Mike Irwin | Pybus hooked on bras

Decorated bra
A decorated bra, one of the largest in recent years (48HH), hangs on the Riverwalk Pedestrian Bridge during 2010's Bridge to the Cure.

We like to keep abreast of developments at Pybus Public Market, so we got a lift upon reading that the waterfront hub will host Mamm-O-Rama, a work of art made of brassieres to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

In fact, Pybus has taken the plunge to create the Northwest’s longest bra chain. Ladies will tie their bras togethers — regular bras, decorated bras, lacy see-through push-up bras (just a suggestion) — in a long chain that will be paraded around the market grounds and then suspended, chandelier style, from the building’s ceiling.

The bra chandelier “will become a distinctive work of art,” says a Pybus press release, that replaces the annual Bridge to a Cure event of prior years. That event strung hundreds of decorated bras across the Riverwalk Pedestrian Bridge in downtown Wenatchee as a fundraiser for breast cancer research.

There’s also a bra flash mob planned for one as-yet-unannounced Saturday in October. We’re hoping that won’t be a bust.

In addition to all that hulla-bra-loo, Pybus will sponsor cooking demonstrations on eating right to avoid cancer at 7 p.m. October 10, 17 and 24 at the market’s demonstration kitchen. On Oct. 9, the market will also donate a portion of its gross sales to The Wellness Place, a cancer support group for Wenatchee Valley patients and survivors. And on Oct. 25, the market will host a candle-lit ceremony honoring cancer victims, survivors, families and friends.
