One hundred bras were donated by Maiden Form.  The entries in this project were  judged by a panel in several categories.  Prizes were awarded for Viewers Choice.  The cost was $1.00 per vote and ballots were available at most venues.  All the proceeds from the ballots and auctions went to the aforementioned charity.  For more information go to http://brazieres4acure.blogspot.com or call Louise Tiemann (607)798-7598.
