HopeChest 2017!!

We are thrilled to report that FUNdraising 2017 is off to a smashing start!! Our recent HopeChest wedding rummage sale raised almost $7,000 for the featured charities of Get Hitched, Give Hope!!! Our deepest thanks to everyone who helped make it possible — from our ALL volunteer staff, who showed up crazy early to set up, and helped manage a crowd of shoppers; our generous event sponsors, who provided snacks, beverages, entertainment, and the infrastructure to keep the whole sale running smoothly; and YOU, our altruistic donors and shoppers. A heartfelt thank you to those generous enough to upcycle your extra wedding supplies and a high-five to those who bought them at bargain prices! We love a win/win!
We are so grateful to everyone who joined us on such a beautiful day, with a special shout out to our VIP shoppers, who gain early access to the event to snag their picks first. Every sponsor went above and beyond, and brought smiles to the face of each guest who tippled on Bloody Mary’s and Mimosas or tee-totaled with espresso, snacked, enjoyed music to shop to, visited the beauty bar and mugged in the photobooth. Check out the photos below, by Rebecca Ellison Photography, to see the setup, the fantastic wares, and the fun time had by all!

Funds raised from the sales at HopeChest, all go to support our featured charities. Thank you for helping make that possible!!

On November 10th, 2016, brides, grooms, and the city’s best wedding professionals came from near and far to celebrate in Havana Nights fashion at the 9th annual Get Hitched Give Hope bridal auction and gala, an upscale, glamorous, and fanciful evening of wedding finery. You ate, drank, danced, and shopped — at our best and biggest Silent Auction ever– and won our most luxurious raffle prizes to date! It’s no surprise that together, we raised a record-breaking $140,000 to grant final wishes through Dream Foundation! Our generous guests, you have helped so many! Since its inception, Get Hitched Give Hope has raised more than $700,000 for charity. Thank you, Seattle. Thank you.

If you missed the gala and want a taste of what it was like, have a look at the incredible highlights slideshow below, captured by the fabulous team at La Vie Photography and a beautifully filmed video from First & Foremost Productions! See even more highlights images on our Facebook page. See all the shenanigans from the photo booth from The Lightning Booth on their Facebook page.

What Get Hitched Give Hope is all about…
One couple, 
Victor and Nicole, were able to plan the majority of their wedding in a couple of hours for 50% of the cost! This lovely couple bought VIP tickets and received a gift bag full of amazing goodies plus had a GHGH volunteer take them around to meet vendors and help them seek out what they needed for their wedding. They ended up winning:

            Carol Harrold Photography Package

            Custom Wedding Cake from Stone Layne Baked Specialties

            Magnolia Rhapsody DJ/MC Package

            Day of Coordination from New Creations Wedding Design & Coordination

            Wedding Invitation Suite from Songbird Paperie

It total, this couple spent $5,250 on these five packages; but in total, these packages are worth over $12,000!! One of our Get Hitched Give Hope founders talked to them during the gala and they told her that even if they didn’t win (since they had so many bids out there at once) that they would have hired those vendors anyway simply because they are good people for being involved in GHGH. I mean how cool is that!?!? They planned their wedding in under two hours basically. So awesome!! Thank you Victor and Nicole! Your giving embodies what Get Hitched Give Hope is really all about.


Didn’t win your bid or have a chance to donate at Get Hitched, Give Hope this year but still want to help? Finish up your year-end giving directly through the Get Hitched, Give Hope website!! Remember, your generous donations are tax-deductible and many employers will match your gift. Wahoo!! Want to get involved?? We would truly love to have you as an event sponsor, team member, or volunteer for our Gala, HopeBrew, or HopeChest events!!!
