Fort Myers, FL, August 04, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- A group of businesses is putting some fun into summer with a Cosmopolitan Summer Party of Beauty and Charity to support Community Cooperative Ministries Incorporated (CCMI) on Thursday, August 12, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Bistro 41 at the Bell Tower Shops, Fort Myers.
As a prelude to CCMI’s highly-anticipated 5th Annual Becoming Cosmopolitan event this fall, Bistro 41, Opici Wine & Spirits, Grandeur Magazine and Plastic Surgeon Dr. Drew Kreegel will host the event as a kick-off and to raise funds for CCMI’s mission to feed the hungry this summer.
Guests can enter raffles for dazzling prize such as jewelry, dinners, facials and spa services, and cosmetic surgery procedures including Botox® and eyelash lengthener Latisse®. In addition, guests can cast a vote for their favorite designer “cosmo” to be the featured drink for the Becoming Cosmopolitan event.
Admission includes passed hors d’oeuvres and the four competing cosmopolitan tastings on the ballot for $25. All attendees will receive a free entry in a drawing for two complimentary tickets to the Becoming Cosmopolitan event.
All proceeds will benefit those in hunger through CCMI’s programs. For an additional opportunity to give back, CCMI will sell backpacks for $100 each, which will feed a child on the weekends during the school year.
Reservations are requested, please call Kreegel Aesthetic Surgery at 239-343-9777, or Bistro 41 at 239-466-4141.
CCMI is the umbrella agency for the Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry, Meals on Wheels, Community Montessori and Social and Homeless Services. CCMI serves Fort Myers and the greater Lee County area, including Bonita Springs, Cape Coral and Lehigh Acres. The Soup Kitchen serves a noontime meal six days a week to men, women and children in a traditional soup kitchen setting.
In addition, CCMI prepares and delivers nutritious packaged meals and beverages for the homebound hungry, offers a food pantry and mobile food pantry that provide emergency groceries to families in need, serves two nutritious meals a day for the children in their Montessori school and oversees a backpack program for local schoolchildren who would otherwise receive little to no food on weekends.
