Y-ME Illinois Hosts the First-Ever 'BIG Night Out' - Indulgence for a Cause
Date:10/1/2007

CHICAGO, Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Y-ME Illinois will host a first-of-its- kind celebration to honor breast cancer survivors, their families and friends.

The BIG Night Out - Indulgence for a Cause will take place on Friday, October 19th from 6:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. in the Great Hall of Chicago's Union Station. This event will allow participants to pamper themselves by partaking in indulgences such as onsite spa services, luxurious chocolates, scrumptious hors d'ouevres and martinis made for the occasion while supporting a non- profit organization that provides free services for women with breast cancer. The evening will begin with a jazz quartet featuring Tim Green Jazz and later Chicago's own Shemekia Copeland, daughter of late Texas blues guitar legend Johnny Clyde Copeland, headlines the live entertainment with her "volcanic delivery and straight-from-the-gut realism...a masterful blend of fiery blues" (Vibe magazine). The evening will also host a silent auction and a raffle for a 2007 Mini Cooper donated by Touch Salons (http://www.touchsalons.com). Y-ME Illinois volunteers will be at various locations around Chicago selling The BIG Night Out event tickets as well as raffle tickets for the Mini Cooper. Locations include: United Center October 2-4 from 5:30pm-8:00pm, Merchandise Mart October 10 from 10am-2pm and October 11 from 4pm-6pm, NBC studios October 14 from 6am-12pm and Sofitel October 17 from 10am-2pm.

Proceeds from this extraordinary event will enable Y-ME Illinois to continue its work in our communities by supporting women with breast cancer and educating others so that they may live strong and healthy lives. Every year, more than 130,000 Illinois women are diagnosed with breast cancer and this year's "BIG Night Out", will provide an opportunity to recognize survivors and to raise awareness of how devastating a diagnosis of breast cancer is for those women. This year, NBC5-TV news anchor, Natalie Martinez will serve as the event emcee. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich and Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley are supporting this event as Honorary Chairmen.

Individual tickets are available for $125, and can be purchased online at http://www.y-me.org/illinois.

Jude Andrews, Y-ME Illinois's new Executive Director said, "I am honored to be a part of such a great organization that helps educate women about breast cancer and provides support to make sure that no one faces this disease alone. This night is very special. It is a night for everyone to enjoy themselves and support a wonderful cause."

The mission of Y-ME Illinois is to ensure that through information, empowerment and peer support, no one faces breast cancer alone. All services to clients are provided at no charge. In addition, Y-ME Illinois provides open door support groups, teen and adult education programs, a resource library, organizes a grassroots advocacy network and has a wig & prosthesis salon available to those who have been touched by breast cancer.
