Marsha Steeves Destination Weddings are proud to be partnering again this year with the “YWCA- Crab Tree Corner Program!” Last year we contributed to a revamp Project, where Marsha was able to donate her old wedding dress and had it up cycled into a modern style. This was donated to a bride who could not otherwise afford her dream dress.

This year we are giving 50% of the ticket sales to the Crab Tree Corner Program helping to provide a healthy and secure environment for women and their families struggling in Vancouver’s impoverished Downtown Eastside. Crabtree Corner serves a diverse population with a variety of programs, including free early learning and care, transitional housing for pregnant and new mothers, hot meals, single mothers’ support groups, violence outreach and parenting support. Many staff and volunteers are former participants from Crabtree Corner programs or have experience with the issues facing women in the Downtown Eastside.

Marsha Steeves Destination Weddings also contributes to the Mentorship Program

2014 show !

Marsha Steeves Destination Weddings are partnering with Pure Magnolia, who is putting on our runway show, for their Revamp Project. The basic idea of the project is to take old donated wedding dresses and upcycle them into modern styles. Some of these dresses every year are made complimentary for brides who otherwise could not afford their dream wedding dress.  They are chosen out of the YWCA Crabtree corner program which helps moms and families stay off the streets in the DTES.  All the dresses are recycled and sold to brides with the proceeds of those dresses benefiting the YWCA.We will be happy to accept donated wedding dresses of any age or condition at the Toes in the Sand wedding fair to benefit this project.  Or they can be donated any time at the Pure Magnolia Studio in North Vancouver.
Marsha Steeves has donated her wedding dress to be upcycled and exhibited at the show.
