The return from the HGTV challenge in early summer empowered Leslie to not only raise $29,000 for Susan G. Komen in less than four weeks but to embark on a larger than life awareness campaign with sculptor George Tobolowsky.
Tobolowsky, critically acclaimed co-founder of the Texas Sculpture Association, is currently building a 11ft high by 12ft wide metal bra that will debut at West Village on September 17th.
This bra, entitled Anne Girl, in honor of Leslie's family member who lost her battle with breast cancer, will mysteriously appear in a variety of metroplex venues throughout Breast Cancer Awareness Month and hopes to 'bust out' of Texas in a campaign titled You Can't Strap a Good Woman Down.
Once the nomadic strappy bra makes its appearance, the surrounding area will turn pink via paint, lights or other creative method. The goal is to raise awareness for the Susan G. Komen foundation and to help shed the limelight on the artistic movement in Dallas. Leslie, along with the Susan G. Komen, are producing a documentary film to capture the evolution of this one-of-a-kind bra structure and its Texas tour.
