Last Thursday I had the pleasure of combining my two loves – working with brides and volunteering for a worthy cause at the fund raising event “Brides Against Breast Cancer” – for the granting wishes organization “Making Memories”.
This annual event serves a two fold purpose. It gives blushing-brides-to-be a chance to find the dress of their dreams at an amazing savings, while making wishes and dreams come true for women and men who are losing their fight against breast cancer.
Gowns are donated by bridal shops, designers, manufactures and individuals alike. Proceeds from this sales event help to bring moments of joy into the life of someone for who a cure is too late.
Hats off to the Making Memories Foundation and others like it, and to the brides-to-be such as Danae and Parisa, who I met while volunteering, who thought it not robbery to make a piece of their day count in the life of another.
