Brides Against Breast Cancer Kicks Off Nationwide TourThe Breast Cancer Site
The Brides Against Breast Cancer organization is touring the nation to raise money for breast cancer patients and their families. The group kicked off the Nationwide Tour of Gowns in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area on Jan. 12 at The Bridal Experience show. The charity event sold discounted gowns, which were donated from high-end retailers and manufacturers.
According to the Times Online, the dress prices ranged from $99 to $4,000. The show was hosted at The Fez banquet hall in Hopewell Township, Pa., and 80 percent of the proceeds will go toward supporting breast cancer patients.
"The cause is great," Marianne Maloney, a shopper at the bridal show, told the source. "There are a lot of beautiful options."
The nationwide tour has many stops on its schedule. Next, the group will be in Dallas, Cleveland and San Francisco. Women have the opportunity to donate their dress to support the organization and help fund wellness and educational services for those who have been touched by breast cancer. Additionally, Brides Against Breast Cancer is seeking volunteers to help patients and assist caregivers.
