This month, since our theme for Girl's Night Out is "Walk on the Wild Side," I am featuring the Abandoned Pet Rescue (APR) as the Charity Spotlight.
Abandoned Pet Rescue (APR), founded in 1996, is a 501(C)(3) IRS tax-exempt, qualified non-profit charitable organization that rescues and shelters abandoned, abused, and neglected pets, rehabilitates them and finds them new homes. APR is one of the largest no kill animal shelters in South Florida and is devoted to the welfare of all animals.
To help support the mission of this month's charity please consider donating items from their Wish List:. Their number one need is canned cat food.
This month the Girl's Night Out social took a road trip to Boca for a fun and unique twist. We had some 'healthy' retail therapy at Fabletics! From wellness supplements to vegan jewelry and body assessments the night was themed to get you ready for looking your best this Summer and dressed "fab"ulous while working out!
In addition to the fabulous team at Fabletics, especially Sonnia for her hard work, I want to give a big thank you to my friend, Marisa, for helping me with the event as I had to miss it due to walking in the Fort Lauderdale runway Fashion Week show ---> see photos from FashionWeek here<----
Thank you to @jai_creatives for capturing the evening!
