Breast intentions: Hurley's art chest auction ends today

October 30, 2008 |  6:06 pm

Rage_chalke2_4 What's more stylish than a pink ribbon but shows you support the fight against breast cancer? How about a bustier that actress Sarah Chalke has hand-decorated with starfish and coral, or actor Ron Rifkin has scrawled his autograph on? To benefit Boarding for Breast Cancer, an organization dedicated to increasing awareness about breast cancer, surf apparel brand Hurley has been hosting an online auction of celebrity-adorned bustiers and T-shirts that ends today.
Some are simply signed pieces, while others are full-blown art installations that include gun holsters, wrapped leather belts, tattoo-art designs, and vintage lace.
Most of the pieces at the site are marked SOLD, but as of this posting, there are a couple cool-looking ones still in play -- including Chalke's starfish number (starting bid $125) and a red, white and blue T-shirt tricked out by U.S. Women's Soccer star Brandi Chastain (complete with signature and soccer-ball design) at a starting bid of $75, that would be the perfectly patriotic thing to wear into the voting booth Tuesday.
