WE DID IT!!! Get Hitched Give Hope Raises a Celebration-Inducing $100,000!!!!!

 

 

Get Hitched Give Hope raises 100k at it

Close your eyes for a second. Imagine the salty smell of popcorn and sweet aroma of cotton candy, the sparkle of glitter and whimsy of balloons, the trumpeting of elephants and rumbling roar of lions.

You hear the call of the ringmaster, booming out over the roaring crowd in his melodic cantor, “Laaaaaadies and gentlemen, brides and grooms, welcome to the grrrrrreatest show on earth! A spectacular spectacle! The most giving of galas! The show of all shows! Step right up, and see the one, the only, the most fantastic gathering of clever coordinators, beguiling beat-makers, fantastic florists, delectable deserts, skillful shutterbugs, and dashing dressmakers all under one roof!” Welcome to the 5th annual Get Hitched Give Hope.

FOR OUR 5TH ANNIVERSARY- WE SET OUR GOAL HIGH. WITH YOUR HELP, WE RAISED A CELEBRATION-INDUCING $100,000. FROM THE TIPS OF OUR TOES TO THE TOPS OF OUR HATS, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.

On November 8th 2012, over 500 brides and grooms, their friends and family, and Seattle’s most philanthropic wedding professionals came together once again to support the work of Dream Foundation and Young Survival Coalition Seattle. Brooke and Jubal from Movin 92.5 lead the evening with humor, stories, and introductions. With caramel corn in hand, you bid on silent auction items that would make any bride’s heart flutter, pledged to grant final dreams, and listened to stories from the heart; stories about how you have helped people in their final days have one last dream come true. As tears welled in our eyes, you gave more, bid higher, and won the MOST amazing jewelry, accessories, food, getaways, and services for your weddings in the history of Get Hitched Give Hope.

And then…. the moment we have been waiting for all year long. The pop of the confetti canons and delighted yelps of happiness from the crowd followed four simple words:  ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS. Confetti fluttered from the ceiling as we danced harder than we’ve ever danced before. It was a night we will never forget, and we are so proud that we got to share it with you.

Standing ovations and applause worthy of the best circus act in the history of the world goes to our tireless volunteers, selfless sponsors, and generous vendors. Without our GHGH family, we could not have had so much fun, gotten such amazing deals, and raised so much to make final dreams possible.
