Southern Garden Party Benefits Women Fighting Breast Cancer

Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation's Bra-ha-ha raises money to provide mammograms and related breast health services to eligible uninsured and underinsured individuals. A southern garden party was held at the home of the Bra-ha-ha Committee Chair Shirley Forbes and her husband Congressman Randy Forbes. The Men in Pink began last year and has grown to 35 men this year. These men have come out in support of breast cancer research and are raising money and awareness for the Bra-ha-ha. The 2015 Bra-ha-ha will be held on September 25th at 6:30 pm at the Chesapeake Conference Center and will feature beautifully decorated bras along with an auction and awards show. Tickets may be purchased at
