The Brazarre is an annual event benefiting the American Cancer Society. Since 2011, Brazarre founder Vicki Eaker and a team of volunteers have raised money for ACS through silent and live auctions of artful brassieres, “The Brazarre Bazaar,” and generous in-kind sponsors and donors of the event.

Each year, artist Armita Pebdani, cleverly crafts a new “Brazarre Girl” from an iconic image or time and place, and it serves as inspiration for the event and the marketing of the fundraiser.
