KUWC 4.19.2017

Now that we've all recovered from our FABULOUS Gala "A Night in Old Hollywood" (check out the pictures on our Facebook page); we have a few updates...

You have the opportunity to directly benefit out our beneficiary, Genesis Women's Shelter, through hands-on volunteering on Saturday, April 29th. That morning we will have the chance to serve breakfast and meet the women of the shelter who need our help the most. This will be a unique experience to meet the ladies and show we believe in their needs. 

Spots are limited and will be granted on a first come, first serve basis so sign up quickly! 

It seems like 2017 JUST began and we are already thinking about our 2017-2018 Cotillion year!

Keeping Up With Cotillion 1.19.2017 {Bachelor Edition 2.0}

Hello all! 

If this is your first time receiving this newsletter, welcome! Expect to receive one of these little numbers every other week. They’re generally filled with everything you need to know about life, love, and upcoming happy hours, along with volunteer opportunities and the occasional silly but well-intentioned pun.

Let’s do this.

WINTER DATE PARTY | Jan. 20 at Citizen | 8-10pm

Grab a guest and enjoy an evening (and an open bar tab) at Uptown’s new Citizen bar. It’s located in a little house next to Common Table. All members plus one (1) guest will have access to our bar tab from 8-10pm (so come early!). Nonmembers are welcome and can purchase tickets through our Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/winter-date-party-tickets-31188176676. I know you've asked so...dress code: nicer than your typical Friday night out but not quite winter formal (FYI Citizen dress code required, i.e. no sports wear). 

 TRINA TURK SHOPPING EVENT | Feb. 20 at Trina Turk 

20% of proceeds will be donated to our beneficiary, Genesis Women's Shelter. Members will also receive $75 off purchases of $350 or more. NO obligation to shop but come by to see everyone and support Genesis! 

73rd ANNUAL GALA & SILENT AUCTION | April 8 | The Carlisle Room

It’s never too early to start prepping for A Night in Old Hollywood but it is actually the proper time to start sending out invitations. If you've moved recently, please send Carolyn (cotillionclubmembership@gmail.com) your new address to make sure you get the invite.

Please continue to help us with our fundraising and send our Underwriting Chair, Eleanor Rosler, your contacts, addresses, and donation requests. Also, if you know of a biz that would be interested in becoming a corporate sponsor for a local non-profit (donations are tax deductible, y’all!), let us know!

DERVISH CLUB'S ANNUAL KICKOFF PARTY
