Hard to believe it's almost October First Friday, the most special First Friday of the year. It's at this event that we focus all of our efforts on Breast Cancer awareness. One of the main fundraising portions of Pink Friday is the St. Mary's Arts Council's Uplifting Designs program which showcases a variety of fanciful bras decorated in fun and creative ways. First Friday visitors choose their favorite with cash votes. Our own Sigrid Stiles has won in the past with a fabulous Halloween themed bra!
Please consider submitting a bra this year - it's a fun and creative way to show your support for and reach out to the more than 230,000 women who experience invasive breast cancer each year.
For more information or to register, visit the St. Mary's Arts Council.
If you're not up to the bra challenge, you can still help - we're looking for knitters who would like to participate in a TOP SECRET mission for First Friday. We'll provide the yarn - but we need an army of knitters and helpers the night of Thursday, October 1st. If you'd like to participate please stop by the shop and I'll give you the materials you need!!! Tell 'em you were sent by Joe ;)
