More photos from Hendricks Regional Health’s ninth annual Bra Art Auction Sept. 28 at the Hendricks County 4-H Fairgrounds and Conference Complex. Themed “Game On,” the event included a tailgate buffet, beer and wine pull, silent and live auctions and a fashion show that paired models with artistically-designed bras.
The funds benefit the American Cancer Society in Indiana, Indiana Women In Need (IWIN) Foundation and the Hendricks Regional Health Foundation. The fundraiser also supports Jan’s Warriors, a group founded by HRH patient Janis Brunner of Brownsburg who started the organization after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017.
Preliminarily the event raised $20,000, said Adam Scott, Hendricks Regional Health Foundation executive director.
