Reason #1,678 why I've been neglecting my blog lately:
My fellow YWCA board members and I have been busy little bees preparing for the annual "Chocolate Carnivale: A Celebration of Successful Young Women" event. It's being held this Friday and will feature (FREE!) chocolate items from SLC's finest restaurant and bakeries, (FREE!) live entertainment and a (FREE!) good time to be had by all.
We'll also have a silent auction for fabulous items, a cash bar for delicious drinks and a red carpet. Come on, Utahns, when was the last time you were able to set foot on the red carpet and smile big for the paparazzi?
We'll be honoring three SLC women who have excelled personally, professionally and philanthropically and are under age 35.
Join us at 7 p.m. at the YWCA at 322 East 300 South. All proceeds from the evening will go to support the Y's many programs, including the domestic violence shelter, teen mom home and violence & racism prevention programs.
