ALTON — There will be two winners this year at the Bras on Broadway art display at the Jacoby Arts Center in downtown Alton.
JAC is holding an Instagram contest where people can vote for their favorite bra. Those with an Instagram account can go to Jacoby Arts Center on Facebook and view the bras from there.
Alton Memorial Hospital is again partnering with the arts center to sponsor the exhibit, which opened Friday, Oct. 31, and will continue until a benefit reception Saturday, Nov. 22. The donated bras will be auctioned off via a silent auction during that event, which will last from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the Nov. 22 reception are $30 and can be purchased by visiting www.AltonMemorialHealthServicesFoundation.org or by calling the AMH Development office at (618) 463-7701. The reception will include the silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar and the sounds of local band Off the Shoulder.
People can also vote for their favorite design in person with $1 tickets available at the Jacoby Arts Center, 627 E. Broadway, with the winner receiving the People’s Choice “Bra-vo” Award, to be announced at the Nov. 22 reception. The Jacoby Arts Center is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
Proceeds from the exhibit and auction will benefit Alton Memorial Hospital’s You’ve Got a Friend program, which provides breast cancer patients at AMH with physical, financial, mental, spiritual and emotional support.
