Big Reminder, folks! Tomorrow (Sunday, April 5) is the Sewing Hope Fashion Event. If you are planning to go to the event, look for me there. I’m the gal with the “fake red hair” (thanks ever so much for that witty insult, Jack Mackenroth) wearing the fabulous outfit next to the 6 foot 7 inch gorgeous man (that would be the truly witty and urbane Emmett McCarthy). Tickets are still available, and it’s a great cause, so please come by. I have no affiliation with the group other than an attendee, but I believe in it. Here is the reminder email:
It’s not too late, but this is the last day to get your ticket before our 2nd Annual Sewing Hope Event! Your name was given to us to invite personally, and space is limited, so reserve your spot at our party now. You can buy tickets at the door with cash or check only….so if you want to pay with a credit card, buy online now!!!
DJ Kamau Mucoki will spin the event. Don’t miss his mix of Afro-beat, reggea, and gospel-inspired music. Free-flowing drinks (till 9), and raffles of high-end items….including Broadway tickets, designer clothing, jewelry, Gossip Girl set-visit, interior design consultation, and tickets to a Met Opera dress rehearsal/backstage tour. Don’t miss out— bring your dollars!
If you cannot make it to the event, please consider donating anyway. Or attend our AFTERPARTY!! ….same location, after 10pm, for only $5. La Chipettes will take over the DJ booth, raffles, dancing! This night is our main event for the year and your money will go towards our summer trip, helping provide amazing things in the lives of our women!
The purpose of Sewing Hope is to support tailoring programs and teachertraining within small communities in Uganda, with the intention of creating an opportunity at financial independence for our students. The women we help are a direct result of AIDS devastation. By helping these women, families are supported and empowered, and children are left with positive role models.
One of Sewing Hope¹s main purposes is to show professionals in the fashion and costume industries here in New York that our field can be more than style and glamour. It is also a business that cares deeply aboutwomen and their empowerment. By participating with us, you will be a part of a unique organization that embodies these values both here in New York, and also in Africa.
Our yearly fashion event raises awareness for our cause, and raises fundsthat go directly to aid these women. Every summer, we fly to the villages to distribute supplies, teach classes, and generally support their work.
Buy your ticket now! See the details below or visit our website for more information. It will be a great party!
Hope to see you there!
Director of Sewing Hope
