Are you ready to bling up that bra? Use your imagination to create an entry for our Uplifting Designs Contest and fundraiser! The decorated bras will be on display in the small park to the left of Fuzzy Farmers in Downtown Leonardtown on First Friday, October 6th from 5-8 pm.
Each bra will be accompanied by a pink donation bucket where people can “vote” with their cash or check donations for their favorite bra(s). The donations will be given to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital to assist with providing screenings, early detection, support services and related benefits for our community. The artist of the bra with the most “votes” (aka donations) at the end of the evening will win a gift card to a local restaurant.
There is no charge for artists to submit a decorated piece of Bra Art but all entries are due no later than Tuesday, October 3rd. For registration form details and additional info visit: www.stmarysartscouncil.com, you may enter individually or as a team or group.
