As a finale, pregginistas rocked spunky and sparkly outfits by local designers, and then the_youngest girls of the party showcased Fall-Winter line of “My Bougie Baby”.

Pinkalicious is contageous

18 Oct

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Saturday, October 15, whole third floor of “Room&Board” (about 9,000 sq.feet) was full of pink. Victoria Kann, the author of “Pinkalicious”, was visiting from New York for book reading and signing. Sea of babies, toddlers and kids was bestirring around, sipping on milk, crunching on pretzels and carrots… climbing beds and chairs… decorating pumpkins… and, of course, listening to Victoria reading the book. The line of pinkalicious  fans seemed never-ending, but attendants were very patient. No wonder, Victoria paid personal attention to everyone, – they talked about outfits, and Halloween decor, and then she added individual message to the book – of course, in pink ink! Getting such experience (including picture with famous author and illustrator from New York!) would definitely make anyone’s day.

Enjoy 209 pictures (impossible to stop when there is so much cuteness and laughter around)

02 Jul

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

One of the most trusted charities of the Nation, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is about to get yet another support from DC philanthropy army. On September 10, at 1 o’clock in Neiman Marcus Chevy Chase, 5th Annual Fashion benefit will take place, featuring looks from *Giorgio Armani* Fall 2011 RTW Collection! Tickets will be $150 and will include lunch, seat at the fashion show and fabulous swag bag.

Lia’s restaurant accommodated event Committee Kick-Off Cocktail Hour in its private event room on June 28. Event co-chairs Terri Carr, Amy Bischoff and April Jones Firoozabadi shared the importance of raising funds for this remarkable organization. St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, so no child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay. The daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.6 million, primarily covered by public contributions, which is why it is crucial to raise funds on events like this.

Please save the date and invite your friends to attend the event so this one of a kind organization continuously receives its support.

Every kid’s a rock star rocked The Ritz

05 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

On Sunday night, February 27, Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner was lit and noisy with 2011 “Every kid’s a rock star” fundraiser. This event benefited Inova Fairfax Hospital for children. More than 300 families, donors, physicians and Inova team members attended this family- and kid- friendly event.

This unique event in the finest location featured live entertainment by nationally recognized “A+ Dropouts” and DJ Jamie Biden. Kids could enjoy numerous interactive games and activities, such as Mega Make-it Mix (to mix your own songs), Dimmer the Robot (the one with “smart” hands), Immersitron technology, Guitar Hero, and DJ Hero.

Along fashionably but contemporary dressed people there were fairy-tale dressed ladies – Miss Virginia 2010 Caitlin Uze and Miss American sweetheart 2011 Megan Lawless. Kids flanked them both and wouldn’t let go, it is like drem come true – to play ball with “real princesses”! Washington Wizards girls were also huge attraction but for older kids and adults, photos with them were taken throwout the evening consistently.

The amount of food reminded of Thanksgiving feast, and beautifully decorated tables only added to that feeling. Silent auction table (enormous size oval) was not unattended ever, no wonder, there were so many desired items from sponsors for a bargain price! Photobooth seemed to be tremendous hit – there was never-ending line, and, given the faces leaving with happiest expressions, well worth waiting.

What we can’t wait – is next year to attend 2012 “Every kid’s a rock star”, to benefit Inova – Hospital only for Children.

Enjoy the photos here and don’t forget to see whole gallery.
