No dull drawers or ugly unmentionables here. For the last month, downtown Boise merchants have had bras on the brain, courtesy of Susan G. Komen's Race for the Cure. Working in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness Month, local artists turned their boring ol' bras into amazing works of art. These holsters have been hung up in galleries spread throughout the downtown scene, and this October, they're being put to good use. These new-age negligees will be auctioned off during the Susan G. Komen Pink Social.
Organizers will distribute $425,000 in grants to 19 county service areas. The event will feature guest speakers galore, as well as a pumped-up performance by the Boise State Cheerleaders and Maneline Dancers. The St. Luke's and Saint Alphonsus Mobile Mammography vehicles will be on hand to provide tours and information, joined by other educational booths spread throughout. As the month comes to a close, tie on that pink ribbon, salute a survivor and check out those delightfully decorated boulder holders. RSVP at 208-384-0013.
Thursday, Oct. 29, 5 p.m., FREE, The Rose Room, 718 W. Idaho St., 208-384-0013, komen.org.
