In support of Breast Cancer Awareness, Maize Valley is hosting a "Bra Decorating Contest". This idea grew out of an experience that owner, Michelle Bakan, had while participating in the Susan G Komen 3-day walk for a cure this past August in Michigan.
While on the walk, Michelle had the honor of walking thru a decorated bra exhibit. This exhibit had over 100 decorated bras - everything from ice cream cones, to grapevines, to puppy dogs covered these bras. Lace and jewels, beads and more turned these undergarments of all sizes into works of art. All done to support the fight against breast cancer.
Michelle, who is a survivor, thought it would be a really cool to incorporate this idea of decorating a bra into a contest as well as a fundraiser for the Susan G Komen Foundation.
We invite our customers and guests to get creative - and submit their decorated bra (one or more). All bras will be hung in the winery. Visitors to Maize Valley can "vote" for their favorite with a monetary donation (all of which will go to support the fight against breast cancer). The bra which gets the most votes will be declared the winner - and the creator will receive a Maize Valley Prize Package.
So get out your bedazzler and glue guns. Entries are now being accepted and the contest runs from March 1 - May 4 at which time the winner will be announced. Bras will be auctioned at the "Pink Party" to be held May 8.
