Bras for Cause launches earlier this year

Bras for CauseThe annual Bras for Cause campaign, Oregon Cancer Foundation’s most colorful fundraiser, will kick off in September, with the goal of raising $100,000 to support patients undergoing cancer treatment in Lane County.

The concept is simple: We invite community members and local businesses to decorate a bra, then we showcase them online at brasforcause.org and in-store at Dandelions Flowers & Gifts in Eugene, and encourage the community to donate by voting for their favorites.

“We are 100% donation-funded and 100% local,” says OCF Executive Director Amy Johnston. “The money raised through Bras for Cause contributes immensely to our annual fundraising and allows us to continue to fulfill all of the requests that we receive for financial assistance.”

Ready, set, create!
Bras for Cause 2018 gets underway on Thursday, Sept. 13, with the first of two Build-a-Bra events. Bring your family, friends and co-workers, or come solo and enjoy an evening of fun. Bras and art supplies are provided – or bring your own, if you’d like!
