First Report 9/28:  Bras Across the Water Fundraiser, sponsored by Freedom Boat Club, will be held October 26th from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m.

Bras Across the Water is an event that aims to bring support to breast cancer awareness month and to raise money for the American Cancer Society's signature event, Relay For Life, in 2012. There will be bands, games, vendors, and a balloon release.  A BBQ Cook-Off will also be part of the festivities. 

Last year's 800 donated bras were strung across the intercoastal waterway from the Harbourgate Marina fuel dock to the Tiki Bar at Filet's Restaurant.  They were later donated to various charities. This year, 2,000 bras will be needed to span the entire length of the bridge over Harbourgate Marina. 

Anyone interested in donating bras may drop them off at the following locations: Freedom Boat Club, Harbourgate Marina, Filet's Restaurant and Cumulus Radio. Call Karen Berry at Freedom Boat Club, (843) 339-8711, for more drop off locations after October 1st.

Check out their Facebook Event Page and let them know you'll be there to donate and show your support -pun firmly intended.
