PHOTOS: Bras on Broadway event packs Hotel Donaldson

FARGO - Donors and supporters packed The Hotel Donaldson on Thursday night for the sold-out event marking the end of the monthlong Bras on Broadway fundraiser.

Throughout October, businesses, teams and individuals collected bras and donations for the campaign, in its eighth year.

More than 500 bras were donated this year, including those decorated at the BRAzaar earlier this month at the Fargo Civic Center.

The BRAzaar, Bras on Broadway’s bra-decorating party, raised $4,000 alone, with 400 people attending.

On Monday, 4,300 bras were strung down the downtown Fargo building and across the street, creating a colorful spectacle to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This year, a private donor gave the hotel a $10,000 match grant. Donations will continue to be accepted online through Oct. 31.

In its first seven years, Bras on Broadway has raised more than $430,000 for women in the area fighting breast cancer. A new total will be available at the end of the month.
