Chesapeake Regional’s Bra-ha-ha is



The Bra-ha-ha is an artistic competition in which contestants decorate bras to help support the Chesapeake Regional Medical Center's state-of-the-art Breast Center. To celebrate the 4th year of the competition, the Bra-ha-ha gala committee, chaired by Shirley Forbes, created a spectacular red carpet awards show and auction held at the Chesapeake Conference Center to announce this year's winners. With more than 600 people in attendance, the event helped to raise nearly $150,000 to help underprivileged women receive mammograms.
