HACKENSACK, N.J., July 16, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Association of Wedding Gown Specialists (AWGS) is pleased to announce it has partnered with Wish Upon A Wedding. Wish Upon a Wedding, based in Columbus, Ohio, grants wishes for weddings and vow renewals to couples across the country who are facing illness or life-altering circumstances. Going forward, members of the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists will provide gown care and gown preservations to help commemorate the celebrations of love.
"Our members, represented in more than 500 cities around the world, specialize in caring for wedding gowns, both old and new," said Kermit Engh, AWGS president. "When we learned about the truly remarkable dream weddings made possible by Wish Upon a Wedding, our members immediately volunteered to offer our services to these couples in crisis."
Hallak Cleaners has been a member of AWGS since 1997. Throughout the decades, the Association of Wedding Gown Specialists has helped link Hallak to important organizations, which helped create lasting and meaningful relationships with them. These national partnerships are an extension of Hallak's charitable projects and responsibility to the community.
Couples seeking help may apply to http://www.WishUponAWedding.org. Individuals and companies, too, may apply to this nonprofit which has allowed countless wedding and hospitality professionals the opportunity to provide goods and services to couples enduring great challenges. Brides are also encouraged to donate gowns that can be sold to raise money for granting wishes.
Recommended by wedding gown designers and endorsed by the Association of Bridal Consultants, AWGS is a not-for-profit trade association with members offering MuseumCareTM ZeroCarbonTM green gown care in eight countries. Members are certified to ensure that wedding gowns and heirloom textiles of all kinds are cleaned according to established museum standards and preserved in archival-quality materials. Brides benefit from the personal, interactive service offered by members in local communities, but the guarantee is truly an international warranty because each member honors the guarantee of every other member no matter where in the world they may be.
AWGS partners with major wedding media, too, and sponsors the National Bridal Sale Event held annually the third Saturday in July. It has also taken a leading role in Come Find Your YES!, a national awareness campaign encouraging brides to shop locally.
