Giveaway alert: tickets to Flaunt!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Giveaways and product reviews

I have been graciously given tickets to attend the first annual Flaunt event on Wednesday, November 17 at Lago Bar & Grill. Flaunt is showcasing products and services of a variety of women in business from the Ottawa area. It’s about shopping, mingling-slash-networking, and (let’s be frank) getting an opportunity to ditch our sensible shoes.

Flaunt is organized by the Ottawa Chapter of Entrepreneurial Moms.

Tickets are only $15 per person and can be purchased at the door.

  • There will be swag
  • … and a cash bar
  • … and munchies
  • … and they’re also raising money for the Food Bank and Chrysalis House,  a home for women and their children leaving family abuse.

Lago is a really nice venue for a night out. You want to go. Really. But wear a coat because it’s a tiny hike from the parking lot across the street. (Damn those shoes.)

I have two tickets to give away to Flaunt and I’d like to give them to two different individuals. Please leave a comment if you’d like to go. Winners: I’ll have to meet you at the door to give you your ticket. I’ll do a random draw for two names at noon EST on Friday November 12.

So who wants to go?

I would love to be able to go with my daughter. We never get a chance to go out alone without the grandkids, or our spouses. It would be a chance for us to have some fun together and help a good cause.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
