As most of the Bra Couture KC family knows, we lost one of our first-year models and biggest fan, Verda Salberg, to cancer this past summer. Verda is so hard to explain to those who did not know her. She was so special. Everyone who met Verda formed an instant connection to her that held tight and forever; including me.
And that connection continues. We are honored to announce that through the efforts of Verda’s husband John and all of Verda’s friends and family, Bra Couture KC has received over $17,000 in donations in memory of Verda. These funds, along with what is projected to come from Verda’s friends and family who are attending the 2018 Bra Couture KC event on April 13th, will be combined to support a new appearance center to be named Verda’s Place. Watch this space for more information about where the center will be located and when it will open.
BCKC felt that these funds should be used in a special and designated way to continue to honor the memory of a woman who was devoted to the Bra Couture KC organization from our inception. We will never stop missing Verda and she will live on in our hearts forever.
