Thank you Kansas City! Due to your generosity and support for Bra Couture KC, we were able to increase donations almost 10% over 2016. We are all part of such an amazing community.
Our sincere appreciation goes out to so many people. First and foremost are our 2017 models/survivors who not only gave of their time and energy, but also sold a record number of admission tickets. Along with our models, we are grateful to have the talents of designers, artists, and stylists who lent their significant skills to making our models look and feel absolutely amazing. Finally, of course, our heartfelt thank you to everyone else who made Bra Couture 2017 a success: the amazing patrons who attended our event, the local restaurants, Tom Town’s and McCormick breweries and distributors who provided our amazing signature drinks, our team of Infiniti drivers who donated their evening escorting our patrons, and last but in no way least, to Signature Hangar for continuing to donate our event space. Due to these people, orchestrated by a talented and tireless group of volunteers serving on Bra Couture committees, Bra Couture KC 2017 was a success!
This money gives us the ability to continue and to even expand our mammogram screening parties that we hold every other month within the under-served communities with Surviving the Odds, to continue to support Missys’ Boutique with wigs, prosthetics, medical assistance, transportation for care, and lymphedema garments at the University of Kansas Cancer Center, and to continue to support all of the following:
• Services for uninsured cancer patients at Truman Medical Center
• Services for uninsured cancer patients at Cancer Action
• Lymphedema management for uninsured cancer patients at North Kansas City Hospital
Further, you have given us the ability to consider several additional grant requests from other service organizations across the greater Kansas City area, ensuring that our dollars reach as many uninsured/underinsured cancer patients as possible. Every dollar that you donate to us stays right here in Kansas City to help those in our community.
We work hard to improve our event every year so I encourage you to let us know if there are any ways we can improve your experience at our event. Finally, please spread the word about Bra Couture KC so that we have the opportunity to increase our donations and serve even more individuals in the future.
Bra Couture KC 2018 will be April 13, 2018 at Signature Hangar. We look forward to seeing you then! Please let us know if you would like to join us in volunteer support of Bra Couture KC at www.bracouturekc.com.
