Bra Decorating Contest & Fundraiser


  • Design a “bra” using any theme, materials, ideas, etc. You may start with a real bra of any size or color or make one from scratch from any material of your choosing.
  • All entries must be in good taste. Fun is certainly encouraged, but please make sure it is appropriate for all ages.
  • Please remember that the display space is limited, so keep the size of your entry manageable by one person.
  • Please include a title as part of the design. You may choose to have a simple title, descriptive, funny, touching or otherwise. A good title helps the voters connect with your creation.
  • Please provide a way to display your creation. A lingerie hanger, a body mannequin, frame or some type of plan to mount it to a grid. Lingerie forms will be for sale at Lou Nell’s for $10 each about a month before the event.  Bras must be turned in to the Health Care Foundation inside the hospital, no later than Monday, October 21 at 3:00 pm
  • Forms must be filled out when the bra is delivered. Please bring the names, emails, and phone numbers of all of the designers with you when you turn in your bra.
  • Bras will be assigned a number in the order they are delivered.
  • Bras must be picked up after the event or at the Health Care Foundation’s Office on October 28 between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm. Bras remaining after that date may be discarded. (Room 230 in the Hospital)
  • All bra-makers will receive a ribbon to wear on the weekend of the event to indicate their participation in the event.
  • Three Categories:

Mardi Bras: Bras that have anything to do with Mardi Gras…beads, feathers, masks, etc.

Awareness: Bras that put breast cancer top of mind.

Business: These bras will be a symbol of your business.  Banks…money. Bakery…cupcakes/pies, etc.

Two Ways to Win a Brazzie Award:

  • Top Money Raiser in Each Category & Top Judges Pick in Each Category wins a Brazzie
  • Shameless campaigning ahead of time is encouraged. You may display your bra somewhere and start raising money right away. We are all about raising money for the Bras for the Cause Event! If you can collect money in advance to “support” your creation’s chances of winning, please do so.

$1 buys one vote.  Please make all checks out to the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation.

  • All bras will be displayed at the Hopkins County Stew Contest Vendor Area, Friday, October 25 & Saturday, October 26. Everyone will enjoy the stew contest & festivities while checking out all of the creative bras & voting for their favorite.
  • Awards Presentation at approximately 12:30 pm on Saturday, October 26 at the Stew Contest.
