“We are thrilled to once again host Battle of the Bras, which over the past seven years has allowed us to raise and donate over $750,000 to the American Cancer Society,” said R. Scott Barber, Regional President, Caesars Mid-South. “Caesars sponsors the American Cancer Society locally and nationally, and we are excited to add the annual Battle of the Bras to the many other volunteer and fundraising events we participate in around the Mid-South.”
Teams of Caesars Mid-South employees will decorate the bras in a way that tells a story related to cancer. The bras will be on display for voting and donation collection at Horseshoe Tunica from Friday, October 11
until Friday, November 1. Bras may also be viewed and voted on with monetary donations online starting October 11 at the Battle of the Bras Website. Male casino executives and local celebrities will model the top 15 bras that receive the most cash donations. Celebrity judges will make the final decision on the top three bra designs.
The event will begin at 6:30 p.m., with refreshments and games sponsored by Horseshoe Tunica; a silent and live auction; and, finally, the bra modeling and voting for the main show. All money raised will benefit the American Cancer Society. This year we will feature local Grammy-nominated singer McKenna Bray performing from 6:45 -7:30.
“Caesars and their employee volunteer HEROs have been an incredible resource for the American Cancer Society,” said Candace Dean Senior Manager, Community Development, American Cancer Society Memphis. “We are so grateful that Battle of the Bras is returning again this year.”
