Ladies create bra-sterpieces to auction Breast Cancer Fund

A group of ladies created bra masterpieces, "bra-sterpieces," all for a good cause.

The ladies took part in the Painted Bra Art Project.

They painted bras at the senior center in Madison.

The masterpieces will be auctioned to raise money for the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund.

The goal is also to raise awareness about breast cancer and prevention.

"What's a better way than painting a bra to keep people aware and make sure the men and women do their breast exams on a monthly basis and they get their annual mammograms as required," said Anna Braden with the Painted Bra Art Project.

Last year, they raised about $10,000.

The money is used to buy new equipment to help with early detection.
