Well, it’s been ages since I’ve posted, please forgive me tweekers. It’s been hectic for a while now and I finally have some time to write a legit post to inform all of you of all the chicness that’s been happening. Between actually working, and handling adulthood I’ve been kind of out if it. I’m sure many of you checked out Melissa’s post detailing our first ever GQ Night. Hopefully next year we’ll get an even bigger turnout.
Moving on to matters of the present lets get real here tweekers. Being chic is not only about keeping up to date with the latest trends, but also about giving back to the community. Nothing says chic like a good charitable cause. Recently I met someone who works at a local thrift store that I frequent and she gave me the tea about a fundraiser she’s put together. It’s equal parts fashion and charity, with an all around dose of chicness.
The event is called Art Angels, and what it is, is an event to raise money and donate art supplies for a program called Through Angels Eyes. The program is an art therapy program for children with terminal illnesses and their families. As best stated by TAE “Sadly some children will never be old enough or healthy enough to go to school, and make countless works of art for the refrigerator. For those families (Through Angles Eyes) art therapy program steps in to ensure that each child becomes the artist in one gentle way or another.”
The event will be held at Stigma Tattoo Bar in downtown Orlando on April 21st, 2012. All that is asked is to make a monetary, or art supply donation. When you donate you will be given a raffle ticket, and there will be prizes given throughout the night donated by local businesses. Among other festivities that will be going on will be live body painting, a live art show, and two Dechoes Resale fashion shows.
Trust me this is an even worth going to. I got to preview the clothing that will be shown, and it’s everything. Think Absolutley Fabulous with a punk edge. Very Edina and Patsy meets the Sex Pistols.
For those of you who can’t attend an event unless alcohol is involved then you’ll be happy to hear about the drink specials. There wll be $2 Smirnoff specialty shots, given out by the body painted models. Half of the proceeds will be donated to the art therapy program, so your Lohanism is actually being encouraged.
The fundraiser begins at 9pm with catering from 9-11 and ends at 2am. It will be held at Stigma Tattoo Bar in downtown Orlando and is 21+ only. Stigma is located at:
17 S Orange Ave, Orlando FL 32801
If you cannot be in attendance you can make contributions to the program via their website. ThroughAngelsEyes.org
And none of this would be possible without the vision of Sierra Missed who put the event together.
Remember to give back tweekers. It’s our duty as trendsetters to have people follow in our good doing. We are the messiah. Or not, whatever.
That is all.
