The national nonprofit Brides Against Breast Cancer will make a “tour stop” in Phoenix next Saturday, August 29. BABC collects gently used (still in good condition) wedding gowns and then tours the country selling them to brides on a budget. The proceeds go directly toward programs and services for people who are impacted by cancer, from sufferers and survivors to caregivers and medical staff.
The Phoenix charity bridal show will be held at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa and will feature dresses ranging in price from $75-$1,800 (average price: $600), wedding vendors, giveaways, swag bags for the first 75 brides-to-be and a Boutique Style Experience for all brides who purchase a dress. Bonus: Brides and guests will all receive a free picture certificate for an acrylic glass impression from Symbolize It ($200 value).
