PHOENIX – January 3, 2011 – Engaged couples have yet another reason to celebrate. Tickets are now on sale for the February 23rd, 2011 Brides Give Back event. Brides and grooms are invited to save big on their wedding day expenses by bidding on services donated by the Valley’s top wedding professionals. The big day soiree will take place at the Historic Icehouse in downtown Phoenix and will benefit Save the Family Foundation of Arizona, a local charity helping homeless families get back on their feet.
The cocktail party auction will offer brides and grooms the opportunity to sip champagne, mingle with Phoenix’s luxury wedding professionals, and bid on everything from photography to florals. Couples who attended the last Brides Give Back event secured wedding day essentials at as little as 30 percent of retail value, with all proceeds directly benefiting families in need. The event will feature musical entertainment, silent and live auctions, and cake samples galore.

Brides Give Back began in 2009. In it’s first year, the auction of more than $30,000 worth of donated goods and services helped to provide a night of shelter for 77 victims of domestic abuse.
