Betty Boop - through the artistry of Karin Kneitel - garnered $1000 at an auction in support of breast cancer awareness! Karin created the bra, pictured on the left, and entitled it Betty's Boobs for a Cure.
In case you’re just catching up with this:
In September 2014, Karin Kneitel, one of Max Fleischer’s great-granddaughters, created an incredible Betty Boop bra as part of the breast cancer awareness contest “Cups for a Cure” sponsored by her employer PSEG. She made the bra in honor of her mother, who died from breast cancer.
Out of 200 entries, Karin’s entry was one of a handful selected and she won second place!
The Betty bra went on to be part of an auction at the Creative Cups event held in support of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program. It was also featured on New York’s NBC Weekend Today in New York with Pat Battle on February 22, 2015.
