Trash the Dress...what a great idea!

Hey I just herd of this fundraiser for kids with cancer that we can use our wedding dresses or formal dresses. December 20 12noon at the Crowne Plaza in Downtown Harrisburg. There will be a mass water balloon fight! Wear your wedding dress or a bridesmaids dress (you know you have one that you'll never wear again anyways!) $50 to participate half goes to this children's cancer fund half to get a photo and a full cd of the day's pictures. How much fun does this sound? I know I'm not wearing my dress again and I love it so, however, it's taking up so much space in our little closet.

Re: Trash the Dress...what a great idea!

  • There has to be a better way than this. Just sounds awful.
  • Sounds fun but, you may want to hang on to them.  Alot of cities take dresses like these donated from people and host a free "shopping" event where lower income high school students can get a prom dress.  Houston does this once a year and it is always a big hit.  I'd check on that too...
  • I have donated old prom dresses to a group that puts on a prom for handicap kids.  The water balloons would be fun, but I would rather use my dress in a different way.

  • Also there is bridesagainstbreastcancer.org, for a tax-deductible donation.
  • Dear Judgy McJudgersons,

    I seriously doubt that any high school kids are going to wear wedding dresses to their prom. 

    Also, water is not going to hurt a dress.  They will not melt like the wicked witch of the west.  The dress could still be donated if they so choose.

    This doesn't make it less stupid. Maybe it makes YOU sound stupid.

  • I think it's a fun idea.  A lot of people do TTD sessions, why not help out some kids while you're at it?
