Sponsor or design a bra for Bust of Steamboat

The Yampa Valley Breast Cancer Awareness Project is looking for local artists and sponsors for the 2005 Bust of Steamboat. Design a bra to be auctioned off Oct. 28 and help raise money for local women. All funds benefit uninsured or underinsured women of the Yampa Valley who are in need of mammograms or financial assistance for breast cancer treatment.

Sponsorships are a tax-deductible donation of $300 to the YVBCAP and include two tickets to the event. This year's event will be held at Three Peaks Grill from 5 to 8 p.m. Oct. 28. Bras will be on display in the community to raise awareness during October.

Breast cancer survivors also are needed as volunteers at Bust of Steamboat.
