Savannah, Ga., bans bra display cancer campaign

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Officials in Savannah say they do not want bras displayed on a city street — even if the goal is to raise breast cancer awareness.

City Manager Rochelle Small-Toney told council members that officials weighed the campaign with "the appropriateness of hanging underwear across one of our main streets."

The Savannah Morning News reports that local radio stations wanted residents to donate bras that would be strung across Broughton Street at four major intersections. Officials say a local car dealer had agreed to donate $1 for each bra up to $5,000.

Caroline Keller, the board president of the local chapter of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure, says similar campaigns have been held in other cities without problems.
