Uplifting show of support

GREENVILLE — The sidewalks along Lee Street in downtown Greenville were filled with bustling crowds Thursday night, while hundreds more people strode in and out of the Uptown Forum and Landon Winery, to view more than 175 creatively decorated bras on display during the fifth annual Bras for the Cause.

The bras were up for judging, at $1 per vote, with the proceeds benefiting Janice’s Closet, a special fitting room located at Hunt Regional Medical Center in Greenville for women undergoing treatment for cancer, and the Hunt Regional Mobile Mammography Unit, which was parked outside the Hunt County Courthouse during the evening.

The number of entries easily topped last year’s tally, when voting for more than 130 bras raised more than $66,500.

There were also more than 100 official sponsors for Bras for the Cause this year.

Seven bras were to receive awards selected by an independent panel of judges, while there were also five BRAgging Rights awards presented to the top 5 money-raisers.

Saturday’s Herald-Banner will include the final tally and the list of winners from this year’s judging.
