Cr Barbara Geisler and Katherine Egan with Katherine’s ‘Bellona, Roman Goddess of War’ bra.WITH her steel warrior-style design, there is little wonder Hughenden businesswoman Katherine Egan triumphed in the battle for ‘most creative bra’ at the Flinders Discovery Centre’s Girls Night In on Friday night, October 12.
The ‘Bras for a Cause’ competition was one of the major components of the breast cancer fundraising night, which doubled as the opening of the ‘Bras for a Cause’ Exhibition at the centre.
Ms Egan’s bra, ‘Bellona, Roman Goddess of War’, was one of 22 entered in the competition, with about 60 women and young girls attending the Girls Night In to see the winners crowned.
Flinders Discovery Centre tourism development officer Sue Takacs, who also found time to design and enter her own creation, said she was “elated” at the number of women who turned up.
“It shows that a worthy cause such as breast cancer awareness and fundraising brings a community together,” she said.
“We had a target of $400 but we have exceeded this amount and are now looking at $1000.”
But the real highlight of the evening was when Ms Egan started a bidding war, asking punters how much they would pay to see her parade her winning design.
The bidding started off at $20, but when the hat finally went around, $395 was raised for the spectacle.
Ms Egan, who was also a former councillor at Flinders Shire Council, was congratulated for being such a good sport in front of the large crowd.
The exhibit will be open for a month at the Flinders Discovery Centre and residents of the Flinders Shire are welcome to visit with a donation to breast cancer.
