Facebook Party

Friday, we hosted our 2nd IP Facebook Party AKA Girls Night Out! We had a HUGE response and we were very satisfied with the amount of money that we raised for Focused on a Cure's Avon Walk team - Digital Divas. We raised over $1,100 in about 3 hours!

We had a great collection of vendors and volunteers from: Dream Dinners, Sugar & Spice Sweet Treats, B's Purses, Essential Bodywear, Mary Kay, Shear Image, C.C. & Company, and Scentsy. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE that volunteered their time and effort to help us raise as much money as we could!

We've gotten a lot of love on Facebook since Friday and wanted to share it with you!
