It’s Fashion Meet Philanthropy: Give in STYLE This Year at The Red Pump / Red Tie Affair
Get dressed up and meet us there! Always count us in when it comes to giving in style. Plus this is an event we look forward to every year.
Now in its eight year, The Red Pump Project®’s Annual Red Pump/Red Tie Affair will commemorate World AIDS Day 2016 on Saturday, December 3 from 7:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. at LaCa Projects located at 1429 Bryant Street in Uptown Charlotte. The Affair, which is hosted by Red Pump Charlotte, fuses fashion and philanthropy while serving to bring awareness and education about the impact of HIV/AIDS in the Greater Charlotte community. Tickets are available for this event online.
Mingle on the red carpet and socialize during the cocktail hour with special invited guests including some of Charlotte’s notable entrepreneurs, philanthropists, media personalities, socialites and tastemakers. The Red Pump Project will “party with a purpose” to raise awareness and funds. Ticket prices range from $40.00 to $75.00 per person. Cocktail attire is required. Red pumps and red ties are strongly encouraged.
Also enjoy a cocktail hour with light hors d’oeuvres and beverages from BAREFOOT Wine and Bubbly and Olde Mecklenburg Brewery, a runway show featuring local independent fashion designers, and a silent auction where 100 percent of proceeds will benefit those living right here in the Queen City through a variety of programming initiatives planned for 2017, including one of Red Pump’s most popular programs Cupcakes and Condoms.
One of the most heartwarming parts of the night is when a female community leader is honored for her dedication of time and energy to fighting the battle against HIV/AIDS. Each year The Red Pump Award is given to a woman who personifies what The Red Pump Project is all about—delivering education and promoting awareness. Past honorees include Hannah Stutts (2015), Rev. Deborah C. Warren (2014) Tarsha’ Hamilton (2013), Geneva Galloway (2012), Joanne Stevenson Jenkins (2011), Dee Dee Richardson (2010) and DeVondia Roseborough (2009).
