Brides Against Breast Cancer (BABC), an organization which offers programs and services to cancer patients, is on its annual nationwide "Tour of Gowns," according the organization's website.
Volunteers go through donated wedding gowns at BABC's headquarters in Sarasota, Fla., and then take the dresses to bridal expos in about 120 cities each year, Fox 29 News reported. For the past 16 years, BABC has been spreading breast cancer awareness, and selling discounted designer wedding dresses to brides, with 80 percent of proceeds going toward providing free services for families affected by breast cancer, according to Fox 29 News.
"Everyone you meet has been touched by cancer ... they all have a story to share," Karen DeRitter, the BABC boutique manager, told the outlet. "I'm very blessed to hear those stories and share it with them and then to share one of the most important days with them."
"They have great options and tons of different sizes and designers," Maygan Henzie, a bride who attended an event in New Jersey, told the outlet. "It's really a great opportunity and it goes to a great cause."
"Tour of Gowns" will make it possible for Brides Against Breast Cancer to donate $2 million dollars to help cancer victims, according to its website.
