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!

I Have Wings Spring Bling

The “I Have Wings Spring Bling” event is coming up and I seriously can’t wait! If you combine some of our favorite things to do… shopping, sipping, helping a great cause and getting super motivated to enjoy life to the fullest… that’s what this event has. There are a bunch of vendors to shop with, an AMAZING silent auction (seriously, tables and tables of really awesome stuff), the food is always delish, and the presentation and honoree video is always ugly-cry worthy. Honestly, this is a really great event and I know you’ll love it if you attend! Event details (and info if you’d like to nominate an honoree) are below! Hope to see you there!

27yo Breast Cancer Survivor Benefit Event Tonight!

The “Big C” never hits at a good time. But 27 years old is way, way too young.

I’m 27, so this one hits extremely close to home. Makes me realize you’re never immune, you’re never safe, from the grips of breast cancer.

Lauren Carr (who I’ve have the pleasure of meeting when shopping at Sara Benjamins) was recently diagnosed with breast cancer at the mere age of 27. Her friends, family and co-workers are holding a benefit event for her tonight. See below.

From what I understand, the treatments (and being out of work to recover) have taken a financial toll on Lauren. And money is the last thing this girl needs to worry about during her battle against cancer. Hope to see you there.
