GiGi: The Greater Reading Gala

Earlier this month one of my favorite local non-profit organizations, the Greater Reading Young Professionals, hosted their annual GiGi gala. The gala is a fundraiser to benefit GRYP and provide financial support for their year-round objectives. The main goals of the organization are to improve the Greater Reading area and provide career support for local young professionals (like me!). 

Each year the event is hosted in an unoccupied building. This year it was at a vacant Burlington Coat Factory space, thus the mannequins sprinkled throughout the event decor.

Sorrelli Jewelry was a sponsor of the event (proud to call it my place of work!). We had a "sparkle spot" where guests could try on our most statement-pieces and get glamourous for a night. We even gave away 100+ stud earrings to the VIP guests! There were a  lot of happy ladies that night...

What's the use of having lots of sparkle if you're not going to make it glitter on the dance floor? Of course, where there are Sorrelli girls, there is dancing.

And some of the gorgeous ladies on our team, the Sorrelli Sales & Marketing Assistants:

And this is what I wore to GiGi, a little black dress and lots of jewels! I'm glad I got involved in GRYP and was able to make it out for a night on the town, it's great to meet other people who are career-oriented and want to do something great for their community. I felt lucky to be a part of it!
