Join us for our First Annual DESIGN for the CURE! Help Bridal Chateau in raising awareness and money for the Breast Cancer Network of WNY, located in Depew, NY by designing dresses. The mission of the BCN is to support, educate, and advocate for individuals with breast cancer, breast cancer survivors, and family and friend co-survivors. BCN offers programming, education, and support to those impacted by breast cancer.

The theme of the dresses is Breast Cancer Awareness.  What does this look like to you? Has this personally affected you? Through painting, designing, dying, or any other way you see fit to create/recreate your dress, show us how this disease has affected you! This contest is open to any group or individual over 18 years of age.

The submitted piece must be an original design.  You may use bases provided by us, use your own, or build your own.  We will be offering a limited amount of base dresses for applicant’s to use for their creations.  You may stop in anytime during Bridal Chateau’s hours to pick up your dress. Dresses will be provided on a First Come, First Served basis.  The piece must be re-purposed or designed in some way by the applicant to the theme. Submissions may be submitted by an individual or by a group.  A photo of the creation must be emailed to no later than October 31, 2018 . The actual piece will need to be submitted in person to Bridal Chateau no later than their close of business on Nov. 6, 2018. If there are any changes made between the photo and the physical submitted creation, the applicant will be disqualified.  Pictures may be shown on a model or a mannequin. A mannequin and space may be reserved through Bridal Chateau, you may call them at 716-631-8345 and ask for Cathy or Beth to set up a time.

All photo submissions need to be submitted with this application form (a photo of the form filled out may be sent in with project pictures by email). Once a submission is received, a landing page for their fundraiser towards the Breast Cancer Network of WNY will be created.  Photos will be uploaded on November 1, 2018 to the Bridal Chateau Facebook page with a link to each applicant’s page. From there people can ‘vote’ for their favorite creation by donating to that applicant’s fundraiser. Applicant’s are encouraged to share their creations and links.  Voting will end on November 15th at Midnight and the winner will be determined by who raises the most funds for our Cause. Prizes will be awarded and the winner will be named by Bridal Chateau on Friday, November 16th. The winner will receive a cash prize of $200, a photo shoot with their creation at the Adore Studio by Dana Marie Photography, and will have their creation featured at future events.
