DOWNTOWN GOES PINK WITH BRAS IN THE CITY
"Go Downtown Salem and the downtown merchants are helping drive awareness to one of the biggest health concerns of women-breast cancer. For the second annual Bras in the City, participating downtown stores will “Go Pink” Wednesday Oct 6 from 5 to 8 PM.
The Bras in the City is a fund-raiser for the YWCA Women’s Health Program screening services. This program is lead by the dynamic and tenacious Karla Iverson. Last year’s first annual event helped raise over $1500 and over 100 women received screenings. The service is offered to women in Marion and Polk counties.

The evening’s event begins at 5 PM with over a dozen stores and restaurants offering enter to win drawings, “pink specials”, and pink refreshments and drinks. Pink cupcakes, pink martinis, pink margaritas, pink candy are just a few examples of fun happenings in the businesses. A pink tour map of the complete evening’s activities will be available on our website or at the information booth on the corner of Liberty and Court.
A new addition to this year’s Bras in the City will be a fashion show. JC Penney, Bittersweet Boutique, Olive Boutique, French Unicorn, and evening and prom fashions from The Bridal Gallery will highlight Fall 2010 fashions. A special section of the fashion show will have “celebrity models” showcasing the artful bras designed by local artists. The bras will be auctioned off to raise money for the cancer-screening program of the YWCA. The fashion show begins at 6:30 PM and is the opening entertainment to the first of the Fall and Winter Blues Concert Series.
