Saying Yes to the Dress – and the Tutu – for a Good Cause

July 10, 2014 at 2:30 pm Leave a comment

I want to take this opportunity to thank two of our member companies for allowing me and our Food Drive Committee Chair, Dale Holder of Apartment Finder, to embarrass ourselves in exchange for significant donations to Second Harvest Food Bank of NWNC.

Today Dale and I will be at the main entrance to Robinhood Court Apartments and Villas at 4 p.m. wearing “prom dresses” in exchange for a $550 donation to Second Harvest, plus $5 for everyone who stops in to visit while we’re there. In my case the only dress that would fit is something that a typical high school girl’s grandmother might wear to church on Sunday so we’ll call it a prom-ish dress, but Dale is sure to be bedazzling.

And I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank Blue Ridge Companies and their Burke Ridge Crossing community for donating $250 to Second Harvest last month in exchange for me wearing a tutu, a tiara and high heels, having their corporate slogan painted on my back and then jumping into the Burke Ridge Crossing pool.

Many of our member companies are very active in our food drive and do an amazing job raising funds, food and awareness for Second Harvest, but I just wanted to take a quick second to thank these companies for so enthusiastically throwing me and Dale under the proverbial bus for a great cause:)

If you’d like to get involved in our food drive, or would like to make a donation online, you can find out everything you need to know at our food drive website at www.helpsecondharvest.com.
