Planning an uplifting experience

Bras for the Cause event Thursday

GREENVILLE — Dozens of the most unique bras anywhere will be on display in downtown Greenville this week, for an uplifting support of the battle against breast cancer.

The 2012 Bras for the Cause will take place Thursday evening, and the public will have a chance to vote on their favorites according to Janeen Cunningham with the Calico Cat, who along with Lana Dollgener and Lisa Hill are the chairs for this year’s event.

“The bras will be on display here, at the Texan Theater and at Landon’s Winery,” Cunningham said.

Proceeds from Bras for the Cause will benefit the Hunt Regional Healthcare Foundation, which provides supplies such as wigs and breast prostheses to local breast cancer patients in need.

Those wanting to submit bras for judging can do so today and Wednesday, between 11 a.m. and 8 p.m., at Landon’s, 2508 Lee Street. Details and guidelines on the contest are available at calicocatgreenville.com/bras.

The judging will take place starting at 6 p.m. Thursday.

“You can buy voting cards at any of the three locations,” Cunningham said.

The cards come in denominations of $10, $20, $50 and $100 and chances are the cups won’t be half-full.

“Last year there were $17,000 in votes cast,” Cunningham said.

Judging will take place between 9 and 9:30 p.m. Thursday. There will be winners in 15 groups, along with four “Breast Of Show” awards for the bras which raise the most money.

Sue Shanks with the Destination Imagination team at Greenville High School has provided the impartial judges, who will be grading the entries based on creativity and use of materials.

Cunningham said the Bras for the Cause sponsors have been unbralievable, cross her heart.

“Our sponsors have grown from 31 last year to 67 this year and they have donated more than $29,000 so far,” Cunningham said.
