Cancer sucks. In today’s contentious world, it’s one of the few things that nearly everyone can agree on. The Pink Nail Society is hosting an 80s-themed prom benefit to raise money to advocate for prostate cancer prevention.
It takes place on Wednesday, Jan. 29. The party has two goals: to have a good time and to raise money. The entertainment from 6 to 11 p.m. includes a 50/50 raffle, photo-booth, and silent auction. The silent auction is open from 8 to 10 p.m.
Charisma Adore, Babylon, Jesse Smith, and many others are among the entertainers. There will be a VIP section in the Monkey Bar Room from 6 to 8 p.m. VIP ticket holders can enjoy appetizers and beverages. VIP tickets are $20, and VIP ticket holders get first dibs on silent auction items.
Broward Health will be present to share healthy facts on your health. The benefit takes place at Georgie’s Alibi and Monkey Bar in Wilton Manors.
Attendees are encouraged to wear an 80s-themed attire.
“80s prom attire is easy to find on Amazon, or you can raid the closet of a friend or family member,” Tendrich said. “I purchased an outfit at Vintage Diversity.”
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2020 there will be more than 191,000 new cases of prostate cancer. It’s second only to skin cancer for men.
When Stephen Tendrich’s father was struggling with the side effects of prostate cancer treatment, Tendrich decided to act. He formed the Pink Nail Society and decided to spread the word about prostate cancer, its risk factors, signs, and symptoms.
“We are taking a stand for the men of South Florida and across the United States,” Tendrich said. “We share this message so that men everywhere will have the chance to save their prostates.”
