Paulette started this organization by lending out the wedding gowns of her four daughters. Many girls needed to borrow a gown due to financial reasons and others were simply looking for an alternative to buying. She quickly realized what a great need there was in our community. Slowly but surely, Paulette's gown collection started to grow.
She treated each bride as if she were her own daughter. Her goal was to make sure that every bride would feel her best on her special day. Paulette handed over her legacy to her daughter, Shelly Cohen a"h, and the GMACH soon became the apple of her eye. "Shellys Brides" became the highlight of her day and got her through some of her toughest battles. Every bride was treated with golden gloves.
Today the legacy lives on by Shelly's children and a group of devoted selfless volunteers. The GMACH is currently in a storefront location and boasts more than 300 gowns, We constantly buy bridal and bridal party gowns to keep our inventory fresh and up to date. Our gowns are current styles and rival many upscale boutiques. It has been an honor to dress you for your special occasions and we hope to service you for many years to come. Our only hope is to continue growing and giving back to our wonderful community. May this great zechut be an elevation for Shelly Cohen’s soul, and may she see true nachat from this great establishment. We should all merit to see the coming of Mashiach, speedily in our days.
The Shelly Cohen Bridal Fund was started by Paulette Tawil a"h, a woman who's heart was as wide open as her doors.
