{What's happening in FFP!}

Things are really starting to pick up with Fashion for Philanthropy. Alyssa, our super-talented student designer, has begun working on her line, we are accumulating tons of wonderful samples for the VIP gift bags, and decoration ideas for the theme of the show, fairy tales, are really starting to come together. Everyone has been working so hard, I really think this year's show, "Once Upon a Runway," will be the best yet!

At tonight's meeting, our main subjects were the upcoming bake sales and Valentine's Day "candygram" sale. The bake sales will be held in the McGinley Center, outside of the cafeteria, on Thursday, February 4, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m., and on Tuesday, February 9, from 12:00 to 7:00 p.m. We have really been encouraging everyone to bring different kinds of items, not just your standard bake sale cupcakes and cookies, as our last bake sale was SO successful because of the wide variety of items we offered.

Candygram sales will be taking place all next week, from Monday, February 8 to Thursday, February 11 from 12:00 to 7:00 p.m. in the McGinley Center. For $2, students and faculty members will be able to choose a gift, consisting of things such as chocolate lollipops, chocolate covered pretzels, candy, and other yummy Valentine's Day themed treats. They then fill out a heart-shaped note, and members of FFP will deliver the gift to your sweet heart!

Both of these events benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation, so they are for a great cause!
