The Brides Against Breast Cancer Charity Gown Sale is Coming Back to Philly Next Weekend
We have good news for those of you who missed Brides Against Breast Cancer‘s Charity Gown Sale and Bridal Show when it came to town earlier this year: the fantastic event is coming back to Philly next weekend and trust us, if you have yet to find your dress for the Big Day, you’ll definitely want to grab yourself a ticket this time around.
Brides Against Breast Cancer—an organization that generates funds and provides resources for cancer patients and their families—encourages brides-to-be across the country to support their efforts through the “Nationwide Tour of Gowns,” which will set up shop at the Sonesta Hotel Philadelphia on October 10 and 11. During this two-day event, you’ll have the opportunity to shop a huge selection of amazingly priced wedding dresses (which are donated by designers, manufacturers, bridal salons, and former brides, too) all while raising money for a great cause.
The gowns you’ll find here range in size from 4 to 18 and in price from $900 to $3, 900. With every purchase, you’ll receive a gift certificate for two wedding bands from JVL Jewelry (a $600 value) and just for attending the event, you’ll also get a voucher for a free Acrylic Glass Impression from Symbolize It.
As for the actual event, it consists of two parts: On Friday, October 10 from 6-9:30pm, there will be a VIP Event (which costs $40 for both you and a guest) where brides-to-be can enjoy snacks, signature drinks, entertainment, and giveaways while getting first dibs on all of the pretty dresses. Then on Saturday, October 11 from 11am-5pm, is when they’ll hold the general admission sale, which costs $5 per ticket or $7 at the door.
You can purchase your tickets and even volunteer to help out at the event here.
