Source: Submitted More than 500 designer gowns will be sold March 9 to raise money for Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition programs of awareness, education and treatment.

The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition recently announced that a $100 Designer Bridal Gown Sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, March 9, at the Delaware State Fairgrounds in Harrington. The event will feature more than 500 donated bridal gowns for sale at drastically discounted prices with all proceeds benefiting DBCC’s programs and services in Delaware and surrounding communities. The event is free and open to the public.

The gowns, which have been donated to DBCC by manufacturers, bridal shops and brides, will all be priced at $100. The sale will include couture and exclusive designer wedding gowns valued up to $8,000. Gowns are of assorted styles and designers and range from sizes 2 to 32.

This is the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s third bridal gown sale. DBCC held Designer Bridal Gown Sales last March at the Sheraton Wilmington South and again in November at the Delaware State Fairgrounds. Together, the two sales raised more than $25,000 for DBCC.

“We are so thrilled that so many brides found their wedding gowns at our sale,” said DBCC's Public Affairs Coordinator Caitlin Dalik.  “At the sale in November, brides were lined up for their chance to find their dream dress for $100, and it was such a fun shopping event!”

“DBCC’s Designer Bridal Gown Sale is truly a community effort,” said Vicky Cooke, DBCC’s executive director. “Designers, bridal shops and brides from across the country have donated wedding gowns to raise money for the fight against breast cancer.”

The funds raised through this sale will be used to expand DBCC’s programs in Delaware and surrounding communities to increase breast cancer awareness, promote the importance of early detection, and provide access to mammograms, and support and resources to women and men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. For more information about DBCC’s programs and services, visit www.debreastcancer.org.

The fairgrounds are at 18500 South DuPont Highway, Harrington. The sale will be held in the Dover Building on the fairgrounds. All sales will be cash or credit card only. Free parking is available.
