Bra Decorating Contest at the Virginia Elks Fall Convention
Breast Cancer is serious business, so we are fighting back with increasing awareness and having some imaginative (and perhaps therapeutic) fun!
Decorate a bra (new or used – any type, size or style) however you want … with rhinestones, feathers, beads, buttons, sequins, lace, cloth, ribbon……anything!
Transform any bra into a new creation. Get your creative juices flowing, but great art talent is not required.
To reserve a hospitality room ONLY, call Courtney Edelblute, Director of Sales and Marketing, at 757-321-2194, or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center, formerly known as the Virginia Marine Science Museum, is an aquarium and marine science museum located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, just south of Rudee Inlet.
The exhibits at the museum are contained in over 800,000 US gallons (3,028,000 l) of fresh and saltwater displays.
The park is where English colonists first landed in 1607. Native American canoes, Colonial settlers, 20th century schooners and modern cargo ships have navigated the park’s waterways. Its cypress swamps were a source of fresh water for merchant mariners, pirates and military ships during the War of 1812. Legend has it that Blackbeard hid in the Narrows area of the park, and interior waterways were used by Union and Confederate patrols during the Civil War.
Cape Henry Lighthouse is the first federally funded public works project of the newly formed United States government. It was authorized by George Washington and overseen by Alexander Hamilton. The Lighthouse is situated near the “First Landing” site where English settlers first set foot on their way to settle in Jamestown. Built with the same Aquia sandstone as much of Washington, D.C, the lighthouse guided sea travelers to safety for almost 100 years. The distinctive black and white striped “New” Cape Henry Lighthouse was built in 1881 but remains closed to the public.
