BJ Grand Salon & Spa seeking designers for Beautiful Bras Fundraiser
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WCCU) —
BJ Grand Salon & Spa is seeking designers to participate in the 9th Annual Beautiful Bras Fundraiser. Money raised supports women and men in central Illinois who have undergone cancer treatment by purchasing hair loss accessories including wigs, hats, and scarves for wig boutiques located in Springfield and Champaign, Illinois. The hair loss services at these facilities are offered at no cost to breast cancer patients and other cancer patients with limited financial resources.
Using a white bra as a canvas, participants are invited to design a bra that best represents their own personal story, business, or is simply a reflection of their creative style. Through October, bras can be viewed at any of the three BJ Grand Salon & Spa locations as well as at bjgrandsalon.com/beautifulbras. Viewers can vote for their favorite bra. Each vote costs $5.
In 2016, Beautiful Bras raised $15,000 and included over 60 designers.
“They created some of the most beautiful entries we’ve seen and rallied their supporters to raise over $3,700 in the last week of voting,” said Gail Lorenzini, vice-president of BJ Salons Inc.
Prizes will be awarded to two bra designers per salon location. An award will go to the designer that raises the most money at each salon. A second award will go to the “Grand Design,” the bra considered by our panel of professionals to be the best and most
creatively designed bra at each salon location. Each winner will receive a BJ Grand Salon & Spa gift card, a package of do. Active Products and a plush Kashwére throw.
Everyone casting a vote during the Beautiful Bras promotion will have his/her name entered into a random drawing to win a do. Active Products gift basket. Anyone interested in designing a bra, may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, call 217-753-8070, or visit any BJ Grand Salon & Spa location. Bras can be picked up at any of the salon locations between August 2-20, 2017. Designed bras must be turned in by September 8, 2017.
