7th Annual BraTini: Celebration for the Cause
Saluting Hometown Heroes
(DAYTONA BEACH, FL —September 22, 2017) – Who’s your go-to hero? Following Hurricane Irma, many Volusia and Flagler residents might say “linemen” or “firefighters.” This year, REALTORS® Sold 4 the Cause is saluting those superstars, and many other Hometown Heroes, at the 7th Annual “Bra-Tini: Celebration for the Cause” on Tuesday, October 10 at the Hilton Daytona Beach Oceanfront Resort.
Presented by REALTORS® Sold 4 the Cause, one of Florida’s top fundraising teams in the 2016 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk of Volusia/Flagler, BraTini has become the group’s signature event, raising more than $35,000 last year and generating the most creative and whimsically-designed bras anywhere!
In addition to the live auction with auctioneer Eric Alexander of Exit Beach Realty, this year’s “Bratini – Celebration for the Cause” features a Photo Booth where attendees can pose for snapshots with a variety of pink accessories, and browse the incredible silent auction for jewelry, art, vacation stays, and gift baskets. One hundred percent of the proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society.
Real local heroes who touch our lives every day will receive a special salute on stage to kick off the festivities. This year’s live auction will feature local celebrities, including Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood, Morning Show Radio Personalities Frank Scott of WROD, Dallas Reese of 93.1 Coast Country(WKRO) and 95.7 The HOG(WHOG); and Jim Jaworski and Sheldon of the Daytona Tortugas. They will be joined on the runway by Arnold Kolozvari of Revive Fitness and real estate rock stars Dino Dodani (Keller Williams), Ali Kargar (ICI Homes), Alex Bitner (Adams Cameron), and Addam Ralston (Realty Pros). The models will don uniquely designed bras representing every day heroes, including a lineman, doctor, nurse, teacher, EMT, policeman, firefighter, lifeguard, sheriff, roadside rescue, and a volunteer. This year’s bras were designed by the creative team of Jane Sciortino (Keller Williams), Bonni Davis (HIG Insurance), Jo Eastham (Sewing by JoJo), Ellen Needham (Realty Pros Assured) and Tara Warnock (Watson Realty). Music is provided by DJ Justin with Just Dance Entertainment
Winning bids in the live auction will walk away with more than just a uniquely designed bra, including hotel stays, gift cards and more!
