Hudson Valley Hospital Center Hosts Bra Decorating Contest in Celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Cortlandt Manor, NY - (September 19, 2012) – In celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Hudson Valley Hospital Center invites women  to attend “Jazz Up Your Foundation” on Thursday, October 25 from 6 PM to 8PM in The Cheryl R. Lindenbaum Cancer Center Main Lobby.

The evening’s festivities will include a breast cancer awareness health fair, featuring preventative measures women between the ages of 25 and 50 can take to help reduce their chances of breast cancer. Signature “Pink Drinks” will be served by local participating restaurants and light fare will be served. 

In addition, the center will be hosting a bra-decorating contest.  The top submissions will be on display on October 25th at “Jazz up Your Foundation.” Women around the community will be encouraged to decorate a 36C bra, showing in some way how breast cancer has affected their lives personally. 

Guidelines for the bra-decorating contest submissions are:

Eligibility: All original artwork (decorated bras). All submission must be in good taste.

Registration deadline: October 1, 2012
Submission deadline: By 4 p.m. October 19th, 201
1978 Crompond Road, Cortlandt Manor, NY 10547

Decorating guidelines: Outside of the bras must be decorated completely including the straps and sides of the bras. Bra size 36C or larger is the preferred size for decorating. We suggest using a well constructed or lined bra to make the decorating process easier. Acceptable methods of application: sewing, fasteners, or strong glues. 

* Please include the name of your bra, decorator’s name and contact information with your submission.
