Go on, tell your spouse that you’d like to spend a night looking at lingerie. You’re sure to get a reaction. It’s just the beginning of the unexpected fun involved when you help support breast cancer awareness efforts by attending the Bras for a Cause event.
The fashion show, taking place March 23, at the Metropolitan (the old Paradox Theater) blends the delicate male fashion sensitivities with the artistic expressions of local businesses and organizations. Dozens of local male models will display the decorated bras, which will then be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
Each bra featured was first a part of the YWCA Bling a Bra contest, a traveling display of the judged entries that appeared at different venues and events in the past months to increase breast cancer awareness.
Don’t miss your opportunity to own a unique piece of breast cancer awareness art, all while helping support the YWCA’s ENCOREplus program. All proceeds from Bras for a Cause go to this important effort to educate local women about breast cancer and coordinate financial assistance and other resources for mammograms.
The Bras for a Cause event takes place from 7:00-9:00 p.m. In addition to bidding on the wide selection of bras, you can also participate in a raffle for items donated by local businesses and individuals. Raffle tickets are $1.00 per ticket or six for $5.00.
Entry for the Bras for a Cause event is $5.00 (which includes one ticket for the raffle), with a cash bar available. Bring your spouse, bring your friends, bring anybody who loves a fun night out and a good laugh. We will be giving breast cancer survivors two tickets to the raffle along with a small gift.
