The Titusville Ladies Club (TLC) presents “The Journey of the Traveling
Bras,” a beautifully decorated display of 10 showcased bras making
their way across Titusville, with various stops along the way. Each stop
of the Traveling Bras will showcase the intricate workmanship that was
involved in the design and creation of these wearable, themed “works
of art,” decorated and generously donated by Jean Shuford and Pamela
Childers of JBI Bling in Mims.
TLC will kickoff this journey with a fund-raiser on Saturday, September
8, 2012, from 5 – 8 pm hosted by Krista James Salon at 4350 S. Hopkins
Avenue in Titusville. This event will be the first of four that TLC is
organizing to bring the community together for a good cause. Proceeds
will be donated to Jess Parrish Medical Foundation to support cancer care
programs at Parrish Medical Center (PMC).
Two-dozen salons and boutiques are participating in the kickoff fund-raiser—a
shopping extravaganza where attendees will have a chance to purchase unique
fashions and accessories, as well as salon products and services, with
a percentage of sales being donated to the cause. Attendees can also enter
for a chance to win valuable gift baskets and prizes donated by the salons.
Now through December, Krista James’ Salon is also donating 100 percent
of all profits for any pink (or with any trace of pink) products sold
in the salon. Participating salons have entered into a friendly competition
for the title of the “Most Client Supported Salon for Fighting Cancer
in Titusville” by having the most clients attend the event. Pick
up your “voting ticket” at your local Titusville salon and
bring it with you to the event to show your support. Admission is free
to this community event, but guests should be ready to donate for raffle
tickets, food and beverages.
“The Journey of the Traveling Bras” will continue on October
18 at Merle Norman Boutique in Titusville, and then on November 3 at the
Historic Downtown Titusville’s Car Show. The final stop of the journey
will be at TLC’s signature event, the “New Year, New Life”
New Year’s Eve Gala at Sherwood Golf & Country Club, where the
beautifully decorated bras will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
More details about each of these events will be announced as the dates
“We established Titusville Ladies Club because we wanted to raise
money to help women in our community who are dealing with breast cancer
since two of our friends were diagnosed within one year of each other.
I’m proud to say we raised $1,875 for PMC cancer programs last year
and can’t wait to see what we’re able to raise by hosting
these four events,” said Fran Colman, event chairwoman.
