How AMAZING does that sound?! I’ll definitely be putting my name into the hat a few times for that one…

Plus, I’m also really excited about their “Bling Bling Jewelry Exchange.” Attendees are encouraged to bring in a fun piece of jewelry that they’d like to exchange for something else. Janet  Chambers, the founder of I Have Wings, said this is a fan favorite of the attendees each year because they think of the event each time they wear their new piece! She said many people use their exchanged jewelry for proms​, ​crafts, embellishments, wedding bouquets, repurposing – new jewelry, dress-ups, gifts, etc.

Just as a little backstory, the I Have Wings Breast Cancer Foundation was founded in 2002​ by Janet Chambers. This is the 12th Spring Bling Razzle Dazzle Luncheon, and it’s one of their big annual fundraisers that helps fund their efforts throughout the year. Some of the highlights include:

  • Laugh with ER nurse Terry Foster (you can’t make this stuff up)
  • Emcee Liz Bonis
  • Free gift for all breast cancer survivors
  • Tables and tables of $1 jewelry – Tons one of a kind pieces
  • Celebrate the 2016 WINGS Award Nominees

Tickets are $50 and you can register at www.ihavewings.org. It includes a delicious hot lunch, swag bags, silent auction, Chinese auction, entertainment, shopping, jewelry exchange and lots more!
