Fall 2019 Service Project

As a part of our fall production, the Madonna University Repertory Theatre is giving back to the community through our support of The Brides Project

What is The Brides Project?

The Brides Project posterThe Brides Project is a non-profit bridal salon in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  Wedding dresses are donated to The Brides Project from all across the country. The money raised from the sale of gowns supports families touched by cancer through the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor. The mission of TBP is to support adults and kids impacted by cancer by ensuring sustainable funding to the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor, and to provide brides with a socially-conscious, eco- and budget-friendly option for purchasing their wedding gowns.

How can I help?

We’re so glad you’re interested! 

Theatre patrons are encouraged to donate their 5-years-or-younger gowns to The Brides Project when they attend Madonna University Repertory Theatre’s production of Neil Simon’s The Star-Spangled Girl in Kresge Hall on November 1-3, 2019.  At each production, members of The Brides Project staff will be present to accept the gowns.

What if I don’t have a gown to donate?

No worries - there are other ways for you to contribute!

Cancer Support Community - Greater Ann ArborThe Brides Project representatives will be happy to accept monetary donations to the Cancer Support Community of Greater Ann Arbor. In addition, you can get information on how to become a volunteer consultant or even schedule a bridal appointment! Lastly, you can help spread the word to brides and their families about an affordable source for a beautiful gown – the purchase of which will help cancer patients, their families, and their caregivers.

Of course, you can always donate to The Brides Project or the Cancer Support Community at any time!
