Recap: Cocktails, Conversations, and Coats

KB's Journey

Lovely Ladies: Audarshia of 312 Dining Diva, Patrice of Afrobella, DJ Niena Drake, and Aramide of The Sassy Peach

As a perfect way to end 2011, Red Pump partnered with Swish Dreams, Afrobella, and Blogging While Brown to host a coat drive for U Can Chicago. You know that I love to party for a purpose, and the coat drive was just that. Thanks to DJ Niena Drake, we were able to host the event at Red Kiva and enjoyed complimentary Alizé cocktails to start off the night. I had a great time meeting fellow bloggers, supporters, and just all around great folks. We collected over 50 coats and bags of sweaters, hats, scarves, gloves, and more. When I dropped all of the items at the U Can offices, I felt like Santa! You know…if he drove an Altima.

Below are a few of the photos from the night. You can find the rest on the Red Pump Facebook page. Thank you to all who donated items and to those who came out!
