This Sunday, Easter Sunday, after most of you have spent the day with family and others have just enjoyed relaxing, do something good for
society and for yourself: Go to Breast Fest 2002 at The Engine Room.

Austin-based group Endochine will perform at Sunday's Breast Fest 2002 at The Engine Room. The event will benefit breat cancer research.

Everyone likes breasts. Most men (and some women) like to look at them, some women like to show them off and they are a nurturing
aspect of a baby's feeding process that was once (before formulas) vital to life.

The organizers of Breast Fest 2002 are aware of this fascination and the concern for the growing number of cases of breast cancer. 

Breast Fest 2002 is an event that will help a needy charity, be full of fun and music and, yes, full of luscious breasts.

The musical line-up is Ashbury Keys, College Station's Feeding 5000, Austin's Endochine and Westbury Squares and Houston's popular
The Pander Band.

Between the sets of these bands, which range from a bluesy rock to mainstream rock to any other good-time musical sound, all the
breast-crazed people in the crowd can set their gazes on the many breasts that will be gracing the stage.

Exotic dancers who love to bare all can get in free to the event with their official license. The Gentleman's Club waitresses can also get in for
free. For all others, the ticket price is a mere $6 and a portion of the proceeds go breast cancer awareness, screenings and treatments.

According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, an estimated 203,500 new invasive cases of breast cancer are expected among women in
the United States in 2002. An estimated 39,600 will die from breast cancer. In addition, 1,500 men are expected to be diagnosed with breast
cancer, 400 of whom are expected to die.

Breast cancer is the leading cancer among American women and second only to lung cancer in deaths. Among 40- to 59-year-old women in
America, it is the leading cause of death.

Almost everyone in the United States today has known someone with breast cancer. The statistics are rising and more research needs to be

Breast Fest 2002 promises to be an enjoyable night for all. If you aren't into seeing big boobs, then go and enjoy the music. If you aren't really
into the music, then go and enjoy the drinks.

If that isn't enough, then go because you know it is for a good cause and you want to do a good deed on this special Sunday night.

Of course, not all can enjoy this fun-filled night. Patrons must be 18 years or older to be admitted. Admission is $6, although strippers will get
in for free.

The show starts at 7 p.m. Go and enjoy the music, the fun, the cheap drinks or the satisfaction of being a charity donator ... or just enjoy the
sight of all the breasts bouncing around the venue.
