Bras Around The Building – Friday October 26, 2018 – 8am!

Some of our members will be attending the 8th Annual Bras Around The Building Event, organized by Energy 99.7 and Country 105, in partnership with Merrett Home Hardware Building Centre.  With help from Peterborough Fire Services, collected bras will be strung together around the exterior of the Energy 99.7/Country 105 building located at 59 George St North in Peterborough, as a symbol of support for women battling breast cancer, to honour survivors and to remember those who have lost their battle.
