Riverhead, NY - January 20th, 2014 - Here’s a way to not only save money but to also contribute to a worthy cause – attend Brides Against Breast Cancer's Nationwide Tour of Gowns, to be held at Atlantis Banquets & Events on Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1.
Atlantis Banquets & Events, part of the Long Island Aquarium & Exhibition family, will play host to the two-day event, starting with Friday's VIP Unveiling of the Gowns Reception, from 6:00pm to 9:30pm. For a $20.00 tax-deductible donation, attendees can enjoy light bites, entertainment, a pink drink of the night, and giveaways – they will also get a sneak peek at the gowns and the opportunity to try and buy before the show for the general public.
On Saturday, from 10:00am to 4:00pm, and for a $7.00 general admission ticket, brides-to-be can browse hundreds of new and gently used designer and couture gowns, priced at up to 85% off, with most gowns ranging from $99.00 to $3,900.00 and available in all styles and sizes 4-18.
In addition to hosting the event, Atlantis Banquets & Events will donate Friday night's VIP Unveiling of the Gowns Reception, Saturday's events, food and beverage for one-hour, and three nights at the Hyatt Place East End & Resort Marina, located just next door.
