All proceeds from the night will go directly towards BCC’s goal of finding a cure for breast cancer by 2018.

Phillipa Green at BCC, says: “It’s really exciting to be taking Fashion For A Cure to Hamilton, the event has been a huge success in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch and we are anticipating Hamilton will be just as big.”
