The Fifth Annual Bra Project will conclude its tour of the Lowcountry with the Bras & Bubbly evening event on Thursday, Oct. 24, when the winner of the competition for best-designed bra will be revealed.
The event will run from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Thibault Gallery at 815 Bay St., Beaufort, South Carolina.
The Bra Project competition includes 13 bras designed by students from Hilton Head High School, May River High School and Bluffton High School. The bras have been on a display tour collecting votes from the public throughout October.
In addition to recognizing the student whose bra design received the most votes, Bras & Bubbly will hold a silent auction featuring pieces donated by local artists who have a breast cancer story to share. Guests will also enjoy light refreshments and music.
The student-designed bras will be displayed in the gallery during the week leading up to Bras & Bubbly.
All proceeds from Bras & Bubbly ticket sales and the silent auction will be donated to DragonBoat Beaufort’s support of local cancer patients and survivors in Beaufort County.

“We are so excited to host Bras & Bubbly again,” said Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group. “It is such a wonderful way to bring the community together to celebrate the work these students have put into raising awareness for breast cancer, as well as to honor the contributions of local artists and the women of DragonBoat Beaufort. Bras & Bubbly gives us all a time to reflect on what we have accomplished in the name of breast cancer awareness, and then we’ll do it all again next year.”
This marks the fifth year Pinnacle Medical Group has organized The Bra Project and the second year the group has hosted the Bras & Bubbly event.
