Service Project: Blinged Up Bras At The County Fair

For the MOMS Club of Hays, KS, the Ellis County Fair is one of the highlights of the community calendar.   This year, the moms were looking for a way to help support the county fair, contribute to a good cause, and have a little bit of fun.  Their answer?  Bedazzling their bras!

The “Bedazzle Your Bra” event at the fair raises money for the Ellis County Cancel Council and builds awareness for breast cancer research.  Fair attendees were able to vote on the “blingiest bra” by placing a dollar in the jar of their favorite bra.   The bra with the most money collected wins!

To get ready for the big contest, the chapter held an appetizer / snack potluck / decorating party.   The chapter collected some unwanted bras from their members.   At the party, members were given fringe, beads, feathers, glue, glitter, shells, and anything else that would give their bra a special edge!

In the end, the chapter produced some truly memorable bras:  “The Twins”, “Floral Fantasy”, “Madonna Inspired”, “Candy Crazy” and, of course, “Bejeweled”!
