A GREAT EXCUSE TO ‘GO NAKED’

go-naked-1-2011-500x375-6651735The third annual Go Naked and Check Yourself event for cancer awareness and prevention returns to Red Bank on November 24, with a “fun and flirty charity event” at Red Restaurant & Lounge.

It’s an annual event that addresses a serious, life-and-death sort of topic: bringing awareness to detectable forms of cancer, and promoting simple self-examination procedures.

It’s also a “fun and flirty” night on the town in which attendees mingle, enjoy drink specials, bid on prizes and share close proximity with “lingerie and boxer clad models…no nudity of course.”

A partnership between two Red Bank retail businesses —  Chris Paseka’s cupcake emporium Sugarush, and Angela Courtney’s lingerie purveyor Sweetest Sin Boutique — with the Two River Times, the fundraiser known as Go Naked and Check Yourself comes to red restaurant & lounge for the first time on the evening of November 24, in the third edition of an event that’s raised more than $20,000 for local and national cancer charities, and which has sold out in each of the past two years.

Described as “a community-wide event for businesses and residents to join together and kick off the holiday season, raising money to help those affected in Monmouth and Ocean counties,” the fundraiser “strives to empower and encourage individuals by inviting everyone to ‘go naked’ and check themselves.”

According to press materials furnished in advance of the event, “awareness, education and resources enable individuals to detect cancers before they grow to an unmanageable state. This event

All ticket sales and raffle proceeds from the event, scheduled from 5 to 8 pm, will be dedicated to the area chapter of Young Survival Coalition, as well as to the  Cancer Support Community (The Diney Goldsmith Center) of the North Jersey Shore.

The night will include complimentary champagne, appetizers, and cupcakes, along with drink specials, a generous gift bag, fun prizes from local sponsors, and auctions to further raise funds. Experts, such as Young Survival Coalition president Lisa Frank and motivational speaker/survivor DonnaLyn Giegerich, will be on hand to share knowledge and answer questions regarding detectable cancers such as skin, breast and testicular.

Several Red Bank businesses have contributed to the event, including Kathryn Barnett School of Dance, Via 45, Brandi Grooms Photography , Sounds To Go, New Corner Pizza, Dish, Red Bank Family Eye Center, Ten Thousand Villages, Front Street Trattoria, The Cheese Cave, Red Bank RiverCenter, Teak and The Bistro.

Advance tickets are $40 in advance (purchase tix and obtain further infro from Sugarush or Sweetest Sin), or $50 at the door. A limited number of VIP tables will be sold for $500 (4 tickets, private table, food and drinks).

Remember: Nothing makes a Red Bank friend happier than to hear "I saw you on Red Bank Green!"
