FORESTVILLE - On Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. there will be a benefit hosted by The Modified Dolls at Bare Bones Tattoo Parlor, 11051 Bennett State Road.
The benefit is being held for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, not only to raise funds for research, but to raise awareness.
The Modified Dolls are a non-profit organization that seeks to demolish stereotypes and to open minds to what a modified woman can and should be; they are the different making a difference. The Modified Dolls have teamed up with Bare Bones Tattoo Parlor in Forestville to provide everyone with a valid ID and is of legal age, as many 2- to 2.5-inch, colored cancer ribbon tattoos as their heart desires for $20 each. All money raised will be donated directly to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
So far, the event has accrued nearly 100 Facebook RSVPs. That is not counting the many who will be there because they heard about it through word of mouth or saw a flyer posted locally.
Not only will there be tattoos and good friends and family, there will also be live acoustic music, a Modified Dolls merchandise table with information on how to become a Modified Doll, plus information on The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
