Mark Shunock is proud to announce that the October edition of “Mondays Dark” will take place on Monday, October 13th, 2014 at 8:30 p.m. at Vinyl inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Following the success of last month’s “Gone Country” night, 100 percent of the ticket proceeds from the October show will benefit The Healing Curve – a nonprofit initiative to help women who have beaten breast cancer but are left with scars and loss of breast tissue. The on-stage showcase – themed and titled “Women Who Rock,” will feature Gretchen Bonaduce, Savannah Smith, Rockie Brown, Justin Mortelitti, Jaime Lynch and others to be announced, all in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“Last month’s ‘Gone Country’ night was a huge success and this month’s ‘Women Who Rock’ themed show shouldn’t be missed,” says Shunock, who plays Lonny in the hit “Rock of Ages” at the Venetian. “October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and to be able to partner with Dr. Gary Motykie and his organization is a thrill. There are a lot of fun surprises this month that you have to witness, but I can tell you that ‘Boobies Rock’ t-shirts will be available! I’m sure this month will sell out early.”
Every month Shunock gathers an eclectic cast of guests including stars from Hollywood, the Strip, musical acts, athletes and celebrity chefs for 90 minutes of chat, entertainment – and a lot of laughs. “Mondays Dark” partners with a different Las Vegas-based charity to raise money each month for that charity, between ticket sales and silent auction items. Previous charities to benefit from Mondays Dark include Opportunity Village and AFAN (AID FOR AID of NEVADA), Nevada SPCA and the St. Therese Center HIV Outreach, The Shine Family Foundation, and The Miracle League of LV.

About THE HEALING CURVE:
In 2008, Dr. Gary Motykie formed The Healing Curve, a non-profit initiative, to help women who have beaten breast cancer but are left with scars and loss of breast tissue as a result of the mastectomy that saved their lives. The inspiration for starting The Healing Curve came after the flood of requests Dr. Motykie received after filming episodes of E! Entertainment’s hit show Dr. 90210 where he reconstructed the bodies – and lives of breast cancer survivors. The Healing Curve provides funding and support for the surgical correction of physical deformities that have been acquired as a result of cancer, a traumatic accident, prior unsuccessful surgeries and/or congenital birth defects.
