Brides Against Breast Cancer - having fun doing good things for others

Hundreds of beautiful gowns were available for sale last weekend at the Brides Against Breast Cancer gown sale to benefit the Making Memories Foundation. I had the opportunity to volunteer on Saturday and truly enjoyed my experience.

Some brides came alone, some with their friends, siblings, mothers or fiancees. They had countless styles, sizes and even colors to choose from. Volunteers were on hand to help them carry the heavy garments, assist them in trying them on, search for additional styles or sizes, return gowns that weren't "the one", clip them from behind to simulate tailoring and even top them off with veils, clips and other head pieces.

My favorite part of the day was the joy that everyone shared when a bride emerged from the fitting room wearing the gown that she would treasure for her wedding day! I can't wait until next years sale!
