of the American Cancer Society and Encore Plus. 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.
