Ballroom BRA Charity Event

Stones River Country Club - 1800 Medical Center Parkway, Murfreesboro

BRA Day was launched in 2011 by Dr. Mitchell Brown, a plastic surgeon with a practice in Toronto. It was created to “Close the Loop on Breast Cancer”. The goal of BRA Day is to promote education, awareness and access for women who may wish to consider post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. Locally, we are VERY fortunate to have Dr. Nick and Adrienne Tarola as members of our community who have invested themselves into making sure these difficulties are few and far between for local residents.

As a part of their efforts, they have created a local initiative, Ballroom BRA, as a way to help raise funds to aid in the education, awareness, and access.  Recently, they have taken that a step further and even developed their own philanthropy, Reconstructing HOPE, a nonprofit agency working solely for the purpose of assisting those in need of any reconstructive surgery.

This event features a ballroom dance competition of several fabulous and local faces benefiting a phenomenal cause, National Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day. Many women who have undergone mastectomies are not aware of the options available to them. BRA Day USA is working to change that. The Ballroom BRA is an opportunity to make a difference right here in Rutherford County.
