Save Second Base.

Whatever your rallying cry, October is the time to shout it. It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in true Taos style, the community has a full schedule of events and opportunities to raise funds and awareness, while having the most fun possible. The campaign, called Paint the Town Pink, is being presented by Holy Cross Hospital, to raise funds for their Cancer Support Services program. This program exists to provide non-medical support to cancer survivors (this term applies to anyone in treatment or recovery), in the form of information and resources. This program is entirely funded by these kinds of fundraising efforts, so community participation is essential to sustain it.

Starting on October 12th and continuing throughout the month, there will be a series of classes, ranging from yoga to belly dancing, meditation to Zumba. Depending on the event, either a portion of the class fee will be donated or possibly the instructor will be donating his/her time. So get out, get fit and have some fun with it!

If you’re looking for something with a little wine, some good food, live music and the opportunity to get some cool stuff, then be sure to attend the Paint The Town Pink Loft Party and Silent Auction on October 17th. The event is being held at The Howell Creative, 119B Kit Carson Road, 4-7pm. Just some of the items being donated include original artwork by Steve Gootgeld and David Hinske, cooking classes, a personal training session with Amy Starr at Taos Spa, a massage, private yoga session and more! Get your advance tickets (only $8!) at If you’re interested in getting more up-to-date info, since new auction donations are coming in all the time, then be sure to join their Facebook event here Don’t forget to invite your friends!

And to top it off, a special presentation by Taos Onstage will be happening at the end of the month. Mark your calendars for CUPS by Joni Sheram, a humorous one-woman play about The Bra and its significance for the character of Nora. The show opens on October 23rd at the old Taos County Courthouse mural room and will close on November 2nd. Included in this event is a bra fashion show and an exhibition of metal lingerie by Liam Denevan. Make a reservation by emailing [email protected] or get tickets online here.
