The 2016 Spring Bridal Show & Benefit will be held at Brazos County Expo Complex on Sunday, February 28, from 12pm to 4pm.

Attendees may browse more than 100 vendors at the event and visit one-on-one with wedding professionals who can personalize your ceremony, reception or honeymoon. Proceeds from tickets sales to the show will benefit Pink Alliance, a nonprofit dedicated to providing support to breast cancer patients in the Brazos Valley.

Tickets are $15 per person when purchased in advance online at babv.org; tickets are $20 per person at the door and every person, including small children, must have a ticket to enter the show. Organizers note that no strollers are allowed in the show due to safety reasons.

Advance ticket sales end at 12pm Saturday, February 27. All tickets are non-refundable.

Prize drawings held throughout the show are intended for brides only, and all prize awards are subject to verification, according to show organizers.

Over the past two decades, The Bridal Association of the Brazos Valley has donated more than $165,000 to local charities in the Brazos Valley.

The designated charity for the 2016 spring show is Pink Alliance – Breast Cancer Support of the Brazos Valley. Formed by five women who experienced the overwhelming emotions that come with the diagnosis of breast cancer, the mission of the organization is to provide educational resources to women in the community who receive a diagnosis of breast cancer. Pink Alliance has collaborated with the American Cancer Society to assemble a portfolio of pamphlets, books and other resources with relevant, useful information about topics such as: pathology reports, chemotherapy, surgical options, radiation therapy, sources for items such as breast prosthesis and wigs, and questions to ask their medical team. The organization also provides other resources and support.
