7th Annual BRAvo Community Fundraiser & Auction
The Ah Haa School started the BRAvo Auction & Fundraiser as an entertaining way for the community to come together to shed some light on serious and often painful issues. Telluride is a highly talented community. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the bras people submit for the BRAvo fundraiser each year. Bottle caps, paint, felt and even keys and electronics have adorned the modeled bras. Members of the community have let their imaginations run wild and have definitely been uninhibited in their designs. The Telluride men who strut these creations on the New Sheridan Bar for the live auction are just as uninhibited. Having men model the bras makes them an active part of the event and turns the tables in a fun and festive way. BRAvo happens in October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as well as Domestic Violence Prevention Month. Each year the BRAvo Annual Bra Invitational Auction & Fundraiser raises money to support the San Miguel Resource Center, a local nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault in our community, and Bosom Buddies, a breast cancer support group for southwestern Colorado. The Ah Haa School for the Arts will supply bras for you to decorate for the event. Bras will be displayed at the school until the event. Gentlemen from Telluride’s volunteer fire department will model the community’s bra creations in a live auction. Proceeds benefit the San Miguel Resource Center & Bosom Buddies, a breast cancer support group of southwestern Colorado.
