|U.C.M. STUDENT PARTICIPATION|
Bra Couture K.C. is a fashion show put on every year to help spread the awareness of breast cancer. Art bra donations are accepted and auctioned off at the show. The proceeds go to help uninsured and under insured breast cancer patients. All donated bras, that are selected by a panel of judges, are modeled by surviving breast cancer patients in the show. UCM students and staff were asked to join the cause in 2014. From then on a number of students have made and donated art bras (myself included).
