Wedding Gowns Starting at $49 & Going to Charity?!

What a wonderful event. I had to re-post and share. As someone who has lost friends and family to cancer and understand that the wedding dress I considered getting was $5,000 but settled on one for less than $1,000, this would make someone's special day incredibly amazing and while supporting a fantastic cause. Kudos to East Bay Bridal.



Women Helping Women Make A Difference...
"A Match Made in Heaven in the midst of Wedding Gowns"
A PARTNERSHIP WITH WOMEN'S CANCER RESOURCE CENTER 
(PLEASANTON, CALIFORNIA) 
Weddings are a special time in women's lives and so is the wedding gown. However for many, the purchase of a wedding gown can be costly and exorbitant. Fortunately, there is now a solution that also helps women cancer patients throughout the East Bay! 
Norcal Media's East Bay Bridal is a publication that has become the "GO TO" guide for brides-to-be and this year they are proud to partner with the Women's Cancer Resource Center (wcrc.org), an organization which provides free cancer services to women throughout the East Bay. This Charity Wedding Gown Sale/Bridal Fair will offer brides-to-be the opportunity to purchase from hundreds of wedding gowns starting at $49, while at the same time helping the Cancer Center. 100% of the proceeds from the Gown Sale will be donated back to the Women's Cancer Center. 
If you've already said your 'I dos' and are wondering what to do with your dress... consider donating it to this worthwhile event.  By donating your dress, your donation will ensure: appropriate care and cancer treatment, emergency financial assistance, cancer support groups, and in-home services.  
If you are interested in attending the Gown Sale/Bridal Fair, the event is being held at the Pleasanton Doubletree (formerly the Pleasanton Hilton at the Club) on Sunday, October 12th from 11-4pm. Tickets are only $15 in advance or $20 at the door.
