“Honoring the Promise” with the Stars

Nancy Brinker addresses the crowd

“You are the future” Ambassador Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan G. Komen Foundation told a crowd of young Washingtonians. We attended the Komen Young Professionals reception held at a pink-lit Peacock Cafe’ in Georgetown. The event help kick off the buzz for what promises to be one of the premiere events of the Fall: Komen’s “Honoring the Promise” Gala on October 28th at The Kennedy Center. Last year, the non-profit celebrated 30 years of trying to find a cure and saving lives along the way. Last year’s star-studded gala included presenters Laura Bush, Gabrielle Union, Cynthia Nixon, Tory Burch… performers like Olivia Newton John, Lynda Carter.. and the Australian pop star who’s dating one of the Jonas Brothers, Delta Goodrem. That passionate evening raised a phenomenal $2 million dollars.

Sweet 16 celebration, for a sweet girl and a sweet charity

R&B star Ginuwine and his wife Tonya Lumpkin, previously known as rapper Sole, hosted their daughter Cypress Lee’s Sweet 16 at DC hotspot Eden to benefit the Somaly Mam Foundation – a charity that aims to end modern-day human trafficking. This was not your ordinary spoiled-child Sweet-16… the celebration raised over $2,000 for the charity, as Cypress’ guests were asked to donate money at the door in lieu of gifts. Before making her birthday wish and blowing out the candles, Cypress enjoyed the smooth singing of Father Ginuwine for a very special a cappella ‘Happy Birthday song.’ Notable guests at the bash included Paul Wharton of Bravo’s Real Housewives of DC, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Ayman Hakki, and 14-year-old sensation DJ Young Music. Scrumtious hors d’oeuvres were provided from Cafe Asia and cupcakes from Frosting: A Cupcakery.
