May 29th was our 6 Years with Seventeen Celebrations! Seventeen has been one of my most requested events since I had started cupsleeves and I'm so happy to have been able to finally host one!
The event was held at Riize Coffee Co. in Littleton, the same place as BamBam day. Just like BamBam day Chrissy, the owner, hooked us up with some delicious drinks. Team Rocket (a butterscotch latte) and the Oh My! Berry Blast! (a strawberry lemonade). Aside from the delicious drinks there was a special photo area, music videos , freebies, cupsleeves, and as a special treat we had our very first vendor the amazing Rippanagaby!!
For this event I went pastel colors with diamonds scattered about - really trying to slip into that diamond life - and I think it worked! The event was so fun and special we even ran out of supplies!!
Just like BamBam day we chose to support of our local AAPI community and collect donations for an Asian Non-Profit in Colorado Springs: The Golden Lotus Foundation. This organization strives to "celebrate tradition and inspire passion for Asian heritage through community resources, education programs, and expand support for culture projects" as well as is working to build more community spaces for the AAPI community in Colorado Springs. Thanks to everyone's generosity we were able to raise $220 to donate!
To help encourage donations we were offering a special raffle basket with the Going Seventeen magazine, a adorable mask and charm donated by Rippanagaby, and a $25 gift card from Angelo's CDs and More! A big Congratulations to Sadie S. for winning this prize!!!
Thank you so much to everyone who came and supported me and my events once again! I couldn't continue to do this without you all! See you all at the next one!
