What better supports women than bras? The Soroptimist of Greater North Kitsap is hosting their annual fundraiser for various organizations aimed at helping women and children in the area, by auctioning off very unique hosiery.

Each year, artists and businesses put their creativity to work and decorate “bras,” which are auctioned to the highest bidder on May 12. Some of the unique entries this year include a copper floral bra by Poulsbo artist Catherine Foster, and a bra made of recycled metal parts (think of a frying pan).

The silent and live auction will also feature dinner and a no-host bar, at the Silverdale Beach Hotel, 3073 NW Bucklin Hill Road, beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets are $50, and the organizers’ goal is to raise $45,000 this year.

Last year, Bras for a Cause helped Soroptimists donate to: Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build project, Hospice of Greater North Kitsap, the Kathleen Sutton Foundation, Martha & Mary’s Children’s Services, and Fishline, ShareNet and Central Kitsap food banks, among many others,The NK Soroptimist membership meets the first and third Wednesday every month at 11:30 a.m. at Stella’s Restaurant in Poulsbo.
