Girlz with Glam Partners with Sushe + Shrimp for a Holiday Event
First Annual Toy Drive and Trunk Show Extravaganza
DC girl empowerment organization, Girlz with Glam, is kicking off the holiday season giving back to less fortunate on Saturday, November 14 from 3 to 7 p.m. at Nehemiah Cooperative in Columbia Heights, Washington D.C. In collaboration with Philadelphia-based boutique Sushe + Shrimp and Bright Beginnings, Girlz with Glam will be hosting an evening of fall and winter fashion trends, a glam booth, sweet treats and fun all in one!
Girlz with Glam is also accepting donations for their yearly program. Started in 2014, CEO and founder Angelica Bowman launched her program in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club and Rita Bright Family and Youth Center in Washington, D.C. Her program targets girls ages 10 to 18 to provide creative interactive learning experiences designed to build self-esteem and strong leadership skills.
All toy donations will be contributed to Bright Beginnings, a nationally-accredited child and family development center that offers a bright start for homeless infants, toddlers and preschoolers and their families. Bright Beginnings serves about 162 children every day whose families are living in crisis shelters or transitional housing.
