On Saturday, February 13th 2015, we hosted our first official All Cycles event! The Red Party took place at Common AREA Maintenance an art space in Seattle’s Belltown neighborhood where we invited supporters to show up dressed in RED so that we could give our thanks to our amazing community.
The evening was made possible by the team of folks who donated their time and talents — including DJ Blazon Stone who kept a steady stream of 90’s R&B, 70’s Funk and 60’s Soul music jamming, Patty Hinkle who baked 2 of the most beautiful and delicious cakes you could imagine and Jenn Andrea who was snapping her camera in the photo booth and capturing the lovely faces of our guests throughout the night. Additionally we had some candid photography by Hanna Swanson, a Keg of Abigale Blonde Ale donated from Counter Balance Brewing Co. and Raffle Prizes from over 20 Seattle businesses with prizes valuing at over $1000. Holy Crap!
We saw 70 of All Cycles most beloved supporters come out and take part in the evenings festivities, we polished off 10 bottles of wine before the party was half over. We sold 2 of these beautiful All Cycles tote bags (made by supporter, Rachael Brooks) and still have 1 left, if you’d like it ($25.) We got lots of smiles, shared laughs and hugs and added $1120 for our Tampon Fund!
Thank you to everyone who came out on Saturday and to all of you who played a roll in making The Red Party so much fun! Thank you to all of the businesses who generously gave tickets, gift certificates and gift bags to our raffle and thank you to C.A.M. for opening their doors to us and our community! WE LOVE YOU ALL!
