Calling All Engaged Couples: Plan Your Wedding and Help a Local Charity

At the Brides Give Back event on Feb. 23, engaged couples will have the opportunity to bid on services being donated by some of the city’s most popular wedding vendors. Best of all, the event will benefit the Save the Family Foundation of Arizona.

Couples are invited to gather at the Icehouse in Downtown Phoenix at 6 p.m. for a cheerful cocktail party, during which they’ll sip champagne, try cake samples, enjoy musical entertainment, mingle with Valley wedding professionals and bid on luxury goods and services, such as photography and florals–everything needed to make the wedding day of their dreams become a reality.

And all ticket sales for the event, as well as 100 percent of the net proceeds, will benefit the Save the Family Foundation of Arizona, a charity that helps homeless families who are struggling to become self-sufficient. In 2009, the event’s first year, the auctioning off of more than $30,000 worth of goods and services helped to provide shelter for victims of domestic abuse, while engaged couples were able to secure wedding elements for as little as 30 percent of the retail value (with all the proceeds going directly to Save the Family).

Sounds like a win-win to us!

Tickets for admission to the event can be acquired via the Brides Give Back event site, and attendees name their own ticket price (meaning, you pay whatever amount you would like donated to the charity).

Brides Give Back | Save the Family | The Icehouse is located at 429 W. Jackson Street in Phoenix
