I'd like to take a second and shine some light on an upcoming event that really warms my heart. I was immediately on board when Eliza e-mailed me today and asked me to share the news with all of you. Please take a second to read what six lovely Seattle vendors have come up with in an effort to give back and help out:
"On October 23rd, six Seattle wedding vendors are hosting Get Hitched, Give Hope at the Dome Room in the Arctic Club Hotel of Seattle. We're hoping to raise $50,000 for Brides Against Breast Cancer/Making Memories, a not-for-profit that grants wishes to women with metastatic breast cancer. This charity grants women wishes at a time in their lives when they are overwhelmed by bills and doctors appointments. It's a way to give them something to look forward to, like a once-in-a-lifetime trip-- at an incredibly difficult time in their lives. We're hoping to raise enough money to grant 12 wishes.
The way we're going to do this is by throwing a fun swanky cocktail party for brides (and their friends and moms!) which will include a silent auction of items generously donated by 30 of Seattle's best wedding vendors. Brides and grooms will have the opportunity to bid on things they need for their wedding, and know that the money they're spending is going to a great cause. Auction items include things like: Bridal flowers for 14…6 sessions with a personal trainer…a 3-tiered Italian buttercream cake…6 hours of wedding day photography…DJ services and more.
Brides interested in attending can purchase tickets at http://www.gethitchedgivehope.com/tickets.html, or you can use that same link to donate to our cause.
We hope you can join us for a fresh, new event that celebrates our industry, women, and the fabulous spirit of giving!"
