We love hearing about wedding businesses and vendors who give back to the community, and today we want to feature a very special organization, Brides Against Breast Cancer in Atlanta, GA. This organization recently came into our lives because of our affiliation with Bridal Ball (more details on that below).
Brides Against Breast Cancer (“BABC”) formed in 1997 as a charity and has since helped thousands of women buy affordable, pre-owned wedding gowns and has donated millions to cancer-related charities. For the past 20 years, BABC has been touring across America, hosting bridal shows that have helped those impacted by cancer, one dress at a time.
In late 2016, BABC was relaunched from Atlanta under new ownership and management. They formed as a social enterprise company with national charity partners, and they support breast cancer causes nationwide due to their partnership with Living Beyond Breast Cancer. BABC also has a partnership with Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund, which is one of the biggest and most active breast cancer charities in the state of Georgia.
If you are a former bride wishing to donate a wedding dress to this wonderful cause, the process is quite simple. Just mail them your gown to the address provided and complete the web form on their website. That’s it! They do request gowns that are less than 5 years old and that are in good condition. They also accept veils, tiaras and other wedding accessories.
Get your ticket the Bridal Ball & Brides Against Breast Cancer Wedding Showcase of the Intercontinental Buckhead on July 16th here! We’ll be there and would love to see YOU there too!
