Bra Artz win­ner a ‘‘pi­rate trea­sure’’

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS - RICHARD MAYS

Win­ner of the fourth Heart­land Lions Bra Artz com­pe­ti­tion at this year’s Manawatu Home Show had no idea there was a prize.

Bai­nesse’s Chris­tine Siebe­link took out the Breast in Show and the over­all pub­lic vote with her buc­ca­neer-themed ‘‘Trea­sure Your Chest’’.

‘‘I thought it was just to raise money for breast cancer. I didn’t en­ter to win any prizes.‘‘

Her en­try was be­decked with jewellery, neck­laces, beads and fake money.

‘‘I hot glued crowns, a tele­scope and all sorts of bits and pieces to it.’’

Heart­land Lions Wendy Mccrae said the re­sponse to the fourth Bra Artz was the best so far.

‘‘We had a grand to­tal of 91 en­tries. The money we raised, $2313, will be go­ing to the Manawatu Cancer Society.’’
