Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Bra Sponsorship?
When you sign up for a Bra Sponsorship, you will be given a bra to decorate which will be auctioned off during the Bras for the Cause event.

Who can be a Bra Sponsor?
Anyone!  An individual or a company can be a Bra Sponsor.   It can be decorated by one person or a group.  Have fun with it!

Are there any guidelines for a theme?
Not really, other than keeping it family friendly.  The possibilities are endless.  Your bra can be simple or complex, dramatic or whimsical, and decorated or designed.  Pick a theme or something that inspires you and use whatever materials you see fit.

Is there a deadline for the themes?
Yes.  Just let us know by Friday, September 22nd, what your theme is going to be so we can prepare the perfect song for the runway and pair it with an auction basket.  This will also allow proper advertisement in the event program.  Themes can be emailed to Amy Montanye at amy@akeytoyourhome.com.

Are there any specific instructions on making/decorating the bra?
Yes.

  1.  No front closure bras – one is provided for you.
  2. Please firmly attach thick ribbons, string or something similar to the hooks so it can be tied on the models.  (We prefer you use a sewing machine as glue and other adhesives may not hold.)
  3. Please test all accessories to make sure they will work properly.  If instructions are needed, please print them for us and return with the bra.  You will not be able to go backstage.
