Brides (and Wedding Planners) Against Breast Cancer!
This weekend the Making Memories organization is putting on their annual Brides Against Breast Cancer gown sale event. This is a chance for brides-to-be to purchase beautiful gowns at a very discounted price. Some are new gowns donated by designers and some are used gowns donated by brides, but either way, they all are gorgeous. The best part is, this organization uses the proceeds to grant wishes for those who are losing the battle against breast cancer. Breast cancer affects so many people... it seems like everywhere you turn people have a friend, co-worker, or family member who has gone through or is going through this terrible disease. As I am typing this, I have an acquaintance who is in her 30's and is currently going through treatment for stage 3 breast cancer.
If you know someone looking for a bridal gown, spread the word about this great event so we can help this wonderful organization. This year's gown sale will be taking place at the Howard Johnson Plaza hotel Thursday-Saturday. It will be my 2nd year volunteering during the gown sale so I can tell you from firsthand experience that this really is a fabulous event. I will be volunteering on Friday in case you want to stop in and see me. Here is the flyer for the event, or you can click here to go to Making Memories' website:
And here is our lovely bride Meagan (whose wedding and rehearsal dinner photos can be seen in some of our previous blog entries). Meagan bought her dress at last year's Brides Against Breast Cancer gown sale event - and I actually met her there for the first time! I got to witness the tears and excitement as Meagan found her dream dress, along with many other women who really made a difference that day by helping out this cause.
