Mayville, New York (Wednesday, February 11, 2009)-The Chautauqua Suites Meeting & Expo Center will heat up on Sunday, February 15, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m., when a Bridal Runway Fashion Show and Vendor Extravaganza will help raise funds for the WCA Hospital Heart Center. The Show will be held at the all new, spectacular Chautauqua Suites, located at 215 West Lake Road, Mayville, New York. Admission and parking are free to the public.
This unique event will feature the area's top wedding professionals representing the best in their field. Brides will meet one-on-one with caterers, florists, bakers, photographers, DJ's, musicians, jewelers & much, much, more to discuss in detail the plans for their special day. The Show will host a vendor exhibit, giving attendees an opportunity to talk face-to-face with businesses supplying goods and services to future brides.
A sizzling day of bridal fashions and festivities will include a bridal runway fashion show, charity silent auction, raffle tickets, bridal vendors and services, and a gift registry. What's more, Chautauqua Suites will offer special Valentine’s Day Weekend getaway packages. Visit www.discoverchautauqua.com for more details.
In conjunction with the Bridal Show, representatives from the WCA Heart Center will be on hand to raise awareness about the high rate of heart disease among women and the steps women can take to make heart healthy lifestyle changes in their lives to prevent heart disease.
"February is Valentine's Day and National Heart Month and a great time to raise talk about matters of the heart," said Toni DeAngelo, R.N., WCA Hospital Wellness Program Director. "For men, the classic ‘Hollywood heart attack’ involves sudden chest pain, but for women heart disease symptoms are less dramatic, less sudden. Instead, women may experience pain or discomfort in the jaw, arms, neck and back, shortness of breath, nausea or lightheadedness, flu-like symptoms, or breaking out in a cold sweat, all of which women may not realize are symptomatic of heart disease. Small lifestyle changes can make a big difference in heart health. We invite attendees to make a special stop by our "Take Heart" vendor display during the Bridal Show and learn more about how they can take some simple steps to prevent heart disease-the No. 1 killer of women in the United States."
"Our Bridal Show will feature the very finest exhibitors and services to help brides plan their very special day," said Rita Meleen, Event Coordinator at Chautauqua Suites. "The highlight of the event will be a one-of-a-kind bridal runway fashion show with the latest wedding dress fashions, which was a big hit at last fall's show. We will also offer a Valentine’s Weekend special this year, with a romantic weekend getaway package. If you're heading out on Sunday, be sure to make a special stop; it promises to be a great affair for a great cause!"
The Chautauqua Suites Valentine's Package is available for $149.00 per night (plus tax) that includes a $50.00 dinner voucher for Olives and two Breakfast Buffet Vouchers. Rates based on double occupancy, additional nights only $69.00 per night. To make reservations to stay, call 716.269.STAY (7829).
The public can make a donation to the WCA Heart Center during the Bridal Show or by sending donations directly to WCA Hospital. Additional information on the Bridal Show is available on www.discoverchautauqua.com.
