Soroptimist Spring Bling!
I had a wonderful time at last Saturday's Spring Bling! luncheon put on by Soroptimist International Hood River! This annual event was started last year to celebrate SIHR's 60th year anniversary of service to women and girls of Hood River. A new twist this year was the addition of three custom jewelry vendors who displayed their creations for purchase - hence the "Bling!" in the title! Showcasing their glittering bling were Jewelry by Cari (ahem - the photo used in her Mother's Day promo shows Cari and her adorable daughter, Stella - created by yours truly!), Pearl Girl Tags, and Tricia Losee for Silpada Designs. The fashion show was such a hit last year, we HAD to have our local style mavens back! Showcasing their latest designs were Ananas Boutique, Flow Day Spa, Frolik, Melika, Outside Baby and Parts + Labor.
As a member of SIHR, my contribution to the event was the set up of a mini-studio where I created portraits for mothers and daughters as a fundraiser for SIHR's charitable programs. Many thanks to all the women who participated and helped make this luncheon a FUNdraising success!
