The fifth annual Silver Stars “Support the Memorial Healthcare Foundation” Art Bra Fundraising Event will be Thursday, Aug. 20, at the Comstock Inn & Conference Center, 300 E. Main, downtown Owosso.
“Ribbons, glitter and paint on bras, oh my!” said organizers. “We invite you to decorate a ‘Support the Memorial Healthcare Foundation’ Art Bra and participate in what is a very talked about fundraising event in our community. Please help the Silver Stars campaign raise funds which will enable the Memorial Healthcare Foundation to provide cancer screenings to community members who either are uninsured or underinsured in the Shiawassee Region.
“Use your imagination with your ‘up lifting’ creation, and don’t forget to give your Art Bra a name or a title. Think out of the ‘cup,’ fabric, flowers, pebbles, ribbons, jewelry, curlers, feathers, paint, or even dog food, etc. Google ‘Art Bras’ and get more ideas. The Art Bra entry fee is only $10.
“All Art Bras will be displayed Aug. 11 to Aug. 18 in the Memorial Medical Arts Building Cancer Center. The public is strongly encouraged to view the Art Bras Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday. All are encouraged to offer a monetary vote for their favorite entry. The Art Bra receiving the most in donations will be announced at the fundraising event the night of Aug. 20, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Comstock Inn in Owosso.
“The winning entry will have the honor of being named ‘The Winners Cup’ and will be featured each year at this event. The Art Bras will be modeled throughout the night by some male dignitaries. It is definitely a fun-filled evening with all proceeds intended to provide cancer screenings to community members who either are uninsured or underinsured. Testimonials will be heard from past recipients who have benefited from this great event. Look forward to seeing you.”
