BAKERSFIELD - A local fundraiser is in need of used wedding dresses.
The Brides Against Breast Cancer is a nationwide tour that contributes to programs for cancer patients and their families.
They have expanded outreach and educational efforts to bridal shows around the country to ensure that everyone impacted by cancer has the resources and information they need to battle cancer.
Wedding gowns sales are an integral part of Brides Against Breast Cancer fundraising efforts. They provide the bride-to-be with an opportunity to find their dream gown at 25-75% off retail price.
You can donate your used wedding gown for a tax deduction at The Kern County Bridal Association located at 531 H St. The dress will then be cleaned, re-beaded and repaired in any way and then offered for sale at the event.
The Charity Wedding Gown Sale will be held October 19-20 at the Four Points by Sheraton at 5101 California Ave.
There will be thousands of dresses available for purchase at the event, ranging from $99 to $50,000.
