Digitally Chic’s #DCbday Event Recap

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I started Digitally Chic with six other Bay Area ladies, but it has! Already! To celebrate, we threw our biggest bash yet, to which over 200 people RSVP’d and attended!

Our goal was to invite each of our members out for a fun night of celebration, as well as include those interested in the group who may not have had a chance to attend a meetup during the past year. We also chose a charitable organization to donate any money raised, as well as some special items, including an HP netbook.

I feel that we accomplished our goals and had a great time doing so.

Our theme was a one year birthday party, so of course we had some cute party favors for attendees to pose with. And our DJ kept the fun vibe we wanted going throughout the night by playing hits like ‘Return of the Mack’ (a personal favorite of mine). Needless to say there was definitely a group dancing down in front! There was also plenty of space for those interested in more of a networking atmosphere.

Our event wouldn’t be complete without our great sponsors, including Crystal J. Silk, Photojojo, ModCloth, and ThinkGeek! By way of raffle and Giftiki, we raised almost $300 for our charity of choice for the evening, Family House!!

I also announced the winner of the HP Vivienne Tam Mini 210 PC giveaway contest that I ran on my blog for the two weeks leading up to the event. After counting over 80 creative entrie, I was pleased to announce that, drawn at random, Marty Anderson won the netbook! Marty, the queen of finding great vintage pieces, will be modeling the netbook early next year for my blog.

It’s been quite the year of fun, fashion, learning, making new friends, gadgetry, event planning, brunches, and networking. Thank you to everyone who supported. Check out all of the pictures on our Facebook fan page.
