Pink Jams is about to take over DC this October and you are going to want to be there! October is Breast Cancer awareness month. Ladies, let’s get out there and ‘save our’, well you know the saying.
Christa Floresca is the brain child behind Pink Jams and has teamed up with Hard Rock Café, the Lifetime channel and the fabulous and effervescent Christian Siriano and more during the month of October to make quite the unforgettable splash in DC.
Christa started Pink Jams after one of her lifelong friend’s Jen succumbed to breast cancer in her 30’s leaving behind a husband and two small children. The mission of Pink Jams is to raise awareness of Breast Cancer to those of us under the age of 40. This is not a disease that discriminates, it hits anywhere, anytime and anyone it pleases, mercy is not in this disease’s lexicon.
Under 40 herself, Christa decided she wanted to concentrate on fun charity events in order to grab DC’s attention. Events with rock and roll bands, fashion shows, and my male fashion crush- Christian Siriano (I love you!) She has out done herself in each one of her events. I go to more events than I care to admit and her events are always some of the best put together and exciting events to go to.
I went last week to one of her Pink Jams pre-launch smaller events, a little black dress party held at Moshe Zusman Studios. Her events are put together by her and a small team of friends with everything she has in her and it shows. Her events are fun and for such a great cause that has either affected one of us or someone we love.
I wanted to give everyone a heads up on the events coming up, the fashion show, the Christian Siriano meet and greet and the Hard Rock events. The events are for the under 45 crowd so the prices are very reasonable and like me she loves the wine, so there is that to look forward to.
Here is next month’s events calendar with links to get your tickets. Please get them in advance, Christian Siriano and fashion shows are to our age group what the Justin Beiber is to a 12 year old so the tickets sell out quickly.
Here is a list of some of the events coming up this October:
