In 2003 Ana Miura decided it was time for her to start making a difference in her community.
With nothing more than a desire to help, she set out to run a fundraiser that would help unite the musical community and the health community. With many family members and friends having battled breast cancer, Miura sought to create a connection between those female singer/songwriters and the women and men who have had their lives affected by breast cancer. Inviting four other female singer/songwriters to join her in the first BABES4BREASTS benefit concert, the night raised $500 for Breast Cancer Action Ottawa.
Growing over the years, B4B has featured over 50 different artists and toured through 21 different cities across Canada, raising over $140,000 for a variety of charities. The concert is an intimate, authentic and moving evening of music featuring singer/songwriters performing in a song circle; taking turns sharing songs and stories on stage. They are a beautiful testament to our strength in numbers and the connections we all share.
