About GLAM It Up For Charity
About 120 people attended our first GLAM dinner (I think!) mostly friends, and friends-of-friends. It was the most number of people Neil had ever hosted at Onyx, he had to rent extra plates, cutlery and chairs to accommodate everyone – it was a great first night. That night we raised $3,080 for the YWCA Encore program, a pool based gentle exercise program for women who have had breast cancer. They had recently lost their funding, and GLAM It Up For Charity was able to pay to keep it going for another year! Hurrah!
Michelle and I hosted this dinner as a way to give back – and have a fun night out with our girlfriends. It is a great excuse to gather your girlfriends together for a good cause.
And how GLAM has grown!
Thankfully, I don’t ‘do’ GLAM on my own. There are many people behind the scenes who help me each year, and I am very grateful for their generous support of me and of GLAM. Each year, I am blown away by the kindness and generoisity of people – people who come along, people who help me gather great prizes, businesses who donate prizes, friends who help me stuff goodie bags, print prize lists and more (big love to Sal, Kym, Jo, Jess , Leisa, Kate, Tamara, Michelle and more!). SACHA DRAKE is always a great supporter of GLAM, making me always feel extra glam in one of her beautiful dresses. Thank you Sacha!
The event has grown and adapted over the years, but is still a great opportunity to bring together a fantastic group of people and support a worthy cause.
I work hard in the background to keep the GLAM ticket price low. I think a lot of people would like to support and attend charity events but can’t afford the $250+ ticket price.
