West Coast Leather will feature its clothing in a fashion show at Stepping Out - 27th Annual Gala for the To Celebrate Life Breast Cancer Foundation. It takes place on September 24, 2022. Black Tie optional event at Marin Center Exhibit Hall, San Rafael, California.
West Coast Leather has been outfitting the models in the fashion show who are all breast cancers survivors for three decades. The brand has been supporting the foundation for 20 years. Giving Back is Always in Fashion at West Coast Leather.
Gavin Newsom has been a keynote speaker in the past. Sammy Hagar, rock-and-roller and a local who lives in Marin, as well as prominent doctors, EMS, firefighters, and policemen have escorted the models down the runway as a tradition. These events have raised normally $400,000 per event to assist survivors around the North Bay which has a higher than average of breast cancer.
Stepping Out is the foundation's signature annual fundraiser held every September to support people facing breast cancer by funding direct and emergency services. The highlight of this spectacular evening and gala is an uplifting, inspirational fashion show featuring models thriving after breast cancer and our scene has the loudest crowd reaction every year.
Brand Founder and Fashion Director Skip Pas' life changed when his mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at an early age and when Skip was 12 years old. He saw the consequences of the surgeries back in the 1970s and unfortunately lost his mom to the disease at a young age. With other close family members also having battled and survived breast cancer, he has been inspired by the foundation and the men and women that are a part of it.
The support from family and friends has always motivated people to help in some way and when we were offered to dress the models when we were North Beach Leather in 2000 and he was the general manager, he made the call that Giving Back was Always in Fashion. His passion to have a great experience walking in the fashion show was one very happy moment each survivor would savor as well as all of the volunteers that make these events happen.
This year's event is Saturday, September 24th, 2022
