Nanticoke Health Services will hold its annual “Bling the Bra” fundraising contest in October to promote breast cancer awareness and raise funds for the Nanticoke Breast Cancer Fund.

The fund helps pay for mammography screenings for women in Western Sussex County who are uninsured, underinsured or unable to meet co-payment requirements.

Throughout the month, “blinged-out” bra entries will be on display in the hallway next to the emergency room in the hospital. Entries are submitted by Nanticoke Health Services employees, physicians, volunteers, clinical students and local businesses.

Voting will open Sept. 27 in-person and Oct. 1 online, and will close at 4 p.m. Nov. 2. During the voting period, all are encouraged to vote for their favorite entries with monetary donations either in the box by their favorite entry or online. The top three entries to raise the most donations will be announced as winners at an awards ceremony at 3:30 p.m. Nov. 6.
