glam bomb 4 + giveaway

It seems we have all been touched by cancer, in one way or another. Lately, I keep hearing that dreadful, feared and too-often heard c word. I’ve lost loved ones. I know loved ones bravely battling the disease as I type. And, having worked at The Children’s Hospital, Colorado, I met countless of families and young children who fought for the chance to live their lives. There is something amazing and special about the patients and staff on the Oncology floor. I met children there that forever touched my life…and although I only spent a short amount of time with them, I still think about them to this day.

As we continue to make leaps and bounds with research, more and more people will be cured. But, as people fight for their lives today, and for those who have conquered it, the opportunity to really live and feel a sense of hope again is so important emotionally and physically. Which is why organizations like First Descents, a Denver nonprofit that provides free outdoor adventure programs for young adult cancer fighters and survivors, is so essential…and why we wanted to write this post today.

The Perfect Petal is to host Glam Bomb 4, a private party that showcases independent jewelry design while giving back to a great cause, on April 16th in Denver. This season’s event will benefit First Descents. 100% of ticket sales {$25 general admission and $50 VIP}, 10% of purchases and all live auction donations will go directly to First Descents.

All you Colorado folks have the opportunity to go to this fabulous event to give back, and if you don’t live here, you can always find ways to get involved. You can help send young cancer patients and survivors to a camp for an adventure of a lifetime {whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, and surfing}. My words don’t do it justice, but this video just might.

Guests will enjoy cocktails and appetizers, music from DJ Manos and shopping among 21 local and national independent designers. Featured designers include Lindsay Bloom, Campbell, Dean Davidson, Christy Lea Payne, Cynthia Rybakoff, and more.

A feel-good party that truly gives back with a top-secret location…and throw in some fabulous shopping…I’m sold. This year’s location can accommodate more than 200 guests, making this the largest anticipated turnout since the inception of the event series in 2011. So, make it a ladies night out, and buy tickets. And for all you gents out there, you are invited to a rooftop reception with cigar and whiskey tasting.
