Greetings friends! I don't know how it has been almost a month since I last blogged. I need to get back to blogging regularly. So what's new? Well, things are going well. Our Step into Spring fashion show fundraiser went great. We had 200 guests attend and had lots of great feedback. Assembly Row was a wonderful partner for the event. They were a pleasure to work with. Guests enjoyed great fashion from Assembly retailers including Saks and enjoyed delicious cocktails and appetizers from Assembly Row restaurants. The fashions looked great and the food was delicious! A number of retailers also donated items for the silent auction. We raised almost $4,000 which was terrific. It was more than double what our spring shows raised in the past. Special thanks to our vendor sponsors IT Works and Athena's by Kristin, along with our event partner Yelp. We were very happy that the event was included in the Boston Globe's Names section on the day of the event.
Danielle Vollmar from Channel 5 did a great job as usual as host. It was great that we had a lot of special guests including Sam Sisakhti, Us Trendy founder, Miss Massachusetts USA, Miss New Hampshire USA and Miss Maine USA along with their Miss Teen counterparts who also modeled in the fashion show. All of our lovely models donated their time to participate in the show. Here are a few photos. This is our model Rita rocking the white pantsuit.
Well, I have a load of updates that I need to submit to our web host. I didn't get around to submitting them earlier and want to get them done today. Then off to watch on my favorite guilty pleasure TV show- Real Housewives of NYC (don't judge me please!) Until tomorrow friends....
