BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Beyond Boobs! invites you to attend the second annual Brutes, Bras and Bow Ties event, presented by the Florida Beer Company on Saturday, Sept. 16 at the American Muscle Car Museum.
The event begins at 5:30 p.m. with a silent auction and photo booth, followed by the Brutes racing a 9-foot-tall Pink Heel car in their bras, and the crowning of “Mr. Brutastic 2017.”
Enjoy light bites and beverages from local restaurants while touring the largest privately owned vintage car collection around.
Men competing for this year’s title include local businessmen, husbands of survivors and firefighters. Eric Wildenradt, the reigning Mr. Brutastic, will be back to defend his title.
“Here for the Girls” offers Beyond Boobs! support groups to young breast cancer survivors so they don’t have to feel alone after diagnosis.
A trained volunteer facilitator, who is also a survivor, hosts monthly meetings in her home, giving these young women a safe and nurturing space to support one another.
“This event is important to our organization because this is our one big fundraiser for the year,” said Lisa Williams, operations manager of the Florida group.
Williams went on to say, “We don’t receive money from anywhere else and need to raise as much as we can to support as many women as we can. We provide the intangible support to young women that traditional medicine doesn’t give. The funds are used for monthly meetings, H.I.P. (Hope, Inspiration, Power) events and our annual retreat. We’d like to give a special thanks to this year’s presenting sponsor, Florida Beer Company, along with Ivey’s Construction and VFW Post 3391. We wouldn’t be here without them.”
All funds raised from the event will stay in Brevard County to help local women.
Tickets start at $100, with couple and sponsor discounts available at BeyondBoobs.org/Florida
