Are you creative? Searching for a fresh new medium to flaunt the art in your heart? Bras for Cause is a community campaign bringing awareness to breast cancer and raising funds to support the work of Oregon Cancer Foundation! So grab a bra, channel your creativity and decorate! Then vote for your favorite participant. $1=1 vote. Vote as many times as you’d like. All proceeds go directly to OCF’s Financial Assistance Program, supporting patients undergoing cancer treatment in Lane County.


Wednesday, Oct. 5, 4-7pm
Center Court at Valley River Center, Eugene

Let your artistic spirit shine on a bold, new canvas we can almost guarantee you’ve never worked with before—a bra! Take part in this community event showcasing wild creativity, collaboration and friendly competition, all in support of the Oregon Cancer Foundation. A $10 entry fee gets you a bra and craft supplies—everything from hot glue guns to glitter, feathers, sequins and more—to bring your creation to life.

Submission deadline

Finished bras can be turned in at the Build-A-Bra event. For those who need more time to finish their masterpiece, be sure to drop your bra off at Dandelions Flowers & Gifts by 5pm, Fri., Oct. 14.


Voting runs Oct. 17-31

Peruse the finished bras in person at Dandelions Flowers & Gifts, or online through October 31. Once you decide on your favorite—or maybe you have a few—submit your votes. Each vote costs $1; and there’s no limit to how many times you can vote. The more votes cast means more money raised to support cancer patients in Lane County.

How to vote:
Vote online with debit or credit card. Votes purchased online count only towards the Grand Prize. To place your vote in other prize categories, stop in at Dandelions Flowers and Gifts.

Cash, check, credit, and debit cards will be accepted in store.

Place your vote by phone at 541-485-1261 with a credit/debit card.

Reveal Party

You’re invited to an evening of frivolity and fresh artistic style to kick off the voting! All members of the community are welcome to drop in and show support for their favorite bra artists while enjoying refreshments, good conversation and some light, competitive banter!
