IBSG raises $3,000 for the Children’s Home Society’s 1st Annual “Sunday with the Girls”
The showroom was filled with many professionals demonstrating their talent and donating their time. The ladies were lined up for hair and make-up tips, floral demonstrations, faux finishing lessons, belly dancing instructions, tae-kwon-do and karate lessons, personal training tips, a chiropractor was available for consultations and a psychic reader had the Ladies buzzing with stories. The raffle was a huge success with fabulous gifts donated by many generous people. Many thanks to Panera bread and My Favorite Muffin for supplying us with food and drinks. The children were a big help by hand decorating all the gift bags. We are all very thank-full to everyone who made this event a success. It’s such an important cause and our hopes are that next year’s event will raise even more money for the children.
