The Dream Southern Wedding partnership comes as a result of Lorenzo Lamas who is currently competing on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. Lamas chose Boot Campaign as his charity for the competition. During an episode of Celebrity Apprentice, Lamas and other contestants were tasked with selling bridal gowns. Supporters of the Boot Campaign purchased 14 gowns for the nonprofit. The Boot Campaign in turn donated those 14 wedding gowns and a $20,000 grant to Brides Across America. This partnership led to forming the Dream Southern Wedding sweepstakes.
The Boot Campaign is a national 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to showing tangible appreciation of our active military, raising awareness of the challenges they face upon return and supporting their transition home. The Boot Campaign cultivates awareness, promotes patriotism and provides assistance to military, past and present, and their families. Retail sales of combat boots, apparel and mission-focused merchandise, general public donations and corporate sponsorships allow the Boot Campaign to operate six initiatives including career transition, housing, education, wellness, urgent assistance and family support. These programs support military personnel, past and present, healing from a variety of physical and emotional combat wounds, embodying the campaign motto that, “When They Come Back, We Give Back”. http://www.BootCampaign.com
