CUPS RUNNETH OVER WITH COMPASSION IN STUDENTS’ PROJECT
Fashion Students at MTSU Design ‘Bras for a Cause’ to Fund Cancer Research
(MURFREESBORO) – The Textiles, Merchandising and Design Program at MTSU will hold a celebration party for the “Bras for a Cause” campaign from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, in the Georgetown Park Shopping Center, across the parking lot from Penny’s Closet, 1602 West Northfield Blvd in Murfreesboro.
Students in Dr. Teresa Robinson’s introductory fashion courses have lent their creative efforts to this activity to support research during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The bras are on display at Penny’s Closet, where customers are invited to vote for their favorites with donations of $1 each. The top 13 bras will be published in a 2011 calendar, which will be available for purchase next month.
At the celebration party, voting will continue and winners will be announced. There also will be a silent auction consisting of items and services donated by local businesses. All proceeds will go to benefit cancer research.
For more information, contact Dr. Teresa Robinson at 615-898-2156 or email@example.com or Penny Bolton at 615-890-0415 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
