Hope for the Holidays

The annual Function as Fashion fundraiser will shine brightly tonight, with cancer survivors illuminating the catwalk in yoga-inspired athletic wear from lululemon athletica. The Boulder boutique is featuring the cancer fighters and their triumphant stories to launch the official countdown to LUNAFEST 2008 (a national short-film festival coming in January) and raffle off a few tickets to raise money for cancer research.

"We want to showcase these people and their lives," says Elaine Waterman, the shop's regional community manager. "Each one of these inspirational individuals is still active and does not let cancer change what they love to do."

The event kicks off at 6 p.m. at lululemon athletica, 1750 29th Street in Boulder; the show will be followed by a private shopping party, with proceeds benefiting the Breast Cancer Fund and the new Boulder HealthLinks clinic. LUNAFEST and raffle tickets will be available at the door. Call 720-565-0175 for more information or visit www.lululemon.com/boulder.
