Is your wedding gown hanging in the closet or taking up space underneath your bed? Find a home for your beloved gown and support a worthy cause at the same time! Throughout the month of March, whiteCHICAGO is dedicating the month to collecting gowns for donation to Brides Against Breast Cancer.
For the “dress drive,”WhiteXchange and Brides Against Breast Cancer are in need of contemporary style gowns, slips and veils that are less than 7 years old. Also, a copy of a tag or a receipt is helpful, as this will assist in pricing the dress and/or accessory for resale. Due to the extensive inventory of vintage, antique and retro gowns, we ask that you withhold your contribution of dresses that were designed prior to the year 2003.
You can bring your donations directly to the White Chicago store at 222 W. Huron. Usually, you have to mail the dresses directly to Brides Against Breast Cancer, so this is a great way to make your donation.
A non-for-profit organization, Brides Against Breast Cancer is hosting its annual gown sale at the Wyndham Chicago Hotel, April 2nd & 3rd. The proceeds enable Making Memories to grant wishes to terminally–ill breast cancer patients. Over the past three years, whiteCHICAGO and their brides have donated 200 wedding gowns, worth $575,000, to Brides Against Breast Cancer and hope to double that amount this year.
