Making a Difference One Dress at a Time
Ethereal Events has teamed up with Luxe Bride for a Fashion and Bridal Show benefiting Bride's Against Breast Cancer. This is an organizations who's mission is grant wishes to men and women losing their battle against breast cancer. They do such amazing work for people in need. This statement from their website tells all:
"It is the driving force of our Foundation to make a wish come true for these brave fighters. The wishes and memory-making events we bestow, allows the individual and their family the opportunity to put aside the realities of this illness, if only for a time, while basking in the joy of one another's presence. Our sincere desire is for every terminally ill breast cancer patient to pass from this world, comforted in the knowledge of having left one final beautiful memory for his or her family."
I have never personally been touch by breast cancer, but cancer has had an effect on my life, and the people I love. I would like to work towards a world where breast or any other cancer is obsolete.
I was presented with the opportunity to help with this amazing event, by the owner of Luxe Bride, Lindsay. She has volunteered with the Pink Envelope in the past, and is a strong supporter of many charities. I jumped at the chance to give as much of my time, knowledge, and skill, to create this event. The fashion show will raise money to help grant wishes of the many women and men and their families suffering. We will also collect bridal gowns to donate. The dresses will be resold in Brides Against Breast Cancer events to to grant more wishes.
I will have more information on the exciting event, and how to get involved over the next few weeks! Stay tuned.
