New Charity Partnership with Fighting Pretty!

We are so excited to be sponsoring Fighting Pretty! Founder Kara Dolce and Program Director Kelly Delaney stopped by the Portland boutique to pick up their gift of $5,000, helping to provide 100 free beauty kits to women undergoing chemotherapy. Brides for a Cause staff attended the Fighting Pretty volunteer night to help pack up these beauty kits! Thank you Kara, and everyone with Fighting Pretty, for empowering women during such a difficult time in their lives.
