Bras Across the Bridge

Baptist Health Care Foundation and Pensacola Honda teamed up for the eighth annual Bras Across the Bridge event on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2017. Community members gathered along with our partners, Cumulus Media and The Grand Marlin Restaurant & Oyster Bar, at the foot of the Bob Sikes Bridge on Pensacola Beach. Breast cancer survivors, their loves ones and the community joined together to increase breast cancer awareness.

More than 300 new bras were donated by the Bras Across the Bridge participants. The bras were given to several Lakeview Center programs that provide assistance to women and girls in need, as well as Suit Yourself, a nonprofit organization of United Methodist Women at First Methodist Church in Pensacola, which furnishes free interview outfits to women in need in our community.

The Bras Across the Bridge after-party featured live music and a silent auction at The Grand Marlin.

The 2017 event raised more than $25,000. One hundred percent of the proceeds benefitted the Baptist Health Care Foundation Mammogram Fund, which provides free mammograms to women in our community who are unable to receive one on their own. To date, the program has provided free screenings to 1,899 women. As a result of these screenings, 364 women required additional testing, 47 required biopsies and 18 were diagnosed with breast cancer.

A special thank you goes out to this event’s sponsors: Pensacola Honda, Cumulus Media, The Grand Marlin Restaurant & Oyster Bar, Acumen Medical Imaging & Interventional, Cox, Fitting Designs, Gulf Power, Memphis Reprographics, Pensacola News Journal & Bella Magazine, Performance Machining Services, PPX Imaging, Inc., WEAR ABC 3 – WFGX 35 and Wind Creek Hotel & Casino - Atmore.
