Bras for the cause

There are many events planned to celebrate breast cancer awareness month. Please send me your announcements to capcitybizbuzz@illinoistimes.com and I’ll feature each of them.

Here’s the first and it’s a fun one: Kim Dixon at The Wardrobe (830 South Grand Avenue West) has invited a group of local folks to add some bling and zing to otherwise ordinary bras … and compete to win the 2nd annual BEAUTIFUL BRAS event.

A couple dozen community minded folks will deliver their decorated bras to the store on Thursday – and then beginning Friday October 2nd you (and all your friends) are invited in to vote for your favorite. (If I can get some pictures of at least some of the entries I'll post them here starting Friday morning.) $1 per vote break your piggy bank. This is a good cause. All monies raised will go directly to the local American Cancer Society to be used in the area of breast cancer support services, helping those who are facing the breast cancer journey.

Cast your vote from Friday 10/2 through the end of the month. The Wardrobe is open Monday through Friday 10-6, Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-4. Phone is 528-5785 if you need it.

Don't forget to send me all the tidbits you hear about other breast cancer related events. We're all in this together.
