Uniquely styled brassieres are auctioned at a fundraiser for The Bridge Breast Network.

Support breast cancer treatment and be entertained with “uniquely styled brassieres” Aug. 25 at the fifth annual 2019 Bra Art Dallas founded by neighborhood resident Tracy Thornton-Clinton. The event raises money to support clients of The Bridge Breast Network, 4000 Junius St. in East Dallas.

Thornton-Clinton’s mother was a Bridge client prior to her death, and Thornton-Clinton says she began the event in 2015 in honor of her mother.

Last year’s event raised $25,000, the bulk of which was donated to Bridge to fund breast cancer diagnostic and treatment services for low-income, uninsured and underinsured women and men.

The artistic brassieres are modeled by amateurs, and the event includes music, refreshments and a charity raffle.

For information, contact Thornton-Clinton at tcclinton1@hotmail.com or 214-815-3445. The free event will take place at the Fraternal Order of Eagles, 8500 Arturo Drive, from 2-5 p.m.
