Designers needed for 5th annual Beautiful Bras fundraiser

The Beautiful Bras fundraiser, organized by BJ Grand Salon & Spa, supports those in the community undergoing cancer treatment. All proceeds are donated to purchase hair loss accessories including wigs, hats, and scarves for wig boutiques in Springfield and Champaign, Illinois. These boutiques work with patients to equip them for appearance related side effects of cancer treatments. 

Bras are available for collection at BJ Grand Salon & Spa locations this month. Bras must be returned by September 8th. All designs will go on display and can also be viewed here. The public will be asked to vote for its favorite designs. Each vote costs $5.

Promotions and events coordinator, Jessi Withers, said everyone at BJ Grand Salon & Spa loves being a part of the fundraiser and giving back to the community. “We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and we want to show that we stand behind them and support their fight.”

During the last four years Beautiful Bras raised more than $50,000. The goal is to raise another $15,000 this year.
