Join us for the benefit auction at the Altamont Brewing Company on August 7th from 6-9pm at 1042 Haywood Rd., West Asheville, NC 28806 and support this worthwhile program!
Area artists have created a handcrafted and/or embellished bra to be a part of a runway show. Artful Bras are humorous, whimsical, serious or lovely. Pieces are either wearable or able to be carried by a model. Selected entries will be displayed and auctioned during the live and silent auctions. All proceeds from the event will benefit Ladies Night Out.
Ladies Night Out is a program offered by Mission Hospital, the Asheville Breast Center and Buncombe County Department of Health’s Breast and Cervical Cancer and Wise Woman Programs. The program covers the cost of a mammogram for women who are faced with a gap in insurance coverage and who qualify for the Buncombe County Department of Health’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Program (BCCCP).
Ladies Night Out is the first Thursday night of each month. Interpreter services are available.
For more information, you can call Ladies Night Out at 828-250-6006. If you would like to learn more about the program, volunteer or become a sponsor, please visit the website: http://ashevilleartfulbra.com
