*The plight of the Riley family came to our attention when Kylie bought a wedding dress from us. This was to renew her vows with Brett, her husband of four years who (in January this year) received a diagnosis of cancer of the esophagus. His prognosis is very grim as this is an aggressive cancer. Our dealings with Kylie revealed a wife who was very determined not to remain idle in the search for answers and possible alternative treatment options for Brett. This comes at a cost.
The illness has taken it's toll, not just on Bretts health but also on his immediate family as naturally he had to quit his job & begin a course of chemo. We do care about our customers & my staff have shed more than a few tears during their dealings with Kylie and Brett. We decided on this show as a way of showing our Aroha for them, raising awareness of the trials many families face when cancer makes an appearance & also as a visible means to thank all the brides we have had the pleasure to deal with over the years.
ENTRY IS FREE & we will take a cash collection on the night to pass on to the Rileys in addition to an auction.
