Then mark your calendars for Brides Against Breast Cancer’s Reston event Sheraton Reston Hotel, 11810 Sunrise Valley Dr.
Brides Against Breast Cancer is a Florida-based non-profit that travels the country to sell new and gently used bridal gowns to raise money to help support cancer patients through the Health Support Network.
The trunk show brings to town a roomful of gowns (sizes 4 to 20) in the $75-$1,800 range. The average gown price is $600, the organization says.
Have a wedding dress you would like to donate? Brides Against Breast Cancer is asking recent brides, bridal shops and designers to “pay it forward” by donating your gowns. You will receive a tax deduction letter for your gown donation.
Their goal this year is to receive 5,000 gowns, which would allow Brides Against Breast Cancer to provide 40,000 hours of free cancer support services to those in need. Visit Brides Against Breast Cancer online to find out how.
