Last week I met and worked with an amazing organization called Brides Against Breast Cancer. What their organization is about is this: (straight from their website)
Wedding gown sales are an important fund-raising event for Brides Against Breast Cancer™. Our more than 32 yearly shows provide brides-to-be with an opportunity to find their dream gown (at an incredible savings), while contributing to services that providing support, education and hope to men and women affected by breast cancer.The worldwide support of designers, manufacturers, bridal shops and individuals (who donate a most treasured possession) make possible our Nationwide Tour of Gowns sales. The proceeds from these events contribute to programs for cancer patients and their families.“Brides Against Breast Cancer™ – Nationwide Tour of Gowns”This unique opportunity allows brides-to-be a chance to find the gown of their dreams at a remarkable price. Most gown prices range from $99 to $799*, including hundreds of beautiful new name brand and designer gowns valued up to $8,000. Exclusive designer and couture gowns valued up to $20,000 are also available at an incredible 25% to 75% savings!
REMEMBER – more than half the gowns presented during each event are NEW designer gowns that arrived directly from designers, manufacturers and bridal retailers. So, I was able to show my photography work while brides started trickling in. They were super excited to see if they could find their perfect dress for their wedding day. With so many choices and options some of the brides were literally there for hours and many did walk away with the dress of their dreams. I felt this organization was a great one to work with obviously because of the cancer support. My son battled leukemia for 2.5 years and my mother in-law is herself a 3x breast cancer survivor. It was a no brainer to help with the support of cancer. If you are looking for a dress for that special day, please check out Brides Against Breast Cancer and see if they are coming to a city near you. The money goes back to great cause and you walk away with your perfect dress!!
