She’s My Hero- May

It’s time to meet Tiffany who is representing May in our She’s My Hero Calendar. Tiffany is a 34 year old, hardworking, independent, single mom of two sweet sons! She is also a full time RN who works really hard taking care of others. Tiffany is determined to raise her boys to become incredible people. We love her unbreakable spirit and determination!  When times were tough, Tiffany found strength in a stranger with her own inspiring story. Her hero is also a single mother who has been through a lot, persisted, and came out on top. We are so grateful to Vanity Salon for styling this strong woman.

At the She’s My Hero Calendar Launch Party, you’ll get to see some of the beautiful and professional rentals from Eventworks. We can’t wait for you to see the lounge area also from their company and Silent Auction at the event! What should you wear to the event at Boone Hall Plantation? We are planning for business casual, but you are most welcome to come exactly as you are. Feel free to match the event colors which are: amethyst, plum, and silver. If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, GET THEM HERE.

She’s My Hero-March

It’s time to meet the She’s My Hero representative for March with  special thanks to Vanity Salon for styling Jenifer as her hero. Jenifer is one busy lady! She is a LPN full time for dialysis patients and is in school full time to become a RN. Jennifer loves spending time with her husband on the rare occasion she has free time. She has even worked in Alzheimer hospice care. Jenifer has a huge heart and is exactly the type of person you would want caring for you when you’re sick.  Here’s a hint about her hero… she gets to see her hero almost everyday!

To find out who her hero is be sure to GET YOUR TICKETS for our fundraiser: the She’s My Hero Calendar Launch Party on October 10th from 6-9pm at Boone Hall. All proceeds from the silent auction and the She’s My Hero Calendar sales go directly to the Center for Women.

 

 

She’s My Hero- February

As we gear up for our She’s My Hero Project fundraiser for the Center for Women, we will be posting here a few times a week to introduce you to our She’s My Hero Contest Winners who will be in the calendar.

A huge thank you to Vanity Salon for styling her hair and makeup for this photo shoot. For February, we like you to meet Patricia. She is a 31 year old native South Carolinian. She is also one hard working lady! Patricia works multiple jobs and sometimes more than one per day! But she wouldn’t have it any other way! It keeps her busy and life entertaining. She is a diver with the nickname of Ducky the Diver because she was born on Donald Duck’s birthday. She absolutely LOVES animals especially her 2 dogs! Finally, here’s a hint about her hero… she is a Charleston local that you’ve probably seen frequently on tv or in the news.

To find out, be sure to Get Your Tickets to the She’s My Hero Calendar Launch Party on October 10th from 6-9pm at Boone Hall. All proceeds from the silent auction and the She’s My Hero Calendar sales go directly to the Center for Women.

She’s My Hero Sponsors

To celebrate women, their diversity and empowerment, mellBella Photography created the She’s My Hero Project to raise funds for the Center for Women.

Back in March for Women’s History Month, we held the She’s My Hero Contest where we asked local women to tell us who their heroes were.  The contest winners received a photoshoot from mellBella styled as their hero. Also, each winner received a gift basket filled with donations from local businesses.

The photos from the contest winners will be in the 2019 She’s My Hero Calendar. ALL sales of the Calendar will benefit the Center for Women directly. To be included in the calendar, all sponsors must have all information submitted by August 31st. Silent Auction donations should be submitted by September 28th.

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:
