When I started my business, I did it with the motivation that what I was creating would matter to people… another way I chose to make a difference was by contacting the founders of Get Hitched, Give Hope— Seattle’s premiere bridal giving event– and asking them how I could help. I’m so proud and pleased to be a part of their 2010 committee!
Get Hitched, Give Hope is a big party sponsored by and featuring Seattle’s finest wedding vendors, all of whom have donated their time and wares to help raise money for the families of women and men with Stage IV breast cancer. The evening features fabulous cocktails, appetizers, shopping, live entertainment, and a chance to mingle with the best and brightest local wedding pros. The coup de gras is a live auction at which we sell off generously donated gorgeous wedding goods at amazingly low prices… and all of the proceeds go toward the Making Memories Foundations. Making Memories then uses your donations to enable end-stage cancer patients and their families to spend some time (and money) not thinking about treatment and take a final trip together. It’s sort of like “Make a Wish” for adults.
So if you’re planning a wedding and would like to get incredible deals on what you want, all while giving back to those in need… Mark your calendars!!
The third annual Get Hitched, Give Hope will take place on October 28, 2010 at the Seattle Four Seasons Hotel.
