MECDA's braVo! 2011
Long Beach, United States
Bra Decorating Contest and Charity Fundraiser
Do you have the knack for sewing, decorating, costume making? Or are you just extremely creative and crafty? Either way, we want your creation!
MECDA’s BraVo is a bra-decorating contest for all of the brilliant dancers, costumers, and people in our community that love to create! Decorate a bra, register, and show up at MECDA’s 34th Annual Cairo Caravan to find out if you won! All proceeds from registration will go to The National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.
Think Pink! Think black and white, think purple and orange… just think and create! The National Breast Cancer Foundation's mission is to save lives by increasing awareness of breast cancer through education and by providing mammograms for those in need. NBCF accomplishes this mission through various initiatives. NBCF programs provide women help for today and hope for tomorrow.
Whether your bra is an over the shoulder boulder holder, a demi-petit, or a training bra, we all value our female figures. Help other women value their figures again and have fun doing it! Imagine the possibilities! Dye it, cover it in flowers, ribbons, sequins, or whatever item you can glue on. Categories for the entries include: Classy & Sassy, Wild & Wacky, Wearable Art, Second Chance Enhance and Think Pink! Please visit our website for descriptions of each category. www.mecda.org/cairo/bravo
Winners will be determined the number of “dollar votes” received. Voting will start on Friday, June 3rd at 5pm and close on Sunday, June 5th at 2pm. A winner in each category will be chosen as well as a “Best of Show”. Winners will be announced on the World of Wonders stage (Thebes level) at 3:30pm. All registration fees, voting dollars, and donations will go to the National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation.
