Several months ago, Jennifer from BellaGrey Designs, asked us to help out with an event she was organizing and hosting on behalf of Operation Shower, Operation Party, Support, Love Fundraising event to help raise money for this wonderful organization. Of course we said yes and got to work on finding a location for the event and anything else she needed for us to do.
The event was held on November 21st at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas, TX and was a great success. There were several wonderful and amazing vendors and friends there showing their support for this fabulous organization.
Operation Shower is about celebrating, honoring and showing love to military families. Operation Shower is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and their mission is to provide joyful- AWESOME — baby showers for military families to ease the stress of deployment.
For military families who are expecting a new baby and are experiencing or have recently experienced deployment, they accomplish their mission through:
- hosting amazing baby showers;
- delivering high-quality products;
- creating a shared experience;
- bringing recognition to military families; and
- working with individuals and companies to provide them an opportunity to show their appreciation and love for military families.

Ginger was sweet enough to talk about and explain what Operation Shower is to all of our guests.
Guests purchased raffle tickets for a chance to win $5000!
Pure Dental sponsored the raffle for the CHANCE Cash giveaway!
Pure Dental is just steps away from The Angelika Film Center and Cafe. They also donated two different Sonic Care Systems for the raffle.
The mini silent auction was a huge success ~ three sets of Dallas Mavericks tickets which included parking passes and $60 gift cards for food and beverages; a mini portrait session with Kristin Nicole Photography; custom painted children’s step stool by Sugar Bear Designs and a few Cabi clothing items were included in the auction.
The raffle was a great way to get our guests involved in the evening events. We had everything from a $50 Movida gift card to a couple $20 iFratelli’s gift cards as well as the Sonic Care Systems and more.
