WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - There is a Donate Life Dress Giveaway coming up in a couple of weeks.

Organizer Laura Reff says it’s in honor of her daughter, Lucy, who died of a sudden illness in 2019.

She bought her wedding dress from Bella Bridal before she died. Bella Bridal then donated that dress for Lucy’s funeral.

Watch the video above for her interview on 7 News This Morning.

And now, Bella Bridal is donating brand new, overstock dresses to give away to support organ donations. There will be wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the bride or groom dresses, prom dresses, and military ball dresses.

People can choose their dresses and make whatever donation they want.

There will be a kickoff party with wine-, beer, and food-tasting from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, March 24 at the Top of the Square at 105 Court Street in Watertown. The dresses will be available to preview. People can donate money at that time or sign up to be an organ donor.

The dress giveaway will be in the same place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. on Saturday, March 25, and Sunday, March 26.

You can contact Reff with questions at 315-767-1588.
