Bras decorated by local artists will be available during a silent auction event later this month to benefit For Her Glory, a local charity that provides wigs to women who have lost their hair due to battling cancer.
The Times is putting on Bras for a Cause 4-6 p.m. Oct. 26 at the Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville.
Bras for a Cause
When: 4-6 p.m. Oct. 26
Where: Quinlan Visual Arts Center, 514 Green St. NE, Gainesville
How much: Free admission
“We’ve got 10 bras donated by Belk, and artists have decorated them,” said Leah Nelson, advertising director for The Times.
Among the artists participating are Linda Tilden, Anne Brodie Hill, Denise Wellborn, Jessica Deese, Melissa Howard and Jessica Drexler.
“It’s just whatever their interpretation is,” Nelson said about the designs. “I’ve received a couple that are holiday themed.”
Admission to the event is free, and guests will be able to enjoy wine and snacks as they view the pieces.
Nelson said The Times hopes to continue this event in the future.
“We hope it gets bigger and bigger and (we) have more artists involved,” she said. “We just hope it grows and grows.”
