Cameras were flashing on Saturday, October 16, 2010 as our guests walked the teal carpet and were photographed in the first annual “Teal Carpet Affair” held at Social Night Club (Buffalo,NY).
The “2010 Teal Carpet Affair” was a night to remember with over 150 guests who came out and supported the fight against ovarian cancer and raised a significant amount of funds for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
With over 60 Chinese auction baskets, a silent auction, and a 50/50 raffle; every guest had an opportunity to walk away with something special. Guests also took the opportunity to grab one of the “2010 Teal Carpet Affair” swag bags which included New Era Cap customized hats and promotional items from local businesses around Western New York.
Tremendous support from local media poured in from Channel 7, YNN, and the Buffalo News; which covered the event leading up to and provided full coverage during the night that was filled with laughter and great stories.
A special thank you to all of our sponsors; New Era Cap, J.W. Danforth, Cape Securities, Inc., Lola Pearl Bake Shoppe, Perry’s Ice Cream, and Social Night Club which made the “Teal Carpet Affair” a memorable night! With the outpour of support, we are proud to announce that the “Teal Carpet Affair” will be returning for an encore in 2011. We want to thank those who participated in this event, your support has allowed for the beginning of a new era in the awareness of ovarian cancer, which has been over shadowed for 30 years.
