News Apr 27, 2015 by Mark Newman Hamilton Mountain News

Sixteen decorated bras worn by women and men will be paraded on the stage before a full house at the Zoetic Theatre on May 2nd.

“We didn’t have to advertise,” said Lynn Stevens, who along with Deb Kitchen is organizing the Linseed’s Fashion Show and Bling on Bras for Cancer event at the Concession Street theatre. “It sold out within two weeks.”

Hamilton radio personality Sunni Genesco will be the MC and all proceeds from the event will go to the Cancer Assistance Program and the CIBC Breast Assessment Centre at the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre.

Stevens said Kitchen acquired the donated bras and distributed them to businesses on the street who decorated them as part of a contest.

Stevens said the bras will be on display April 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Hummingbird Café at the cancer centre and the public will be able to make a donation and vote for their favourite bra in the Best in Bling, Good Try and Originality categories with the winners being announced and auctioned off at the fashion show

The fashion show part of the program will see 12 cancer survivors modeling clothing from Linseeds.

Stevens noted prior to the show the models will get their hair and make-up done courtesy of some of the salons on the street.

The event will also feature a silent auction with more than 60 items and Stevens is hopeful they will raise more than $5,000 for the two groups.

Following the fashion show a number of businesses plan to remain open for a midnight madness sale.
