Bratini - FUN Fundraiser for Women's Council of REALTORS and ARTBREAKERS

BRATINI - Cancer & WCR Fundraiser in St. Augustine, FL

I am so proud to be a member of the St. Augustine Regional Chapter of the Women's Council of REALTORS (WCR). The friendship and support I have received from this professional organization is immeasurable. The chapter provides education assistance to encourage members to enhance their knowledge in the real estate business. Additionally, the chapter builds leaders in the community and assists the chapter's leadership in attending local, regional, state (Florida Association of REALTORS), and national (National Association of REALTORS) conferences.

Now the chapter has come up with a fun fundraiser---Bratini. It combines support for breast cancer along with support for the local WCR chapter. The event will be held October 23rd at Serenata Beach Club in South Ponte Vedra, Florida from 5:00-7:30 p.m. Heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served while watching men model decorated bras and enjoying $5 Martinis. The public is invited. Below is the flyer if you'd like to get involved.


Art Breakers -Artists for the fight against cancer, is a non-profit based in St. Johns County and the money raised stays in the county. Please read more about this wonderful group. We are so excited to be working with them.

There are other events around the country that raise money for breast cancer featuring the auctioning of bras such as we will be doing, but I think our chapter is unique in having men model them and combining it with Martinis. See how much fun this will be? I can hear you now: one Martini, Two Martini, Three Martini-FLOOR. We have such a wonderful group of men that have agreed to be models for this event.

 I'll post pictures after the event. Should be fun(ny). And it's for a great cause.
