What is GHGH?

It seems like all good ideas are hatched over a bottle of wine. In late 2007 at a monthly networking event, a light bulb materialized above our heads. “Wouldn’t it be great if we could make an event that would bring members of the local wedding industry together AND raise money for a great cause?” A novel idea, there was nothing like it. Over the next couple of months, Get Hitched, Give Hope was born. Who is this “we” you ask? The original founders included:

Get Hitched Give Hope’s mission is to bring the community together through niche events like our annual bridal auction gala while raising money for a great cause.
Get Hitched Give Hope is proudly powered 100% by volunteers in order to maximize donations to our beneficiaries. Board members, team members, designers, performers, and event staff have donated an endless amount of hours, services, and products to make GHGH’s mission a reality.

What if you only had one year to live…What would your dream be? Many dreams involve creating a happy final memory for small children of a dying parent. Others reunite family members 
or bring a loved one to the bedside of a dying friend or relative for a few precious final moments of comfort.  There are no typical dreams. Dreams are as unique as the dreamers.

Here is just a fraction of what we’ve been able to do with your donations:

  • Susan and her family of 8 were able to have one last family vacation in Hawaii
  • Heather and her family of 6 were able to see Mickey Mouse at Disney World
  • Sharon’s wish was for her family of 4 to go to Hawaii
  • We sent Susan and her son to Key West for one final good-bye

Get Hitched Give Hope is proud to partner with Dream Foundation and Young Survival Coalition to help carry out final dreams and provide support for survivors.

Dream Foundation, founded in Santa Barbara in 1994, is the first national wish granting organization for adults suffering life-threatening illness. The mission of the Dream Foundation is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their families who are battling life-threatening illness. Dream Foundation helps adults find peace and closure with the realization of a final wish.

A small group of breast cancer survivors began meeting in 2002 in the home of one of its members, and they found there was a need for support and services for young women diagnosed with breast cancer. Since then, Young Survival Coalition has provided a supportive environment for over 100 young women with breast cancer in the Seattle area, as well as countless women nationwide.
