Pink Cocktail Party, Fashion Show & ArtyBras Auction: Oct. 22, 2013, 5:30 p.m. Pink Cocktail Party & Fashion Show: $20 per ticket
ArtyBras celebrates, entertains and inspires with whimsical ArtyBras creations, with festive pink décor, pink dresses, pink drinks and pink hors d’oeuvres in abundance at the 4th Annual ArtyBras Fashion Show and Exhibition on Oct. 22, 2013, at the Lighthouse ArtCenter Museum. The money raised through the auction and sponsorship efforts surrounding this unique event will benefit the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center at the Jupiter Medical Center and the Lighthouse ArtCenter, a nonprofit Museum and School of Art. The ArtyBras this year is chaired by Jeff and Veronica Lichtenstein.
Sarah Nastri’s “Para-Teets”
“ArtyBras helps to celebrate those who have conquered cancer, as well as bringing attention to the fact that women (and men) need to have their annual checkups at facilities such as the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center,” Mr. Lichtenstein said.

“Artists have really stepped up to the challenge for this exhibition in past years,” said Katie Deits, Lighthouse ArtCenter executive director. “With humor and grace, these creations help fight a killer disease that has affected so many of our loved ones. Many of the artists who create ArtyBras have had breast cancer or are honoring friends or family who have had the disease.”
Rebecca Hadley’s “You Are a Wonder Woman”
A goal of $15,000 has been set for the entire exhibition with funds being raised by People’s Choice voting, the auction of the ArtyBras, underwriting and sponsorships, including a new category of sponsorship in which local small businesses can enter their ArtyBras and receive recognition while helping to raise money and spirits at the same time.
Artists, survivors or anyone else who wished to participate in the fun of raising money and awareness by creating an ArtyBras brought in their creations, which now on display in the West Gallery of the Museum.
Cheryl Blumin’s “Love & Money Support the Sisters”
ArtyBras committee members include Rose Meyerowich (Fashion Show Coordinator), Mary Imle, Rose Madera, Jupiter Medical Center’s Terri Wentz and Sherri Lewman, and the Lighthouse ArtCenter Curator Barbra Broidy and Director of Events Sheila McDonald-Bell.
A guest at last year’s event said, “The opportunity to unite and be silly over this disease was just what I needed that day. A few short hours earlier, I was in my ‘special recliner’ receiving chemo. Being able to laugh at the outrageous creations at ArtyBras, with so many survivors, was better than any medicine.”
ArtyBras is made possible with the generous support of the following sponsors: Jeff Lichtenstein and Illustrated Properties, Dreamstar Custom Homes, A1 Moving, Group One, Mike Riviecchio and other local businesses.
