ARTrageous Bras Raise Funds for Cancer Care Programs

Black Guitar Angel ARTrageous BraOctober 5, 2015–The annual ARTrageous Bras fundraiser at Southeast Georgia Health System kicked off on Oct. 1, 2015. The exciting and creative bra entries, designed by Health System team members and community individuals and businesses, are on display in the Horton Gallery on the Brunswick Campus and the art gallery on the Camden Campus.

The first stage of the fundraiser includes collecting votes, at $1 each, from Oct. 1-31, to determine the top 10 bras. The fundraiser culminates on Nov. 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. with the ARTrageous Bras reception and live auction, consisting of the top 10 bras, and the silent auction for the remaining bras. This lively event, which is open to the community, will be held at the Historic Ritz Theatre, 1530 Newcastle Street, in historic downtown Brunswick. Proceeds from the ARTrageous Bras fundraiser benefit the Health System cancer care programs.

“ARTrageous is a really fun, unique way to increase breast cancer awareness and partner with our communities,” says Krista Robitz, director, Development, Southeast Georgia Health System Foundation. “We have 63 participants this year, with 16 of those displayed on the Camden Campus, which is our largest number to date. We’re so pleased that the event continues to grow each year.”

Pink Sailor ARTrageous BraVotes can be placed by calling the Foundation office, in person at the Brunswick and Camden Campus Guest Services desks, and electronically on the Health System website, sghs.org/ARTrageous,

“Rankings change daily with sometimes the difference between bras being three, five or 10 votes,” adds Robitz. “So a bra that’s not currently in the top 10 could easily become so with the investment of just a few dollars!”
