Call for Entries - 2nd Annual "Bra-La-La"

It's time for our second annual "Bra-La-La" bra decorating contest in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We had so much fun with this event last year! All proceeds will go to Hope Chest for Women, which offers limited financial assistance to women in Western NC who are undergoing breast or gynecological cancer treatment. This non-profit was created because women often must choose between receiving treatment and providing for their families. Hope Chest assists with financial burdens such as rent and utility bills, gas and transportation, medical bills and co-pays, lymphedema garments, food, and other unmet needs. Typically, clients are referred by hospitals and physicians, etc. We can't wait to see your "uplifting" ideas! There is a $20 entry fee (tax deductible if you write a check to Hope Chest), which goes directly to Hope Chest. Decorated Art Bra entries will be due on October 1. Winners will get prizes from Asheville Cotton Co.! Check here for a list of rules and an entry form.

Join us for a "Bra-La-La" bra decorating work session on Friday, September 20. Bring a clean or new bra (see contest rules for good hints) and whatever decorations you might want, and we'll provide a hot glue gun and a few trims we had from our stash. This is a drop-in work session, so just come any time that day. It will be helpful if you sign up here so we can plan some refreshments, but is not necessary. You don't have to attend Decorating Day to enter the contest.
