So Cal Officiant is proud to be a donor for Wish Upon A Wedding and Bid Your Wish For Wedded Bliss. We’ve donated a free Fun & Romantic wedding package, valued at $375. The auctions begin on October 1, 2010. Hundreds of products and services in 46 cities throughout the country will be auctioned off, all to help couples create the perfect wedding or event, all at incredible prices! All proceeds raised will help grant wedding wishes for terminally ill individuals. As a cancer survivor, my boss felt it was very important to help organizations like this.
Couples planning to be married can bid for wedding-related auction items online starting in October or at a Blissful Wishes Balls Nationwide in November, with all proceeds benefiting Wish Upon a Wedding. This new organization is the world’s first nonprofit that provides weddings for individuals facing life-threatening illness.
Blissful Wishes Ball, our first ever cross country Galas, will take place during November at 12 locations across the country (tickets go on sale on August 15th at http://wishuponawedding.eventbrite.com)
The purpose of both events is to raise crucial funding for Wish Upon a Wedding. While it’s true vendors from the wedding and hospitality industry help us grant wishes by donating their products and services to couples facing terminal illness, there are many other costs associated with being a brand new, grass-roots nonprofit organization.
Imagine how much MORE we could do for these wonderful couples if we just had the funds to:
* Reunite families by flying up to four people to and from the weddings we provide!
* Put those friends or family up in a nice hotel for a few nights, further enhancing the experience.
* Allow them to enjoy a nice meal the day before the wedding, or perhaps a day after brunch?
