WHAT: WIILD 1077 has teamed up with Brides for a Cause to host a special “DRESS DASH” event on Saturday, October 11 from 7am-11am at FivePine Lodge & Conference Center in Sisters. The “DRESS DASH” will feature more than 500 wedding dresses in sizes 0-24 all priced at just $150! This “DRESS DASH” event gives local brides in the Bend area a chance to find an affordable dress while supporting a great cause! Central Oregon area brides are encouraged to show up early to “dash” for their wedding dress, while supporting a great cause!
Proceeds from the event will support Wish Upon A Wedding to help the organization grant free weddings for couples who are faced with a terminal illness or life altering circumstance across the country. Last September, Wish Upon A Wedding granted a free wedding for an Oregon couple Heather & Chris. Since it was founded in 2010, the charity has granted more than 70 weddings for deserving couples across the country. Brides for a Cause has raised $236,000 since partnering in 2012 for Wish Upon A Wedding by re-selling donated wedding dresses at its Portland boutique and off-site road shows along the west coast. This is the first time the organization is bringing its wedding gowns to Bend!!
Already married? Wedding dress donations from 2008 and newer will be accepted during the event. Past brides are encouraged to donate their wedding dress after their wedding, not only for a tax write-off, but also to recycle their wedding dress to allow another bride to wear it, all while supporting a great cause. Volunteers are also needed at the event. For more information, please visit www.bridesforacause.com.
