Ladies, rather than doing the played out "trash the dress" concept, you might consider donating your used wedding dress to this wonderful cause. Or, perhaps you've simply run out of room to store a wedding dress you don't want, or simply want to forget about.

Sherri Robbennolt-Howe and her friends run a local non-profit organization that re-purposes wedding gowns into infant burial gowns, aka "Angel Gowns," for Montana hospitals and birthing centers at no cost. The creators of 'Emma & Evan Gowns' invite you to their "Bless The Dress" event on Sunday, December 11th from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Source gym at 255 South Russell.

You can drop off your dress, enjoy free apple cider and hot chocolate and meet the ladies who create the infant gowns. You will also have an opportunity to purchase hand made Christmas ornaments and raffle tickets to support the cause.

The raffle is for a 12 gauge Mossberg Duck Commander shotgun with a regular barrel and a tactical one. Tickets are $20 each and only 200 will be available with the drawing held on December 21st.
