Bras for a Cause
Members of Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for Breast Cancer Awareness. The exhibit consists of fifty original works of art which are unique, entertaining, humorous, and beautiful to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors.
This exhibit will tour SC until Oct 2009 at which time individual Artful Bras will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to the Best Chance Network, a program that helps women ages 40 to 64 who need to be screened for breast and cervical cancer, but do not have insurance or have insurance that only covers hospital care, and who meet certain income guidelines.
The bras come prepared for display on their own hangers and are available for exhibit across the state of South Carolina. The exhibit is available until October of 2009.
