November 15, 2007

The hottest ticket in town last November 15 was the pre-opening benefit for The Women's Fund of the Capital Region at Sephora in Colonie Center. A sell-out (with nearly 600 guests coming through the doors in three hours), this special evening of beauty for a great cause is still generating "I should've been there" buzz.

A cool $24,000 was raised---thanks to the generosity of supporters of The Women's Fund and Sephora's donation of ten percent of sales during the evening, plus a surprise bonus of another ten percent from opening-day sales.

The Women's Fund raised many new friends that evening as well from fashionistas to the "just curious." They included professionals and moms at home... past, present and future executives... students in high school and beyond. The Women’s Fund united women for not only an evening of fun, but also allowed attendees to put their money toward something they all believe in.

Our deepest thanks to all who made the event a smashing success and to our friends at Sephora and Colonie Center. Please visit them and show your appreciation for helping us enhance the lives of women and girls in the Capital Region.
