Get Hitched Give Hope Wrap Up!
The room: spectacular. The fashions: stunning. The food: delectable. The auction items: must-have. The cause: worthy. The goal: shattered.
On October 28th, 2010 over 500 brides, grooms, and members of the wedding community gathered at the impeccable Four Seasons Hotel Seattle to come together for two reasons: to get amazing deals on gorgeous wedding goods and services and to raise money to grant wishes for Stage IV metastatic breast cancer patients. Here at Get Hitched Give Hope we’ve always set our sights high and our goals just beyond reach, but this year, with the help of some amazing sponsors and wonderful guests we’ve exceeded this goal. By the end of the evening, YOU came together to raise $64,000 to grant wishes for those to whom the cure can’t come soon enough. And we’re still counting.
A few fun facts:
- Over 500 attendees
- Over 100 sponsors
- Over 80 raffle prizes and auction packages
- The biggest shopper spent $4,105
- The highest live auction item was the gorgeous Tiffany Necklace that went for $2,200
- Brides got GREAT deals on wedding services and products, even up to 65% off of the retail value through the silent auction!
