Every year, we (BPW Tallahassee) organizes "Supports the Girls" to raise funds for our Breast Cancer Fund. All proceeds go to replenish the BPW Florida Breast Cancer Fund which provides a $250 grant to individuals diagnosed with breast cancer.

Event is free and open to the public (Cash bar)

Invite your friends & colleagues to join us for the 3rd Annual Breast Cancer Walk About – In partnership with women-owned businesses of Orleans @ Midtown, 5th Avenue Tap Room, and More. Vote on your favorite bra, decorated by local artists, businesses, and BPW Tallahassee members, as you visit each business for light appetizers & libations!

Tickets to vote on the bras can be purchased for $1 each at the event.

The winner will be announced at the reception to follow at 5th Avenue Tap Room from 7:30pm-10:00.
Complete with themed goodies, all bras on display, and music by our very own DJ, Amanda James (ABJames DJ).

Prior to the event, everyone is encouraged to decorate a bra. Businesses and individuals can submit decorated bras. Since our Breast Cancer Fund can't replenish itself, we ask for an entry fee to enter your decorated bras. It's an excellent way to show your "support" and to get your name out there. All types of bras are accepted for this event-big, little, padded, under wire, training, or running-and will be decorated and displayed for your consideration. The winning bra represents BPW Tallahassee at State Conference.

All proceeds go to replenish the BPW Florida Breast Cancer Fund which provides a $250 grant to individuals diagnosed with breast cancer.
