Brides Against Breast Cancer Nationwide Tour of Gowns

The Brides Against Breast Cancer Nationwide Tour of Gowns is returning to Boston on June 11-12 at the Sheraton Boston Hotel. They need volunteers to help with set up/tear down and to help brides find the gowns of their dreams! Proceeds benefit Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to granting wishes to terminal breast cancer patients.


Sheraton Boston Hotel

VIP Champagne Brunch: Saturday, June 11 from 10 AM - Noon

General Sale: Saturday, June 11 from Noon - 6 PM

General Sale: Sunday, June 12 from 10 AM - 6 PM


Choose shift(s) above to reserve a spot. No tickets are required, but registration is necessary to reserve time slot. Please arrive 15 minutes before shift! Upon arrival, please check-in at the volunteer table and grab a t-shirt.

Feel free to sign up for multiple days and shifts. Feel free to invite your friends, family and co-workers -- even husbands and boyfriends (need guys to help with the heavy stuff!).

Where THEY Need Help

1. Registration - Signing in brides as they enter the sale (men can help).

2. Bride Greeter - This person will be inside the sale area and will direct brides on rules and how the sale area is set up (men can help).
3. Dress Runner - This person will help re-stock the dress racks from the fitting room "go back" racks (men can help).
4. Dressing Room Help - This person will be inside the dressing room and will assist the brides trying on gowns.
5. Dressing Room Attendant - This person will be inside the fitting room assisting the volunteers with "no deal" gowns - making sure the gowns are ready to return to the floor.


What to Wear

Please wear dressy attire, such as khaki, black or brown pants or skirt. Jeans are fine as long as there are no rips or holes! Each volunteer will be given a Brides Against Breast Cancer t-shirt to wear at the event. Don’t forget comfortable shoes!


Valet parking is available at the hotel and self parking at the mall nearby. There is also street parking in the area.

Bring Friends!

Invite friends, family and colleagues! We need men too, especially for set up, tear down and to help return gowns to the racks during the sale, so invite boyfriends, fianc├ęs and brothers to help!

If you have any questions, please e-mail Brittney at

This idea is very great. Brides Against Breast Cancer is an awesome organization. They were doing a tour locally and I had not purchased a dress yet so I figured I'd go and see what it was all about.
