Art Bra KC Celebrates Survival

Locally designed, one-of-a-kind bras help raise breast cancer awareness.

If you’ve stopped by Legends Outlets Kansas City this month, chances are you’ve seen something a little unusual—a display of 40 artfully created bras in a pop-up window installation.

The bras, which can be viewed in the window across from the Brooks Brothers Factory store, will remain on display through April 29 and aim to raise breast cancer awareness and interest in Art Bra KC’s main fundraiser on Friday, May 2.

At the unique auction event held at Signature Flight Support in the TWA Signature Hangar at the Downtown Airport, attendees can bid on works of art donated by more than 50 local artists and see a fashion show where breast cancer survivors model the top 25 bras. They’ll also have the chance to meet Sporting KC and Kansas City Chiefs players and mingle with the KC Zoo’s new penguin mascot.

Money raised benefits Missys’ Boutique Patient In Need Fund at the University of Kansas Hospital and the new cancer appearance center at the Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Center at Truman Medical Center, appearance centers for eligible uninsured and underinsured cancer patients that offer services and products designed to help patients and survivors overcome obstacles with dignity and style.

Looking for a way to contribute before the big event? Swing by Standard Style at the County Club Plaza between 6 and 8 p.m. tonight, where you can receive a 20 percent discount and a portion of the sales go toward Art Bra KC.
