THE EVENT

Bra Couture® KC Fashion Show & Auction 2023

April 21, 2023

We are excited to welcome to the runway a male stomach cancer survivor and an ovarian cancer survivor. Request for funding for both men and women with any cancer has pulled the BCKC organization to provide funds for services to these patients as well … while providing support for breast cancer will always remain our primary focus, we want to continue to move beyond the bra to provide care to any uninsured cancer patient in the greater Kansas City area. We are very proud to say, all funds raised by Bra Couture KC, stay here to care for our own. 

TIME:
6:00 p.m. VIP Experience
7:00 p.m. General Admission
8:00 p.m. Runway Show

WHERE:
Signature Flight Support 10 NW Richards Road TWA Museum at the Downtown Airport Kansas City, MO 64116

The V.I.P. Experience

During the V.I.P. experience before the event, you’ll have exclusive access to surprise auction items and the opportunity to purchase a raffle ticket for the Diamond Bra Special Trip all while enjoying live music from a local Kansas City musician. Guests will get to mingle with local sports team celebrities, KC Chiefs Ambassadors, and other local celebrities, in addition to enjoying food from Kansas City original restaurants such as Em Chamas.

The Runway Show and Auction

The “Top 14″ couture designed bras are modeled live on the runway by cancer survivors and are auctioned live by professional auctioneer, Yve Rojas. Every couture designed fashion, many by fashion designers from the Kansas City fashion community, comes with an amazing package that includes such things as trips, jewelry, a KC night out, etc.

Our 2023 Crystal Walk will feature silent auction items including designer purses (one holding a surprise of $500 cash!); artwork by local artists; and sports memorabilia from the Royals, Chiefs, and University of Kansas basketball team. 

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 or click the button below.

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.
