So, this week my girlfriends and I are planning for a party we will be hosting together at my house. Its a fun FUNdraiser for an annual event that takes place here at a local downtown hotel called Bras On Broadway. They literally drape the building with a bra-garland in order to draw attention to the fight against breast cancer. And DRAW ATTENTION they do!
Last year they had over 3,000 bras in the garland, and raised over $62,000! The focus of the event is on the artistic reinvention of the bra. Inside the building, at the actual event, local artists donate wearable and non wearable art bras which are modeled and then auctioned off. All proceeds are donated to the American Cancer Society to support local women in our area who are fighting breast cancer.
Teams form in the weeks before the actual event to gather donations and old broken down bras for the garland. The party we're hosting is a PRE-fundraiser we're calling Bra-vada. We'll collect donations, and bras, then over coffee, or wine, or martinis and a few hors d'oeuvres, we'll decorate, bedazzle, adorn, embellish... in other words - prettify our cast off brassieres to add to the bra garland and wave in the wind with the others! Be sure to check in next week - I'm sure I'll have at least one pink bedazzled bra to share!
Pretty cool huh? What do you think?
