COLUMBIA - The Ellis Fischel Cancer Center is sponsoring their annual "Artful Bra" contest, formerly known as Decorate-A-Bra. Participants decorate bras to raise money for breast cancer patients.
Registration forms can be found online at http://www.muhealth.org/ArtfulBra. Participants must submit the form by Friday, Sept. 16, 2011. The decorated bras are due on Monday, Oct. 3, 2011 to the Tiger Hotel.
The main event will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 5, 2011 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Tiger Hotel in Columbia, Mo. Admission costs $30 at the door or $25 for advanced reservations. To make your reservations, contact Charlene Johnson at (573) 882-6100. Those who submit decorated bras receive one free admission to the event.
Last year, 135 people attended the event. The decorated bras were auctioned and raised more than $7,700. All of the proceeds benefited breast cancer patient care programs and screening mammograms at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center.
