CHESAPEAKE-225 bras were created for this year's Bra-ha-ha® competition for Chesapeake Regional Health Foundation.  

Men, women and children decorated a size 38-C bra to raise awareness, celebrate life and honor friends, family and loved ones impacted by breast cancer.

Officials say funds from Bra-ha-ha® have helped deliver more than 500 mammograms to women in need in Hampton Roads, and have saved the lives of at least 15 people whose cancer may have otherwise gone undetected.

Bras are unveiled at the annual Bra-ha-ha® Awards Show and Auction, a fashion show style celebration and competition, and then put on display at the Bra-ha-ha® exhibit , a free and public art show that enables community members to view the bras at a local mall. The Awards Show and Auction is September 27 at the Chesapeake Conference Center.

13News Now at Daybreak anchor Vanessa Coria was one of the judges.
