It's about a month away, but plans are in the works for an event to bring awareness to breast cancer.  The Jacoby Arts Center is partnering with Alton Memorial Hospital to sponsor "Bras on Broadway", a unique exhibit of "artful" bras made to support the fight against breast cancer. The exhibit will be on view at JAC, East Gallery, from October 5th to October 25th.

The donated bras will be auctioned off via a silent auction at the "Bras on Broadway" fundraising event on October 25th. All proceeds from the exhibit and auction will go to Alton Memorial Hospital's breast cancer support program, You've Got A Friend.  Jacoby's Executive Director Ron Abraham says the artists are excited about this show.
