Dollars For Mammograms, Inc. is a “No Cost Mammogram” program designed for Women Who Can’t Afford Them. We provide “Help for Today” and “Hope for Tomorrow” to women throughout Charlotte and South Sarasota Counties.

Dollars For Mammograms, Inc. is holding their annual “Bra-Dazzle for Breast Cancer Awareness Contest” to promote Breast Cancer Awareness in our community. It is a light-hearted way to support a serious cause! We encourage any individual to decorate a bra and to create a slogan with an appropriate theme to promote breast cancer awareness. Turn a bra into a work of art, but it must be free standing and able to be worn.

Contestants may give additional support to our “No Cost Mammogram” service, by holding their own unique fundraiser, with their decorated bra. Funds raised are tax deductible. It is not a contest entry requirement to participate, but would be appreciated.

Contest entries will be displayed and judged at our “Bra Dazzle Brunch” which will be held on February 27, 2016, at Rotonda Golf and Country Club. Your entry will be displayed with your name and slogan which will be provided by us.

The entry fee is $25 per bra entry and you may enter more than one bra. We reserve the right to auction all entries for additional funds, with the exception of the winning entries, which will be returned to you, so you may display your bra, along with your winning recognition. You need not be present to win, but you are welcome to purchase a ticket for the “Bra Dazzle Brunch.” Tickets are limited so we encourage you to purchase your ticket immediately to ensure your seat at the “Bra Dazzle Brunch”.

Bras, slogans, and funds raised will be picked up on Wednesday, February 24, 2016. Entries will be judged on their originality, creativity, use of materials, and slogan appropriate to finished bra. Entries must be original and created in a tasteful style.

Please make us your Charity of Choice and help make the “Bra-Dazzle for Breast Cancer Awareness Contest” a huge success. Proceeds are used to provide no cost mammograms to women who cannot afford them. Your participation will be greatly appreciated.

Dollars for Mammograms

A Decade of Serviceswoman

Since our inception in 2000, Dollars for Mammograms has provided thousands of women who are uninsured or unable to afford them with no-cost mammograms and, when medically necessary, no-cost diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds, stereotactic and ultrasonic needle biopsies.  Without our services, these women would not have received these expensive breast-health medical procedures.


Serving Several Communities in Southwest Florida

Dollars for Mammograms serves women who live in these Florida communities: Englewood, Grove City, Cape Haze, Rotonda West, Placida, Boca Grande, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port and Venice.


Early Detection Leads to Higher Cure Rates

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women with the exception of skin cancer.  It is the second-leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.  Florida ranks third in the nation for the number of new cases of breast cancer.  The good news is that breast cancer death rates are decreasing, largely due to early detection and newer, better treatments.  Breast cancer is curable if detected early.

Your contribution to Dollars for Mammograms can make a difference.
