OK, is it just me, or does this blog post’s title have some major rhyming action?
Ha! Well regardless of my future as a poet, I wanted to announce that I will be emceeing a HUGE event coming up very soon that is very near and dear to my heart. It’s the She’s the First birthday soiree — a celebration of style & substance that is nothing short of what SDV believes in.
Read on for more on She’s the First and why you should attend this non profit’s 1-year birthday party and fundraising event [and we can’t forget, to experience Sammy D as the official emcee!]
WHO?: She’s the First — a non profit devoted to connecting people like you and me to young girls across the globe in need of sponsors for their education. These girls are often the “first” amongst their female relatives to attend school. She’s the First helps bridge the gap between sponsors and schools in developing countries which support the education of girls.
WHAT?: A birthday party and fundraising event! She’s the First is celebrating its 1 year of existence in a big way — by hosting a party complete with a one-hour open bar, complimentary cupcakes, raffle prizes, fun photo booths and of course, a fun host [me!] And if I weren’t enough [I know, so bashful], DJ Kalkutta is spinning all night PLUS a very special dance performance by Infini8!
WHEN?: November 1st from 7 to 10PM. The open wine bar sponsored by Conundrum is 7 to 8PM — included with your ticket.
WHERE?: Pop Burger’s midtown location at 14 E. 58th Street. It’s a “glamorous burger joint,” — worth checking out just to see this oxymoron actually work in real life!
PERKS? Um … I didn’t give you enough up above? On top of cupcakes, wine, live DJ, dance performance PLUS the chance to take home an awesome raffle prize, you can also be one of the first to purchase the official She’s the First bracelet. Don’t know what that is? Watch the video immediately above … and yes, that is JoJo, one of the official spokespersons for She’s the First and its platform! Click here to buy one now, designed by Asha Patel … and be way ahead of the curve with this stylish statement!
WHY SHOULD I CARE? Because we are all the “first” in our families to achieve something. And for girls in developing countries, that first is often education, and the chance to empower the futures of their families, villages, homelands and the world itself. By attending the She’s the First Soiree, you are directly supporting a cause that makes the world a better place.
HOW? I thought you’d never ask! Order your ticket online here, and bring it with you to Pop Burger for the 1-year-birthday-bash worth boasting about.
I hope to see SO MANY of you there!!! Please send me a line or leave a comment below with any further questions! I’ll be filming an episode of SDV-TV at the event, so come on by if you want to be in this episode! ;-)
