KERNERSVILLE, N.C. – Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center will host its eighth annual Oooh Bra La La breast cancer awareness event on Thursday, Oct. 24, 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center Lambe Conference Center.
The uplifting “girls night out” not only celebrates breast cancer survivors but also brings awareness to the importance of early detection and cancer treatment options. Food, wine, prize drawings, and the always popular artistic bra contest will make for an evening you do not want to miss.
Entries for the contest are now being accepted. The more creative the better! Participants can either embellish a bra or build a bra from scratch. All entries must be submitted to the medical center’s front desk no later than 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16. Bras can be entered by individuals, businesses, schools, churches or clubs.
The event is free and open to the public but attendees will be able to purchase tickets to vote for their favorite bras. All proceeds will benefit the Think Pink Fund of the Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center Foundation, which supports breast cancer screenings for women in need across the Triad.
