All About the Bag Benefit {+ giveaway!}

Did you know 150,000 Clevelanders live in poverty? That’s a staggering number. As I sit here writing this blog, after eating 3 wholesome meals today (and every day for that matter), looking at my hubby and dog in the comfort of our heated home, it’s a reminder I tend to take these things for granted all too often.

Through my career at Hyland, creator of OnBase, I am continuously encouraged to give back to our local community. I often participate in our programs like Volunteer Time Off, Adopt-A-Family and our annual Summer of Service. However, there is always more we can do.

Enter the All About the Bag fashion event benefiting the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland.

All About the Bag is a fashionable evening full of ‘fancy frocks, fun and fundraising!’

The mission of the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland is to reduce hunger by providing food and linkages to other vital services for hungry people, especially children and families, and by actively participating in a coordinated community response to people in need.

Now that’s an event and a mission I can get behind. And let’s be honest, I love a fun night out.

The details:

WHEN: Thursday, February 25, 2016 from 6-10PM

WHERE: Executive Caterers of Landerhaven

TICKETS: Premier Package: $150.00; General Admission: $75.00. Purchase here. {The event sold out in 2015!}

If you haven’t guessed by now, I have two tickets to giveaway! You can enter two ways:

1. Post a comment on this blog sharing one way you give back to the community. (note: only one comment per person).

2. Tweet the following: I want to win tickets to All About the Bag benefiting the @HungerNetworkGC from @dawgpndgirl: #ThisIsCLE (note: you can tweet once per day but are required to comment on this post after each tweet!)

You can enter now until Friday, January, 22, 2016.

I’m running this giveaway over a month from the event because we are all busy people. My calendar, like yours I’m sure, fills up very quickly.

Good luck and my mom and I hope to see you there!

Disclosure: I am friends with members from the Hunger Network and their event board. I was asked to promote the event in exchange for two tickets to attend the event and two tickets to giveaway to the event. All opinions are mine.
