Audria "Nubia" Arnold, CEO of Nubia Creative Images, is using her creative eye and cutting edge artistry to promote breast cancer awareness.
NCI will present its first 100 Smiles Go Pink Breast Awareness Campaign for Breast Cancer on Oct. 5-6 at Nubia Creative Images, 4466 Elvis Presley Blvd, Ste 210. The free event will be from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. on both days.
The idea is for 100 or more participants to "come out, wear your favorite pink, black or white attire, donate your beautiful smile and support this worthy cause."
Local jewelry and clothing designers will be donating handcrafted accessories and attire for participants to wear during the photo session, inspired specifically for the event.
Sponsors include The Bubble Bistro, Tiara's Place, Helping Hands & Disabled Care, Raw Beauty, RGB Productions, JP Connections and Natural House of Wellness. The collaboration features various other supporters, clients and survivors. Participants will receive special gift bags, have their pictures professionally taken and will be showcased in a special breast cancer awareness edition of 100 Smiles Go Pink Magazine.
In Memphis and its surrounding, breast cancer is listed among the leading causes of death, particularly within the African-American community.
