ALTON, IL -- The second annual “Bras on Broadway” fund-raiser attracted 62 submitted works of art that were available for purchase at a reception and silent auction held Saturday, Nov. 22. The reception had 120 attendees, and approximately $3,400 was raised to benefit Alton Memorial Hospital’s breast cancer patient support program, “You’ve Got a Friend.”

Gallery voting for the “Bra-vo” (People’s Choice) Award during the three-week exhibit resulted in Rose Tomlinson of Elsah winning for the second year in a row. Her bra, Rose’s Roses for Remembrance, was made in memory of friends and loved ones who have been affected by breast cancer.  Another Bra-vo was presented to Brittney Maronie of Godfrey, who garnered the most social media Instagram votes. Her Angel of Music bra was dedicated to four of her family members.
