Women Supporting Women to Host 9th Annual Bras for a Cause Event


Salisbury, MD – January 25, 2019 – One of WSW’s signature events, Bras for a Cause, is headed back to the Centre at Salisbury for its 9th year! For nearly a decade, community members and businesses alike have been creating beautifully decorated bras to raise funds for the many services Women Supporting Women offers.

The themes for this year are recycling & best breast cancer message. Throughout the month, everyone is encouraged to vote in various categories by donating $1.00 per vote. Additionally, a select panel of judges will also rate the submissions according to best recycled themed bra, best breast cancer message, and a special category that includes submissions from our DIY night at Hoppers! This event will kick off on May 1st, with our big reveal at the Centre at Salisbury, and will remain open until Tuesday, May 21st.

Women Supporting Women Event Coordinator, Shelby Moore, and Co-Chair, Alane Emerson are working together to organize the event. “We’re excited because we’ve added a few new elements this year,” Moore says. “We’ve been generously welcomed back to the Centre at Salisbury for our main event, but we’re also adding in a DIY bra decorating night at Hoppers on April 4th for those who’d like to get a jump start on their bras.” We encourage new & past participants alike to create a bra & submit it to the WSW office by April 24th, 2019.

Submission forms and rules can be found by visiting the event page on Women Supporting Women’s website at www.womensupportingwomen.org or by calling the office at 410.548.7880.

Women Supporting Women is a local, grass-roots non-profit organization dedicated to providing awareness, education and support to all those who are affected by breast cancer. With no national ties or funding, they rely completely on our community to help provide free services to our neighbors, friends and families right here on Delmarva.
