‘Bras for a Cause’ to lift cancer awareness

Chase County Community Hospital is launching a new cancer awareness campaign dubbed “Bras for a Cause.” They are asking area community members to help boost cancer awareness by “blinging out” a bra in decorating contest.

Entries of blinged out bras along with a free-will donation in lieu of an entry fee will be accepted through Monday, Sept. 26. They can be dropped off at the radiology department at Chase County Community Hospital in Imperial. Entry forms are available online at

There are five different categories in which to enter and each category will have one winner. Categories include:

1. Let’s hear it for the Boys — entries created by boys/men.

2. Little Diva Award — entries created by girls ages 16 or under.

3. Corporate Wear Award for the flashy, fancy entries created by businesses.

4. Shock Effect Award for the most unique or creative.

5. Cancer Awareness Award for entries created to promote awareness for any type of cancer.

Designs should be created and named in good taste and participants are asked no to include any live or perishable elements in their design.

Bras will be on display throughout the month of October and will be voted on by the public viewing them on the hospital website or visiting either the Chase County Community Hospital in Imperial or the Wauneta Chase County Clinic.

Winners will be announced on Monday, Oct. 31. Contest organizers reserve the right to refuse any entry that does not meet guidelines, that is offensive or in poor condition.

Winners are guaranteed appreciation and a heaping dose of good karma.
