Hi everyone!

I have been busy at work supporting a cause close to my heart which is Boobalicious ? an annual breast cancer awareness and prevention fundraiser. I am giving away a pair of VIP tickets (value $200) to the first person who answers correctly, who were the three companies that participated in October?s Entrepreneur Storytelling contest and what did they win? Visit www.boobalicious.ca for more information. Support the cause while having fun, email me for tickets.

VEF Momentum who has been putting on some fantastic events for entrepreneurs is at it again, this time it?s about Bootstrapping to Success. The event features Jason Bailey founder and CEO of KITN Media and SuperRewards. Using his own finances, Jason co-founded SuperRewards with two fellow entrepreneurs with the premise of monetizing virtual currencies. It was acquired by AdKnowledge shortly thereafter for amount rumored in the tens of millions. I have two pair of tickets to be given away to the first two people who can correctly what did October?s Entrepreneur Storytelling contest top winner win and what is the company name?

More detailed information about each event below.

=============================================================

-== WHAT IS BOOBALICIOUS ==-
This ain't no regular hum, drum club night. Far from it!!! Boobalicious - the Pink Playground - an annual breast cancer awareness and prevention fundraiser - is a full on spectacle of a SHOW, a CARNIVAL FOR YOUR SENSES ? if you like - offering MIND BLOWING PERFORMANCES taking you back to your childhood days at the carnival. But rest assured ? this ain?t your mom and dad?s carnival!

Boobalicious is an annual breast cancer awareness and prevention fundraiser event benefiting the Keep A Breast Foundation (http://www.keep-a-breast.org) and The Weekend to End Breast Cancer (www.endcancer.ca).

Did you know that in 2008, an estimated 22,400 women and 170 men in Canada were diagnosed with breast cancer? About 5,400 of these individuals lost their battle. This serious disease not only afflicts those who have it, but those around them including family, friends, and loved ones. It?s time for us to make a difference, support these courageous individuals, and help us to move closer to a future without breast cancer!
