Annual BRAvo Auction & Fundraiser
Gentlemen from Telluride's Fire and Police Departments and Service Clubs will model the community's bra creations in both a live and silent auction to benefit the San Miguel Resource Center & Bosom Buddies, a Breast Cancer Support Group of Southwestern Colorado. Get creative and decorate a bra to be auctioned off at the Ah Haa School for the Arts - bra provided.
The Ah Haa School started the BRAvo Auction & Fundraiser as an entertaining way for the community to come together to shed some light on serious and often painful issues. Telluride is a highly talented community. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the bras people submit for the BRAvo fundraiser each year. Bottle caps, paint, felt and even keys and electronics have adorned the modeled bras. Members of the community have let their imaginations run wild and have definitely been uninhibited in their designs.
The Telluride men who strut these creations on the New Sheridan Bar for the live auction are just as uninhibited. Having men model the bras makes them an active part of the event and turns the tables in a fun and festive way. BRAvo happens in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as Domestic Violence Prevention Month. Each year the BRAvo Annual Bra Invitational Auction & Fundraiser raises money to support the San Miguel Resource Center, a local nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault in our community, and Bosom Buddies, a breast cancer support group for southwestern Colorado.
