The Boys and Girls Home of North Carolina is planning an event that will be the first of its kind for the organization. A “Save the Date” bridal dress sale will take place during the month of February just in time for those who want to tie the knot on Valentine’s Day.
A local bridal shop, Nikki Couture Bridal, went out of business and donated the one-of-a-kind sample store dresses directly to the BGHNC. The inventory includes high end brands like David Tutero and Maggie Sottero.
“Some of these dresses retail for over $1,500, but we are selling them at rock bottom prices,” said Volunteer Mobilization Coordinator Lisa Brown. The dresses were given with the intention that they could be sold to benefit the services of the organization. Thus, the idea for a boutique style dress sale was born.
The pieces come in a variety of sizes and will include both bridal gowns and flower girl apparel. A notebook with descriptions and pictures is available for viewing at the BGHNC Country Thrift Store during business hours ahead of the event.
“We are excited to be able to bring this special event to the community,” said President and CEO Ricky Creech. “This is an example of the creative thinking of our community supporters in providing a donation that will benefit the community and the youth and families served by BGHNC.”
The “Save the Date” event will take place on Saturday, Feb. 12 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday 1 p.m.- 4 p.m. at the Morton Conference Center located at 205 Top Tobacco Road in Lake Waccamaw. Masks are required, and cash and credit cards will be accepted for payment.
