THE STORY:

Help me raise $$ for Cancer research in honor of my Mom, Joycelyn , who survived breast cancer 32 years ago. Now at 82 she again is faced with this disease once again. She recently underwent surgery and continues on Hormone Therapy to hopefully kick it for good. She's a feisty gal and has always inspired me to be strong in life and take charge of my destiny. So proud of her strength as she faces Cancer head on! 

 JOIN THE CAUSE- BLING A BRA!

 

FestiGals' Bodacious Bras for a Cause fundraiser has generated more than $95,000 to support women with cancer through the auction of more than 100 bra creations.

 

Now, it’s your turn to step up and help your mother, sister and “sisters from another mother”.

Anyone can decorate a bra. Whether you’re a student, professional, budding artist, celebrity or a fundraising fanatic, now you can contribute to our meaningful cause.

 

HOW DO I BECOME A BRA ARTIST?

Step 1- Select register as a Bra Artist pay the $25 entry fee no later than 1:00pm CST on June 27, 2016. You will receive a confirmation and a link to your personalize fundraising page.

Step 2- Bedazzle, decorate, or transform a bra into a work of art- even a purse or hat! Post pictures of it with your story on to your personal fundraising page.

Step 3- Share with your story with friends and family and ask for them to “support” your bodacious bra creation via your personal fundraising page.

 

WHAT IS MY CHALLENGE?

Rally your troops to donate and make your charitable effort a success. Not only will you be raising significant funds for the Cancer Association of Greater New Orleans (CAGNO) and Breastoration, but each dollar raised counts as a vote toward winning the challenge! The deadline for online fundraising is midnight, July 11.

 

WHAT'S AT STAKE?

All entries will be winners, of course, because the funds you raise will make a difference in the lives of cancer-stricken women in our community. The top money raiser will win the “Golden Brassiere” Award.

The top three (3) revenue-producing bras will be featured in a live auction and the designated artist for each will be invited to attend the Bodacious Bras for a Cause Brunch as our guest.

I have personally known two awesome ladies who have gone through breast cancer; one is now officially a survivor who was 37 years old; and the other, a colleague at work, who is fighting the battle now. 1 year ago
