Earlier this summer we were approached by our Authorized Retailer from Elmira, Ontario, Taylor’s Bridal Boutique. Linda from Taylor’s Bridal Boutique shared a beautiful and touching story with us about an event that they are holding this weekend, a wedding show with all proceeds going to the Grand River Cancer Center.
The idea for this event was sparked in May 2013 by a long time Taylor’s Bridal Boutique sales associate, Bonnie. Bonnie was a 10 year cancer survivor after battling breast cancer, and after she was given a clean bill of health, she went on to work at Taylor’s Bridal Boutique assisting countless brides and bridesmaids with finding their perfect dress. Despite learning that the cancer had returned in 2013, Bonnie stayed positive and continued to work with her clients and with Linda at Taylor’s Bridal Boutique, and shared her idea of putting together a wedding show where all proceeds would be donated to the Grand River Cancer Center.
Through work and treatment, Bonnie continued to make plans and lay the ground work for the event, but sadly she lost her battle to cancer in September 2013.
Linda has since picked up where Bonnie left off and has finished putting together the Woolwich Wedding Wishes Wedding Show in Elmira. The Wedding Show will be held at the Elmira Lions Hall this weekend on Sunday September 21st, 2014 from 12pm to 5pm.
Elmira Lions Hall
40 South St. W.
Admission is $5 and there will be a Grand Prize draw during the event. Tickets for the Grand Prize are $5 each or 5 for $20. Paloma Blanca and Mikaella are honoured to donate the Grand Prize: a Paloma Blanca or Mikaella wedding dress of the winners’ choice.
The Wedding Show will also feature a fashion show and have a number of wedding vendors set up at the hall, as well as a BBQ and a silent auction.
If you are in the Southwestern Ontario area, please do not miss out on this spectacular event in honour of such an amazing woman and truly deserving cause. For more information, please contact the staff at Taylor’s Bridal Boutique:
