Last week, we celebrated our monthly Third Thursday After-Work Party with a record crowd at Majid’s. In lieu of green beer – it was St. Patrick’s day – guests enjoyed Collingwood Canadian Whisky, a new beverage from Brown-Forman, and free appetizers from Majid’s.
We appreciate everyone who made it out, including our networking sponsor, Northwestern Mutual.
Join us at the next Third Thursday After-Work Party on April 21 at a location to be announced.
We cover a ton of parties and galas, so it’s always refreshing to attend a brand-new charity bash. You can rank Wrapped in Red 2011 as a fete we hope to see return in 2012.
Not only was the inaugural Red Cross gala a delight, but it’s less expensive companion, the Red Lounge – which began later in the evening – offered a high-energy, enjoyable atmosphere with a well-staffed bar, DJ Fluid spinning the latest club tunes and access to The Atlanta Allstars in the main ballroom. Kudos to Lisa Cofer and the rest of the Wrapped in Red committee for organizing a top notch night.
This year’s Runway for the Roses fashion event begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 24, at The Kentucky Center. The evening includes a fashion show presented by Dillard’s along with shopping opportunities from local vendors. Tickets range from $50 to $75 and will be available at the door. All proceeds benefit The Center for Women and Families.
