Events: Cocktails & Costumes and A Salvation Army Tea Party

First off, thank you to everyone for all the support and kind words on the launch ofย  Lex * What * Wear, I’m going to speak for both of us when I say it really means a lot! Alex is going to do amazing stuff and I’m really looking forward to seeing what she puts together.

Today I wanted to share a couple local events that I hope some of you will support next weekend.

First up is Cocktails & Costumes brought to you by the Actors Theatre of Louisville’s GO Board. I love a good costume party and for this one you can go wild and pick whatever costume suits your fancy. The party is held in the theatre’s Costume Shop and DJ Jason Clark (from Lebowskifest) will be on hand along side delicious food, drinks and a photo booth {i loooove photo booths}.

I heard about this event from Melissa at (who I met at a very fun event last week, more on that to come) who is on the Generation One Board which is a “group of young professionals dedicated to helping Actors develop their young professional audience and fundraising in support of the theatre.” They only have a couple fundraising events a year and this one is the biggie! Takes place next Saturday nigh and tickets are $10. Mark your calendars!

Here’s all the details:

Next up is a new event for the ladies from The Salvation Army. A Salvation Army Tea will be next Saturday morning and will hopefully become a signature event for the organization. The Salvation Army has a strong history of amazing woman volunteering their time to make a difference.

The Salvation Army Louisville Area Command wants to start celebrating that rich tradition with “A Salvation Army Tea.” This event will highlight the role of women in The Salvation Army and give local women in the community a chance to learn more about the organization and how they can get involved.

In its first year, the event will feature a tea service with savory and sweet treats, a silent auction, music, speakers and a chance for women to mingle and spend time together. Why Tea? Well London is The Salvation Army’s birthplace so tea and crumpets it is! Tickets are $35.

Here’s all the details!
