The Bra Project raises more than $5,000 for DragonBoat Beaufort

2 mins read

Pinnacle Medical Group recently presented $5,140 to representatives of DragonBoat Beaufort, a local nonprofit that benefits breast cancer survivors in the Lowcountry.

The donation was raised from Pinnacle Medical Group’s fifth annual “The Bra Project,” a competition that featured one-of-a-kind bras created by students from Hilton Head Island High School, May River High School and Bluffton High School.

The bras were featured at the second annual Bras & Bubbly, a charity event hosted by Pinnacle Medical Group designed to rally together the community to raise awareness and funds to support local breast cancer survivors. The event also celebrated the work of local artists who contributed pieces inspired by their own personal stories.

All proceeds raised from Bras & Bubbly ticket sales and the silent auction were donated to DragonBoat Beaufort to assist in their goal of helping cancer patients who live, work or receive treatment in the Lowcountry. A local commercial construction firm, The Dewitt Tilton Group, also contributed $1,000 to the project.

“We’re always thrilled to host The Bra Project, and we’re thankful to be a part of such a dedicated community that cares about women’s health and breast cancer awareness as much as we do,” Dr. Audrey Klenke, plastic surgeon and principal of Pinnacle Medical Group, said in a release. “Thank you to all who attended Bras & Bubbly and a special thank you to the students and artists who came together to create a stellar event. This year, we raised more this year than all the other four years combined and we are so excited to see what next year brings.”
