2nd Annual Be Bold for Breast Cancer Fundraiser was very successful. Set at Mirage Nightclub in Surrey, BC at least 32 men & woman showed up to have their breasts painted. This years partial funds raised went to our most insprational friend Janelle Hughes who unfortunately lost her fight last year. Samantha Rae was lead painter with Jenn Little as her assistant this year. Both are pictured centre bottom row (Sam on L, Jenn on R) . Thank you to Ashleigh Topliss for organizing such a great event and Q Parker for the fabulous photo session.

It was an amazing evening of very high brow elegance and amazing Body Art. This years competition was outstanding. The level of artistry from the contestants was just jaw dropping. Sammy didn't expect to win, as she had won the year before, but she was wonderfully surprised when she was selected once again as the winner. It was a very close competition and her artist friends Lucie Brouillard and Jen Little came in 2nd and 3rd place as well. Here are the detailed pics from the night.

Guess who was at the Exposed Fashion Show at the Whistler Ski and Snowboard Festival? Samantha Rae of course and Gene Simmons from Kiss! He was up there with his crew filming an episode of Family Jewels and decided to take in some of the festivals fun. Of course he couldn't help but notice the Helly Hansen Bodypainting Models. This is Sammy before she got her earred chewed on by Gene! her hair was in a ponytail until he got his hands on it.
