Busy Days

Greetings friends! So what's new? Well, our Step into Spring fashion show is next Friday! Kennedy from Mix 104.1 is joining us as a special celebrity guest judge for the Best-in-Shoe competition.Things are looking good for the event. We have awesome fashion retailers participating including Saks, Loft, Banana Republic, Chico's,  Lucky and Pendleton. Our models are going to be rocking some great outfits! Our host Danielle Vollmar, just got engaged over the weekend. She is so nice- she's hosted our show a few times before. I'm happy for her. Our event is featured in tomorrow's Yelp newsletter, so hopefully that will give us a nice bump in ticket sales. We're in a good place for tickets, but I always get anxious.

Here is a photo from last week's donation of over 250 stuffed animals, books and coloring books/crayons to the Boston Police Department. Boston is one of our largest departments that we donate to and it is one of my favorites.
We did a silent auction at Boston Event Guide's Luxe shopping event and their annual spring wine and beer fests last week. I'm happy to say that we raised $2,000 during the auctions. Boston Event Guide is so good to us and invite us to do silent auctions at their events. It is a relatively easy way to raise money and I am really grateful for how nice they are. I auction off autographed sports photographs that I get on consignment from a dealer, so anything that doesn't sell gets returned. We're never stuck with any unsold items, so it always works well.

Well, that's the latest for tonight. I'm off to sort some stuffed animals. Until tomorrow friends...
