Happy 1st Anniversary Angel Gowns of WNY, Inc.!
April 9th, 2015, marks the 1 year anniversary of the day I decided to start Angel Gowns of WNY! From one simple FB post, I found the 'something I was supposed to do' that I knew was out there waiting for me to find. I always wanted to have my own business, I just never thought it'd be a nonprofit.
In one short year, Angel Gowns of WNY has grown from a 2-woman small operation into a legal 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation with approximately 225 volunteers across 21 states and 2 countries!! We have taken in over 1000 donated wedding & special occasion dresses and have created well over 1200 Angel Gowns. Our network of recipients continues to grow as well with our Angel Gowns being delivered not only across all of Western New York but to Massachusetts, Colorado, Texas, Virginia, Florida, California, Wisconsin, Michigan and the list keeps growing!
To say I'm proud of what Angel Gowns of WNY, Inc. has become is to be putting it mildly. I'm beyond honored to be part of this wonderful charity with the BEST Volunteer Family I could ever hope for! The talent and dedication these ladies, and gentlemen, possess and give so freely to our Tiny Angels amazes me daily!
THANK YOU to every person who has donated a dress, supplies, money or time and THANK YOU to ALL of our Volunteers, and their families, who have given so much of themselves to help us serve our Tiny Angels and their families! THANK YOU to MY family for your support and encouragement!
I have so many ideas and plans for us that I can't wait to see through to fruition. Stay tuned - there's so much more to come from Angel Gowns of WNY!
