Join YWCA of the Greater Capital Region for the 4th Annual BraVa! Fundraiser Event!

The Arts Center of the Capital Region is partnering with YWCA of the Greater Capital Region for their 4th Annual “Brava!”, a fundraiser seeking to provide new bras to women and girls that live at YWCA-GCR and those in need in the Greater Capital Region at no cost. 
The event will feature writers from around the region and beyond who will read jury-selected poems and essays or perform songs and monologues on the subject of brassieres in their lives. The pieces will touch on the subject from many viewpoints and range from poignant to hilarious.
