Event Description:

When fighting breast cancer, there's rarely much to smile about - until now.

"A Seriously Uplifting Experience," Bra-ha-ha is a fundraising event that brings together people of all walks of life - everyone from men, women and children to seniors and major international fashion designers - to decorate bras in some of the most creative, hilarious and eye-catching ways imaginable. Each bra tells a story of hope, perseverance and support. The bras are assembled in an art exhibit to celebrate the stories, the survivors and the spirit of those working to promote breast health.

Get your glue gun out, get creative and have some fun for a great cause! Registration closes on Friday, October 4th .
