Holy smokes, you guys! I was on TV twice yesterday within a 1-hour span on two different morning shows: Northwest Cable News Network and the King 5 New Day Northwest show. My friend Heather Pearce of Heather Pearce Photography and a few other volunteers joined me to model gowns for the Brides Against Breast Cancer gown sale, which is in Snohomish (just outside Seattle!) at Belle Chapel through this Sunday. The sale is coming to over 40 cities this year and this is only the FIRST ONE! Want to know when they’ll be near you? Check out the gown sale calendar.
For your entertainment, here are the two morning show clips of us preening for charity. I’m the short-haired tall girl, in case there was any doubt. Yes, I am aware I am stupidly fidgety.
I volunteered to assist at the Brides Against Breast Cancer gown sale today and just finished my shift. I spent the day helping brides with their dresses and giving out information about Get Hitched, Give Hope. GHGH is the local charity group that I work with which raises money for the Making Memories Foundation, the same organization for which BABC fundraises. Making Memories grants wishes for Stage IV metastatic breast-cancer patients for whom the cure won’t come soon enough. A REALLY good cause.
And speaking of which, I have LOTS more news about Get Hitched, Give Hope soon to come. Tickets go on sale on August 1 and I hope you’ll join us for a fabulous party and amazing wedding details. Hell, it’s fun even if you’re already married or even single… it’s at the frikkin Four Seasons and what better excuse for a posh party do you need!
All right, I’m out for now, off to second-shoot a wedding at a location with a significant in-joke that I can’t tell anyone. Then, tomorrow we’re heading up north to visit Evergreen Gardens in Fairmont, where one of my lovely August brides will be married… and take a nice long bike ride to train for the RSVP bike race (from Seattle to Vancouver BC, 204 miles). Peace!
