Spreading PINK awareness

Corriher Lipe played China Grove on Monday night. They wore PINK to show spread awareness. One team wore pink jerseys. The other wore white with pink numbers. The cheerleaders wore pink ribbons, and the boys wore pink socks or shoestrings.

Even the gym walls were covered in pink ribbons! It is inspiring to see younger generations take action in fighting to find a cure. That's why we wanted to share! To see more images from the Corriher Lipe vs. China Grove game, click here. Enjoy and spread the PINK!

Girls Night Out at C.C. & Company Salon [02.05.10]

C.C. & Company hosted our first Girls Night Out fundraiser for 2010 at their salon and spa last Friday. Mother nature wasn't on our side. It was extremely cold and rainy but we still had a good turnout.

We raised a little over $100 on raffles alone.

Plain & Fancy Catering was kind enough to donate some appetizers for the ladies. DELICIOUS!

All the ladies took part in the pampering: hair styling, make-up touch up, mini manicure, and massages. After they were finished, it was time to be photographed! Here's a sneak peek at the profile images...

We will post our favorite image of each lady on our facebook fan page at www.facebook.com/IPbyKG. All the images from Friday evening will be posted on Friday, Feb 19th at http://www.irresistibleportraits.com/. You can click on client images and enter girlsnightout (all lowercase) as your password. We're offering a 50% discount on our studio pricelist for any orders placed from the Girls Night Out images!

Our first fundraiser for 2010 was successful. We raised just over $500 and we're looking forward to the next few weeks. We've got two events - "A Taste of Dream Dinners" on Monday, March 8th at the Kannapolis Dream Dinners location in Cloverleaf AND The Brow Lounge Grand Opening on Saturday, March 13th in Cornelius, NC. Keep an eye on our facebook fan page (www.facebook.com/focusedonacure) and calendar for info about these events.
