Bands Against Breast Cancer celebrates Boobsapalooza at Lynch's Irish Pub in Jacksonville Beach!

We enjoyed a fantastic 2016 Boobsapalooza Day at Lynch’s Irish Pub on October 1st!

“Holy moley! I’m exhausticatedhappilastic! What a fantastic day! Derrick Odom, you rocked it as emcee!!! Every single band was outstanding. I mean that. I don’t even understand how that happens. Just incredible. Sound peeps were on spot. Lynch’s staff were their usual awesomeness. Keith Doherty busted his ass today. Never seen him sweat that much except on the golf course! Volunteers pure bliss. The donations for silent auction and raffle were fantastic. And, the people who came out to support us were top notch. Saw friends I hadn’t seen in ages!

Heads up…. 2017 is our 10 year anniversary. Be VERY prepared. It’s going off!!!!! Were starting on it the next couple weeks. Wanna be a part??? Let us know!!!

Thank you all so much! LOVE YOU!”  – Hank Watson, Founder of Bands Against Breast Cancer.
