CROSBY – What an evening of entertainment was Saturday night when the most macho men in the neighborhood donned lingerie to raise money for breast cancer research.

When Don Nelson of KTRK 13 was speaking prior to the models strutting and dancing wearing bras of various types and themes one got the feeling that he was just a little embarrassed about this being his first time for being the Master of Ceremonies of Bras for the Cause.

It was a fashion show like none other that according to Shirley Rogers will contribute $25,000 to the local chapter of the American Cancer Society designated for breast cancer research and education. Gary Clifton dancing to Strawberry Fields Forever was completely psychedelic. A buffet dinner was catered by Hector’s Mexican Restaurant followed by a live auction immediately after. Chuck Richnow provided music. It was put on by the Tough Enough to Wear Pink Committee of the Crosby Fair & Rodeo.
