The V.I.P. Experience

During the V.I.P. experience before the event, you’ll have exclusive access to artwork, work-of-art bras, the Diamond Bra and special auction items only available in the VIP Party space. Guests will get to mingle with team members from Sporting KC, KC Chiefs and other local celebrities, plus meet and enjoy food by celebrity chefs from Kansas City Original restaurants.

The Runway Show and Auction

The “Top 12″ couture designed bras are modeled live on the runway are auctioned live by George Nigro. Every couture design comes with an amazing package that includes such things as trips, jewelry, a KC night out, etc.

The mission of Bra Couture® KC is to provide life-empowering services to uninsured and underinsured individuals in the greater Kansas City area who have been touched by all cancers.

For 2022 we are doing something different; we are not having an Art Walk but a Diamond Walk and within that Diamond Walk we will have limited artwork that will be juried by a team of art judges and selected for the event night.

We will feature models from previous years with five local attraction/trip packages that will be silent auction items for bid…..watch here for what those packages will be as we complete them for 2022.

If you have items that you can donate for the model packages, such as restaurant vouchers, hotel stays, condos, or anything fun, please refer to the Event Donations page.

Volunteer on a Committee or at The Event

Bra Couture® KC volunteers come from all walks of life; however, they all share a common passion to improve the lives of others.

Many of us are breast cancer survivors or have been personally touched by the strength and courage demonstrated by a loved one through their battle with cancer.

If you share our passion, there are many ways to get involved – to make a real difference.

To volunteer, please call Sarah Murphy at 816-490-2771 or email Sarah at shvmurphy@yahoo.com to volunteer for the event. Click here for the SignUp Genius link for volunteer opportunities.
