It's not everyday you see guys in women's underwear, but when you do, you must be having a good time. 

Zeta Tau Alpha sorority hosted "Bras for a Cause" at the Russell House on Tuesday night, in honor of the 26th annual Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Hundreds packed into the ballroom to see guys strut their stuff as they took off their shirts and sported bras designed by different sororities.

The event was more than just a crazy dance competition for some contestants.

"My mom's had a couple of battles with cancer, this whole thing is for the educations awareness.  Whatever little bit I can do to support it, the better," said contestant Christopher Mears.

Mears's comments were echoed by another contestant, too.

"One of my aunts had breast cancer, so if I can help out whatever way I can just to support her and everyone who's had breast cancer," said Derek Passenant.

Event coordinator Cate Simmons said the night was to raise awareness of the disease, one bra at a time.

"Think Pink Week means a lot to me.  My mom is a five year breast cancer survivor, so it just means a lot to get the word out, early detection really does save lives," said Simmons.

The audience voted for their favorite contestant by putting money and pink Yoplait yogurt lids in buckets.  Zach Holt was crowned Mr. Think Pink Week.

Saturday's football game will be a Think Pink game.  Fans can show their support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink.
