This year for Christmas, Hubby & I decide to do something a bit different. Last year we had an amazing Christmas party with our friends. We laughed, exchanged gifts, and even had an ugly sweater fashion show. When Ry & I started thinking about what our Christmas would look like this year, we knew that we needed to do something else.
Ry gave me full authority to take it & run, so i did. I ran straight to my amazing girlfriends who are all super intelligent and creative ladies. Heather, Stacy, Angie, Ashley, & Ashanti & I met around my kitchen table, and they loved the idea of hosting a Charity Event to benefit Project Care Case, a local organization who helps kids in foster care by providing them with suitcases filled with items they need.
Next we needed a place to host, and Wanderlust Boutique and gallery, graciously, allowed us to use their AMAZING space for FREE. When hosting any event, venue is super important. I knew I wanted this to be a chic night filled with fun and Wanderlust provided the perfect atmosphere.
Ashley had the idea of calling it Project Care Case, so with a name for our event, a purpose, and a location, we were ready to go. My amazing friend Tiffany designed our logo and with that, the event started to take shape. Not only did she design our logo but she took so many amazing photos of the night!
Deep Eddy Vodka, provided drinks for FREE and even sent a server out to serve our guest in style. Simply Regal Provided Small Bites for our guest to enjoy, and SugaPlump provided sweet treats. My sweet friend, Amanda, also made some yummy cakeballs for us to enjoy as well.
So many amazing Sponsors gave items to both our Silent Auction & Swag Bags (To see a list, visit our event page, by clicking here. )
I even asked a local church if they would be willing to do a drive to help add to the donations we would be receiving from the guest at the event. They agreed, and provided us with so many items.
Bijou Handcrafted made me these great necklaces for our swag bags as well:
