Island 106's Bra-nument
October 6, 2009 at 3:33 PM (PT)
Big ups to MAGIC Top 40 WILN (ISLAND 106)/PANAMA CITY, FL as the station collected over 7,000 bras from local listeners for the station's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.
“This is the 2nd year that we’ve done Bras Over Bay”, says PD CHRIS ALAN. "Last year we had about 3500 donated bras and I can’t believe we doubled it this year! Team leader HOLLY O'CONNOR, made the first attempt to raise the bra-nument, only to find the weight was so much that it snapped the chains! We hit up HOME DEPOT for a heavier chain link and the 2nd time was a success! We actually had women pull up as we were assembling this massive structure and donate the bras they were wearing!”
