The cat is out of the bag! This morning on South East Radio, details of the ‘Best of Wexford from Head to Toe’ event were announced – you can listen back to the podcast here, (skip to 54 mins in). I’m so excited to finally share the details with you all as I know it’s something you will absolutely love. The event is being organised by and held in aid of the Wexford Rape Crisis Centre. It will take place in Clayton Whites Hotel on Sunday October 1st 2017 from 2pm – 6pm. Keep reading to find out all of the details and how to buy your tickets.
A little bit of background first…
A couple of months ago I was asked to help the Wexford Rape Crisis Centre with their next fundraiser. Of course, I said yes as I am only delighted to help charitable causes in any way that I can. The charity provide much needed services and support for men, women and young people across county Wexford from their centre on Clifford Street, Wexford Town. Since it began in 1995, they have been a source of confidential counselling and support for survivors. I won’t go in to too much detail but you can find everything you need to know on their website; wexfordrapecrisis.com . Their service is in such demand that current funding doesn’t cover the cost of keeping the centre open. This led the committee to look in to other methods of fundraising and they came up with the ‘Best of Wexford’ concept.
Best of Wexford from Head to Toe
‘The Best of Wexford from Head to Toe’ will do exactly what it says on the tin. The event will be held in one of the counties most popular hotels, Clayton Whites Hotel in the heart of Wexford town. Guests will be treated to music and bubbly on arrival from 2pm on the first Sunday in October. The main function room will be pop-up shop heaven with over 30 businesses showcasing what they do best and with products and services for guests to shop on the day. Everything from fashion and beauty, to health and wellbeing, food and art, jewellery and music, crafts and fitness will be represented.
The Main Stage
Celebrity chef, Kevin Dundon will take to the stage for a cookery demonstration which will be sure to go down a treat. Cooking is definitely not my strong point so I’m hoping to pick up some tips myself! After the cooking demo, I will be on stage to show you how to build the best winter wardrobe. I will style 3 looks centred around key pieces for the season from some of Wexford’s most coveted boutiques.
Samantha Kelly, the Tweeting Goddess will be there to tweet up a storm and shout about the best social media posts on the hashtag #BestOfWexford so make sure to tweet, snap, share and post online if you’re there. There are plenty of raffle prizes and an amazing door prize to be won also.
Could You be Our Makeover Winner?
The finale of the show will centre around the winner of a competition that was run on South East Radio. We were looking for one lucky person that deserves a total transformation! This includes a completely new hairstyle from Salon Diva; make up application from the top make up artist from Sam McCauleys Chemist, nails and eyebrow shaping from The Nail Boutique and I will style the winner in an outfit from two of the most stylish stores in town; Si Jolie and Pamela Scott. We really wanted to treat a deserving winner to this makeover – perhaps they haven’t been having the best year or they are always looking after everyone else and not indulging in any ‘me-time’. Hannah was the winner of the competition on DriveTime on South East Radio and I can’t wait for everyone to see her new look!
Where Can I Buy Tickets?
Tickets for the ‘Best of Wexford from Head to Toe’ are just €10 and available from the reception at Clayton Whites Hotel right now. All of the proceeds will go to the Wexford Rape Crisis Centre. It will be a fantastic, fun-filled afternoon so round up a group of your girl-friends, mam, sisters, cousins, the girls from work – whoever you want – and make a day of it. Get dolled up and enjoy the pop-up shops, the on stage entertainment and relax for a couple of hours. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of you there.
