Can you believe that fabulous bra is made of duct tape? It costs a dollar to vote (or you could be even more generous) but it is all for a very good cause. You can vote online at Asheville Artful Bra Challenge or go to Kitsch Fabrics if you are in the Asheville, NC area. Go here to see all the bras and vote. Of course I would love you to scroll down to number 14 by Ingrid Hansen. Ingrid works for Mission Foundation and helps raise money for Ladies Night Out which has one night a month for women to get free mammograms. The Artful Bra Challenge will be donating the proceeds to them so please be generous! As we always say in my family, VOTE EARLY AND VOTE OFTEN!
From The Mountain Express:
What: Asheville Artful Bra Challenge, to benefit Ladies Night Out breast cancer screenings for low-income women.
When: Votes for favorite bras will be accepted online through Tuesday, July 30. A fundraiser is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 7, from 6-9 p.m.
Where: Voting is available online at http://ashevilleartfulbra.com or at Kitsch Fabrics, 742 Haywood Road. Each vote costs $1. The fundraising event will be held at Altamont Brewing Company, 1042 Haywood Road, in August.
Why: There’s a new army in the war against cancer. Each soldier has two cups, two straps and everything from fringe to doll heads hanging from the bottom. These “artful bras” do more than just support: They also protect women from breast cancer.
Kitsch Fabrics and Sisters-in-Stitches will once again join forces to raise funds for Mission Hospital, Asheville Breast Center and Buncombe County Department of Health’s Ladies Night Out program. The agencies work together to provide free mammograms and cancer screenings to uninsured and underinsured women in Buncombe County.
