Gifts & Garters Teams Up With Toys For Tots
Hi everyone, Pixie o'Kneel here...
I have some really exciting news to share with y'all!
When Bewitching Burlesque partnered up with Through The Looking Glass Studio to bring you Gifts & Garters, we had two clear goals in mind. The first goal was to bring DFW a Burlesque show and shopping experience like no other. Our second goal was to give back to the community.
Bewitching Burlesque and Through The Looking Glass have been very fortunate this year and we decided we wanted to share out fortune with others. In order to accomplish one of our goals, we have teamed up with Toys For Tots to collect toys for kids in need.
There will be a collection station at the door, complete with Marines (in uniform!!) to collect your generous donations.
Please bring a new, unwrapped toy when you come to the show.
The first 25 ladies who donate a toy, will receive a gift bag with goodies from ALL of the Vendors at Gifts & Garters. Ladies, these will not be your run of the mill gift bags, there will be some serious loot in those bags!
Don't worry if you can't be one of the first 25 ladies in the door, or you're not a lady, we have a deal for everyone else too. If you make a toy donation to Toys for Tots, you will receive a $5 discount on the door price of admission. Instead of $20, you get the pre-sale price of $15.
Please remember there are a lot of families in need this year. We were told by the Marines they expect the requests for help will be greater this year than in the previous years due to the economy and the current rate of unemployment.
I am also personally asking asking you to remember that kids of ALL ages need to have a happy holiday. When you're making your donation selections, please remember the tweens and teens too.
Let's work together to help the United States Marines Corps bring some holiday cheer to those who need a helping hand.
Talk to y'all again soon!
