BRAS Breast Cancer Awareness


1"Members of Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for Breast Cancer Awareness. The exhibit consists of fifty original works of art which are unique, entertaining, humorous, and beautiful to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors.

This exhibit will tour SC until Oct '09 at which time individual Artful Bras will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to the Best Chance Network, a program that helps women ages 40 to 64 who need to be screened for breast and cervical cancer, but do not have insurance or have insurance that only covers hospital care, and who meet certain income guidelines.

The bras come prepared for display on their own hangers and are available for exhibit across the state of South Carolina. The exhibit is available until October of 2009."

Additionally; "QSC has produced a CD/PowerPoint presentation of the ARTFULL BRA PROJECT for purchase by individuals and groups alike. A narrative of the inspiration behind the construction of each entry will provide meaningful insight and share with the viewer poignant memories of loved ones who have survived and those we have lost to breast cancer.

A minimum donation of $35.00 for each CD purchased is required. Funds go to Best Chance Network, which provides services and screenings for uninsured women who have been diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer."

"Quilters of South Carolina began in February 1994 with a group of women with a big love of quilting. The first meeting was held in Columbia. Our first president was Helen Fairchild. We have since grown to almost 700 members from around the state as well as neighboring states."
