DETROIT (WWJ) - Best case scenario, a woman will only wear a big poufy white dress once — so why let it go to waste?
Brides Against Breast Cancer, a national nonprofit that tours the country selling donated wedding gowns — and gives the proceeds directly to programs and services for people who are impacted by cancer — is coming to Detroit.
The charity wedding gown sale happens Feb. 16 and 17 at the Westin Book Cadillac in Detroit.
Brides to be will enjoy up to 85 percent off the original retail price of the gowns and accessories and charities will benefit from a surge of funds — it’s a win-win. All proceeds provide education, information, & outreach to people impacted by cancer.
It all begins at 10 a.m. Feb. 16 with a $20 VIP Pink Power Hour Reception. A free general admission sale follows from noon until 5 p.m. The event picks up again on Sunday, from noon until 5 p.m. Note the VIP fee is tax-deductible.
“Be among the first brides in the Detroit area to browse through hundreds and hundreds of exquisite name brand and designer wedding gowns while meeting the top vendors in the wedding industry,” a spokesman for the event said.
Hundreds of designer, couture, and gently used gowns available ranging from $99 to $4,000, all styles in sizes 0-30. Layaway is available with up to 12 month payment terms.
For high rollers, a selection of exclusive designer and couture gowns valued up to $20,000 are also available at an incredible 25 percent to 85 percent savings. Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and debit cards will be accepted.
