TUNICA, MS (WMC) -

A very special fashion show at Horseshoe Tunica raised more than $95,000 for the American Cancer Society on Friday, October 28.

The Battle of the Bras, a lively and always entertaining fundraiser, featured professional football player and former University of Memphis Tiger, DeAngelo Williams.

Professional wrestler and radio personality Dustin Starr along with several other local male celebrities and casino executives all joined in, modeling extravagantly decorated bras during Breast Cancer Awareness month. Funds were raised through contributions from votes for bras, silent and live auctions, as well as general donations.
