In Her Cups Bras for a Cause Art Auction, November 4th, 2016

Our 8th annual
In Her Cups Bras for a Cause Art Auction will be on Friday, November 4th at The Runway in the Knapp’s Centre from 6:00-8:00pm.

Why should you attend? What is the event all about?

In short: To enjoy good company, eat, drink, view amazing br’art, and BID on it!

Bras are submitted by individuals, groups, survivors, skilled trade groups, and corporations. You’ll see creations made out of ceramic, pipe-fitter, and all sorts of surprising materials! Bras are often made in dedication to loved ones affected by cancer or traumatic events, and survivors of trauma have made bras as an outlet to heal. Selected bra art will be up for bid in the live auction, and bras will also be sold via silent auction (they sell anywhere from $40 to $350!) And of course, again this year the Mitten Mavens Roller Derby team will be modeling the live auction bras.

Your Impact

All of the money raised will go to programs that we offer at the Women’s Center of Greater Lansing, primarily to our Cancer Care program that provides support and resources to women and their families during and after cancer. Our other programs help women realize their potential, find economic independence, and heal from traumatic events. Your support at this fundraising event directly helps the lives of women in the Greater Lansing area.
