Amy Black, owner of Trademark Tattoo in Carytown and winner of Style Weekly's 2011 Reader's Poll Award for Best Tattoo Artist In Richmond, has founded the Pink Ink Fund. This fund helps provide financial assistance to breast cancer survivors hoping to restore self-esteem by having reconstructive tattooed nipple re-pigmentation. Now Pink Ink Fund is teaming up with Lamb Of God members Randy Blythe, Chris Adler, and Willie Adler, along with Mekong Vietnamese Restaurant, to help raise money for breast cancer survivors who need financial assistance in receiving reconstructive nipple tattooing.
There'll be all kinds of opportunities to donate to the Pink Ink Fund. Lamb Of God will lead a Rare Beer Auction with some truly amazing selections available (see the facebook event page for a complete listing). There'll also be some excellent Lamb Of God swag getting raffled off, plus music by the DJ Williams Projekt, as well as plenty of great beer and excellent Vietnamese food! It's all happening this Thursday at Mekong!
WHAT: Lamb Of God and Pink Ink Fund Raise Money For Breast Cancer Survivors
WHERE: Mekong Vietnamese Restaurant (6004 W. Broad St)
WHEN: Thursday, October 6, 7 PM
ADMISSION: This is neither a concert nor a venue, but purely a charity event. There is no admission charge, but donations are suggested and appreciated.
