Introducing "Just 'Cause..."

Wednesday evening, Susan Southerland, Kristy Chenell {by proxy!} and I were overjoyed to announce the launch of our non-profit community project, "Just 'Cause" in a rather unconventional way...A party with upwards of 130 wedding industry professionals and friends socializing and partaking in a couple of friendly games of kickball!

Just 'Cause is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting and giving back to the Central Florida community in way of school dance dresses for underprivileged young teenage girls.

Enlisting the gracious support and talent of those professionals in the national wedding industry well known to founders, Susan Southerland, Lisa Konecny and Kristy Chenell, they have set out to provide stylish, couture dresses from the donation of bridesmaids’ gowns.

Spearheading a “grass roots” effort, they have requested the donation of bridesmaids’ dresses after their use from personal clientele. They intend to collect dresses that can be altered to fit the need and style of underprivileged girls with a desire to attend a homecoming, prom or social celebration with confidence.

With this endeavor, the incredible aptitude from local seamstresses, budding designers and stylists will be appointed to secure an appropriate and sophisticated look for our young girls per their individual specifications.

Drop off points throughout the Orlando area such as The Portofino Bay Hotel, Perfect Wedding Guide's corporate office, Write In Style's studio and Solutions Bridal Salon have been secured as well as preliminary plans for an early Spring event for girls to select a dress. For those interested in launching the program to additional US cities, please contact:
