Tomorrow the fabulous ladies of WIN are gathering for Spa & Cupcakes. I’m busy on a deadline, so I am still reveling in last Tuesday’s fabulous event.
I splurged on a professional styling and then traveled in style. 😉
Here’s the Magnificent Mile.
Water Tower Place is home to a Lego store.
I did my shoe switcheroo by the go-to destination of little girls.
Here we are!
The home of a candy museum.
Fashionable candy wrappers.
A licorice painting.
Then I set up the auction table, which barely had room for all the donated goodness.
We took turns greeting guests.
Toasted to our good fortune.
Nibbled on fabulous treats by FIG Catering.
Listened to inspirational stories.
Terese Lang McDonald shares the Candyality story
Brenda Palms Barber shares the beginning of Sweet Beginnings
We admired each other’s glamorous outfits (some accessorized by Lia Sophia).
Our fabulous and glamorous WIN founders
Bidding wars broke out over certain auction pieces.
We met our goal! Sweet Beginnings received all proceeds.
A chocolate buffet sweetened the evening.
The Jelly Bean guessing game brought exclamations of joy.
But everyone walked away a winner with a goodie bag.
There were ‘red carpet’ moments.
Eventually security asked us to wrap it up.

ADDENDUM: As of March 10, 2013, I no longer support the WIN Board and its actions. However, I do support small business, women-owned businesses, and the gracious hosts of past WIN events.
