Bras for Hope Event
Our 5th Annual Bras for Hope Event will be held October 22nd, 2016 - #BrasForHope
Grab your mom, aunt, sister, or a few girlfriends and come out to our store in Fairfax Corner to learn how to treat those ta-tas right!
Bras for Hope is an event that we put on each year to support breast cancer awareness and early detection. A portion of the proceeds from this year's event will be donated to the Inova Health System's Life with Cancer Foundation, so it's a perfect time to come out and refresh your bra wardrobe!
On this day donated bras will be hung throughout Fairfax Corner to commemorate those who have suffered and to encourage awareness for early detection through education. Our friends from Inova Life With Cancer and Fairfax Radiological Consultants will be providing educational information for anyone in need.
Two years ago, we proudly launched Anita Care Mastectomy Products making us the only specialty lingerie store to offer products and fittings for women who have undergone or are currently undergoing breast cancer treatment in Fairfax County. We are thrilled about being able to provide some TLC to this under-served segment of women and will be showcasing additional styles the day of our event.
Our event will feature:
- 3 Certified Mastectomy Fitters
- Comfortable, functional, and fashionable post surgical products from Anita care
- Educational info from local breast care practices/healthcare providers
- 10% off store wide for shoppers
- SWAG Bags for the first 25 purchases
- Gifts with qualifying purchases, while supplies last
- **AMAZING** Raffle items from our designers as well as our local business friends
- Refreshments & Fun Times!
Our BRA DROP is for the entire month of October - #BraDropNOVA
Leading up to the 22nd we will be collecting bras of any condition, good, bad or well loved, to be recycled. We will be sending all good/fair condition bras to local women's shelters (via New Endeavors by Women) in our community and all retired bras will be recycled.
We're very thankful to have an amazing group of designers and neighboring businesses that support our cause each year by generously donating raffle prizes to give out to some of our lucky attendees on the 22nd. Click here to see the list of raffle items and GWP's from 2015, however, we find the list grows more and more each year!
In 2015 we collected 1,027 bras and this would not have been possible without the help of these lovely ladies from Delta Sigma Theta and the gentlemen from the Eta Delta Delta Chapter of Omega Psi Phi. This is the 2nd year the Deltas have come together to donate and deliver 150 BRAND NEW bras to us the day of our Bras for Hope event! The handsome Omegas reached out to us to collect gently used and new bras on the GMU campus to create awareness about the occurrence of breast cancer in younger women.
