A portion of all proceeds (tickets and sponsorships) will be donated to Susan G. Komen Austin to help further their mission to educate and support breast cancer patients locally and fund research that will enrich the lives of many. The event producers, MONÉ Media, have stressed the importance of their commitment to the cause. “We encourage all members of the community to support the event while having fun, and to share their experiences with breast cancer,” explained Coral Talavera. “​P​HYSIQUE is about celebrating life, recognizing the battle cancer patients bravely face, while also remembering with love those who are no longer with us. Join us as we share the stories of hundreds of local survivors.”

Followers, sponsors, attendees and volunteers are encouraged to share their experiences through the event’s social media profiles (T​witter, ​F​acebook ​and I​nstagram)​ and to forge a meaningful discussion about the issue.
