The local Celtic Club is once again sponsoring the “Bras Across the Crooked River” event for September 10th in downtown Kent.
This event is a bra donation drive to benefit the American Cancer Society & Honorary Chairperson Lee Runkle, and eight year breast cancer survivor.
To participate, all you have to do is donate a new or gently used bra to be hung on the Main Street Bridge in downtown Kent. After the event, the bras will be given to victims of natural disasters and battered woman’s shelters.
Last year’s event led to the collection of 2,000 bras that were donated.
The donation points in Kent include:
Kent Sate Student Recreation and Wellness Center, 1550 Ted Boyd Drive
Kent State Student Center, Summit Street
The Arctic Squirrel, 1648 E. Main Street
Kent Area Chamber of Commerce, 138 E. Main Street
