Susan Hanover is hosting a “Mardi Bra” wine & cheese reception at her store, Susan Hanover Designs, on Thursday February 1, from 4:00pm until 9:00pm.

The pre-Valentine’s Day event will kick off the two-week collection of new bras for those in need. The collection runs from Jan 29 to Feb 13.

During this pre-Valentine’s Day event, and through Feb 4, 20% of sales will be donated to The Undies Project.

The Undies Project urges the community to take the time to purchase a new bra, or to look in their drawers for gently used, hardly worn bras that they no longer need. There is always a shortage of bras of all sizes, but in particular sizes 34-38.

Join owner Susan Hanover friends of The Undies Project for wine & cheese, and maybe pick up a birthday gift or an early Valentine’s Day present.

“It’s such an original idea,” said Susan Hanover. “So many people donate their clothing to charity, but the Undies Project helps people who are struggling, and may not be in a position to purchase bras and underwear. The Undies Project really fills a void.”

“We’re so excited to team up with Susan Hanover for what will be a really fun evening. We can’t thank her enough for supporting the Undies Project,” said Lucy Langley, who co founded The Undies Project with Laura Delaflor.
