Since our founding in 1977, the Wedding Shoppe has helped thousands of brides and grooms, several of whom have been directly affected by breast cancer. Some were battling the disease, some were triumphant survivors, and some had lost a family member. We are devoted to helping people plan the perfect wedding, so it was only fitting that we try to help in an even bigger way: by founding Pink Bride, a campaign dedicated to fighting breast cancer by raising money for the American Cancer Society.
Attend the Pink Bride Charity Auction and Raffle.
One of our biggest events of the year is our annual Pink Bride Charity Auction and Raffle. This year, the event will be held from 6:30-8:30pm on Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at Sweeney’s Saloon in Saint Paul. Everyone is invited! So far we’ve received over $4000 in donations from vendors, businesses, and employees, so there is certain to be something at the event for everyone. Check out the Pink Bride Charity Auction and Raffle Facebook event page for a list of donated items, details about admission, and to RSVP!
Join our team for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk.
Every year for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), Wedding Shoppe employees and customers join together to create Team Pink Bride for the Twin Cities Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. This year, the walk will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2013. If you’re interested in getting involved, you can join our team or create a team of your own! There are walks all over the country, so participation isn’t limited to just Minnesota residents. Can’t make it to the walk? You can donate to support our team on our Team Pink Bride page on the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer website.
Shop Pink Bride breast cancer awareness shirts and other products.
Year-round, 10% of the proceeds from our Pink Bride breast cancer products goes to the American Cancer Society. The Pink Bride brand began with our breast cancer awareness shirts, and has since expanded to include men’s neckties, jewelry, purses, and other accessories. Shop our Pink Bride product gallery to see everything we have to offer, and watch for new products coming soon, including colored slips!
Thank you to everyone who has helped raise awareness or money for breast cancer research. Together we can work toward a world in which everyone can celebrate more weddings and anniversaries with the people they love.
