Cinco de Mayo + Women Giving Back = Great fun for a great cause!

Early celebrations begin tonight for Cinco de Mayo as many of the committee members of the Great American Living Awards will be showing our support for #womengivingback tonight! Women Giving Back (WGB) is a HomeAid program that provides free clothing to women and children in Northern Virginia homeless shelters. Many women in the shelters are employed or attending school, and need professional clothing and accessories to improve their lives and the lives of their families. We provide the clothing free of charge to women with shopping vouchers provided by their case workers.

Tonight is the annual Cinco De Mayo celebration with tequila and wine tastings; where the energy level is high and the money raised has exceeded all expectations leading up to the fundraising event itself. It’s a thank you to their sponsors and friends and it’s going to be a great night of laughter, support and celebration for an organization that has wonderful initiatives.

Anyone is welcome to volunteer or donate, you can learn more here:  http://www.homeaidnova.org/in-our-community/women-giving-back/
