Greensboro, NC, July 29, 2010 --( It's a party with a purpose! Food, wine, shopping and sisterhood - it’s all part of skirt! Magazine Greensboro’s signature fundraiser, Pretty in Pink. Last year’s inaugural event having over 500 items donated, skirt! raised nearly $4,000 for the Moses Cone Women’s Only Mammography Scholarship Fund, which provide mammograms locally to uninsured women. There are the same enjoyable elements at this year’s event like free massages, free food, free wine tastings and tasty treats, chance to win fabulous door prizes and a variety of cheeses by Cabot Creamery. This year’s newest addition will be fun, informative speaches from our sponsors, Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital, Kotis Properties, and Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery.

At the second annual Pretty in Pink expo, guests will have the chance to win cool door prizes and bid on silent auction items like a free night’s stay at a luxurious hotel, a fabulous piece of jewelry or a complete makeover from area salons. Or maybe they’ll walk away with one of 100 handbags donated by Creative Containers filled with even more donated goodies they bought at a fraction of the total value. All that and more await visitors at 1410 Westover Terrace Indoor Suite 102 & 103, Westover Gallery of Shops in Greensboro from 10 am till 4 pm, Saturday Sept. 25th.
