In conjunction with these Galas, couples planning to be married will be able to bid for wedding-related auction items online or at any of the live events, all at incredible prices, during October and November. Wedding and event professionals representing more than 20 auction categories are donating the items, which cover many of the details and services needed to plan the perfect wedding. Items will be donated and available to engaged couples in 46 cities, and range from wedding gowns to tuxedos, invitations to cakes, and limousine services to honeymoons.
A dozen chapters of Wish Upon a Wedding are currently busy preparing for the nonprofit’s nation-wide celebrations, for which tickets will be available beginning August 15, 2010. The online auctions will run during the months of October and November at https://www.biddingforgood.com/auction/AuctionHome.action?auctionId=115386483

Souza added, “The Galas that are taking place in November will be a chance for the local communities to learn more about Wish Upon a Wedding, while enjoying great food, entertainment, and exciting auction items from local vendors & suppliers.”

Wish Upon a Wedding is dedicated to granting weddings to couples who are facing terminal illness, regardless of sexual orientation. The foundation was created to celebrate the courage, determination and spirit of these couples by granting their dream wedding wishes. The hope is that chosen recipients can inspire other couples facing similar situations to find hope and strength. Wish Upon a Wedding is organized exclusively for charitable purposes, including for such purposes, the making of distributions to organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under Section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code, or corresponding section of any future federal tax code.
