Save Your Skin Foundation's unBeach Party will raise funds for skin disease and skin cancers on Wednesday, May 18th at the Vancouver Aquarium. This first annual party for 300 guests takes place during Melanoma Awareness Month and will include themed cocktails and canapés, an exclusive silent auction, beach volleyball, entertainment and a surprise celebrity guest host - all to the beat of our unBeach playlist.

The 2016 unBeach Party's goal is to raise enough funds to roll out a critical awareness campaign on sun safety to schools throughout Canada and to support other important 2016 patient support initiatives. Funds raised at the 2016 unBeach Party will ensure better awareness, prevention and detection of skin disease and skin cancers throughout Canada.

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. It is also one of the most preventable. Over 80,000 cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in Canada each year, more than 5,000 of which are melanomas, the mostly deadly form of skin cancer.

Skin cancer is caused by overexposure of the skin to UV radiation. The most common sources of UV radiation on the skin are the sun and artificial tanning beds.
