She's My Hero for blog

She’s My Hero Project Announcement Video

It’s been a dream of ours for a long time to create a great fundraiser to celebrate and support women in our community. We didn’t want to do it alone because together we can make an even bigger difference in our world. So, we created the She’s My Hero Project to raise funds for the Center for Women. We chose the Center for Women as our charity because they truly help women succeed personally and professionally through education, skill building, networking, and much more. In addition to raising funds, we also want to raise awareness about their programs to help even more women. Check out the video below for our big announcement from our appearance on Lowcountry Live:

LuLa Roe Fundraiser to Benefit the Center for Women

Back in February of this year, we got to help celebrate, fund raise, and support local women. We stepped out of our studio photographed the dance floor, silent auction, and fashion show. The theme was Fashion through the Decades.  ALL proceeds went directly to the Center for Women.  The Center for Women advocates and educates South Carolina women to help them succeed in their professional, community, and personal lives. They have training workshops, networking opportunities, mentoring programs, and so much more. Check them out!

Around 60 local and traveling LuLa Roe consultants came together to donate their time and money for this awesome cause. Each consultation even donated an entire outfit for the Silent Auction, and several companies donated gift certificates, food, service, time, and awesome additions to the complete each LuLa Roe outfit.

Thank you to all the companies and individuals for your donations and time that raised a total of $7,707 for the Center for Women.
