BABC Gown Sale and Bridal Expo

Brides get the opportunity to shop for their dream-wedding gown at a discounted price, all while supporting a great cause. Learn more on how you can make a difference by providing free support programs to cancer patients.

LogoSo much stress comes into play when planning a wedding; the cake, the venue, and finding the perfect dress. Think about the genuinely great feeling you get when you help others and imagine having that feeling by buying your wedding dress.

 

With the help of Brides Against Breast Cancer you not only get the dress of your dreams but also help give back to cancer patients in need. “80% of proceeds raised through our nationwide tour contributes to these programs,” says show manager Katie Posivak.

 

What exactly is Brides Against Breast Cancer? Posivak explains, “Brides Against Breast Cancer is a non-profit organization whose funds contribute to programs and services for cancer patients and their families. Our outreach and educational efforts during our Nationwide Tour of Gowns bridal shows around the country help ensure that people impacted by cancer have the resources and information they need in their battle with cancer.”

 

BABC travels all across the United States and holds a number of bridal shows. Up to 120 cities were visited in 2013 selling donated gowns and a number of bridal accessories. “Gowns are donated from designers, manufacturers, local bridal boutiques in the cities we visit as well as former brides.” Katie also tells us that Gown donations are gladly accepted at each show.

 

Each show attracts up to 200-300 people. They average selling around 18 gowns per show with gowns ranging from 25% to 85% off their original price.

 

BABC hopes to reach up to 150 cities in 2014. Cities in Ohio include Dayton, Cincinnati and Columbus. The next show will be Friday, January 24 from 6pm to 9:30pm and Saturday, January 25 from 10am-5pm in Dayton, OH at the Hilton Garden Inn.
