A wine-and-cheese reception, in conjunction with a benefit exhibit by Luba Sterlikova, will be held at the International Club of DC on October 22. The Russian artist’s show, “Feminine Essence,” focuses on sensuality and female beauty. The exhibit is dedicated to breast-cancer survivors, including Sterlikova’s younger sister. A silent auction will be held at the event, and proceeds will be donated to a DC team walking in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in New York the weekend of October 10. Advance tickets are available for $10 for ICDC members and $15 for nonmembers. For more information, click here.
Harley Davidson of Baltimore will host the second annual Heels on Wheels Women Only Ride on October 24. You can register on the Web site or at 9 AM the day of the ride. For any breast-cancer survivors who wish to participate but don’t have a motorcycle, the store set up Bosom Buddies—so that non-drivers can ride with someone else. The ride starts at 11 from the store (8845 Pulaski Hwy.). There’s a $10 participation fee. Proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen foundation and the Amazon Heart Ride for Breast Cancer Survivors.
