prevention. If you would like more information about sponsoring the event, please contact

Members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies are invited to purchase tickets in advance for $45 ($20 student price) online at click for details or by calling 617-376-MBCC (6222). Tickets are also available at the door on the evening of the dance for $50 ($25 student price).
