Last year’s inaugural birthday party for Claire was such a hit, that Claire's Army decided to do it again! The Second Annual Claire's Birthday Celebration is THIS Sunday - August 28th. This will be to celebrate what would have been Claire's 7th Birthday.
Claire’s Army strives to act as God’s hands and feet by providing support for families fighting childhood cancer. Through an established network of resources we will support the families’ daily responsibilities, allowing them to put their time and focus on their child.
Please mark your calendar to celebrate one special little girl and one another with food, pink drinks, incredible auction items, and of course, birthday cake.
Who: Extraordinary women who give their time, talent, and resources to serve our pediatric cancer families and grow the Army
When: Sunday August 28th 3:00-6:00 pm
Where: McColl Center for Art + Innovation 721 N Tryon St, Charlotte, NC 28202
Why: To honor and thank the women who have selflessly supported our organization and to hear more about what Claire’s Army is doing to serve pediatric oncology families in our community.

I LOVE Football season and I - for one - am thrilled that it is back! If you've followed for a while you know that last year was heartbreaking to say the least. Clemson went undefeated and Panthers only lost one game when they entered the championship and both lost. I'm counting down until seasons truly start in September but already stoked about NFL Pre-Season. Today is week two and I have my new shirt from Pink Social.
Pink Social started from two friends, Carrie and Sarah, who wanted to unify women and create an awesome product for us to love. They have a variety of women's graphic tees, shirts for the little pink socialites and -of course- GAMEDAY!
Along with their rockin' tees we all love, they are the founders of the Pink Social Girl Tribe; a tribe of women mostly within Charlotte who collab, ask question and take part in their #promowednesday. It's a great place to connect. But most of all, they empower other women and our community.

Epicenter is the heart of Charlotte. There is Alive After Five every Thursday during the summer, Dale Earnhardt Jr’s hot night club Whiskey River, the Premier movie theater Studio Movie Grill and my favorite, Blackfinn AmeriPub.
Our August Girls Night Out event is going to be located in the heartbeat of Uptown and Blackfinn invited me out for a night out to sample their menu. Not to mention, they gave me a sweet gift to give to one of you!
Starting off our night we vowed to only order Blackfinn Favorites and it was the best decision. First decision: Drinks. Now, I love anything mango flavored and my eyes immediately went to the Mango Sunrise while my boyfriend chose the Blackfinn Iced Tea. Both were phenomenal choices. Then the Blackened Brie and knew we had to start with that. It immediately reminded me of England so I had to give it a try. The brie served warm with ciabatta toast, sliced apples and apricot cranberry chutney was decedent.
For our main course we grabbed a dish of Jambalaya Pasta and the T-Bird. The jambalaya shrimp, chicken, andouille sausage, peppers and onions in a tomato broth with angel hair pasta while the t-bird is Blackfinn's secret recipe turkey burger topped with chive aioli, chopped bacon, lettuce and tomato. Before we knew it, both dishes were scrapped clean.
I hate that we were so full once we were done. I had eyed their Blackfinn Hot Chocolate dessert all night. I love anything oeey gooey chocolate filled desserts.
We loved our dinner at Blackfinn and we want YOU to enjoy a night out too. We have a $50 gift card up for grabs! Enter through RaffleCopter and if you finish all the steps, you have multiple chances to win!
Contest ends Monday August 15th at midnight. Winner will be selected at 10am Tuesday August 16th.
