I don't usually cover charity events, but every woman I talked to about Step Up Women's Network
(not to mention my co-worker, who was on the board before she became a mom) vouched for their good deeds, and all-around positive influence on young women.
So, even though it's scheduled for the same night as the big Derby meeting
(Nov.10, Our Mother of Good Counsel), let me draw your attention to their upcoming Red Carpet Boutique
at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
According to the Step Up presser:
“Our theme will include red carpets throughout, velvet ropes and butlers passing out hor d'oeuvres by Star Chef Jeff Armstrong on silver platters. An anticipated 500 + guests, including celebrities, media, socialites and trend-setters will walk the red carpet into a world of glamour and prestige. Guests will shop more than 40 cutting-edge designers, nibble on hor d'oeuvres, sip complimentary cocktails by Fiji, Izze and Jake's Fault Wine , enjoy music from L.A.'s hottest deejays, unwind at our plush mobile spa, and receive complimentary cosmetic, health and wellness make-overs.”
Sounds like a full evening. Of course you could
swing by the Derby meeting before the Boutique, thereby killing two activism birds with one stone, and appreciably pushing your kharma over into the "good" range.
