Ellie's Bridal Boutique was proud to ring in the New Year in support Brides Against Breast Cancer and the national "Tour of Gowns." Our very own Ellie's consultant, Jennifer, volunteered for the event at the Arlington Hyatt Hotel, trekking along over a dozen Ellie's Bridal donated gowns, veils, and accessories with her.
Thanks to all the wonderful DC brides that attended, the Brides Against Breast Cancer event was a huge success! Together, you raised over $20,000- all of which will help women and their families dealing with breast cancer. Brides-to-be were able to browse through hundreds of generously donated designer and couture gowns and enjoy exciting giveaways. Special thanks to Gateau Distinctive Cakes for keeping everyone's blood sugar elevated with the delicious lemon cake with pineapple buttercream! And the Arlington Hyatt for the champagne!
If you are bummed that you missed out on the event, have no fear! Brides Against Breast will soon appear in Baltimore! Mark your calendar and buy your tickets now for the February 8-9 event. Ticket and gown sales from the national tour will enable Brides Against Breast Cancer to contribute millions of dollars toward breast cancer education, self-exam pamphlets, screening, support groups, counseling services, and many other programs to aid women and their families dealing with breast cancer.
Congratulations, once again, to all of the brides who found their dress at the Brides Against Breast Cancer DC event. Our team is looking forward to assisting many of you with alterations to make your dream dress a perfect fit.
