As we get closer to the end of the year, I get a bit closer to my “official” 5 year anniversary…yes, next month is it! But in preparation for a sparkly, celebration filled November, I wanted to also do something special in honor of breast cancer awareness month in October!

Just last weekend I embarked on my “giving back” initiative. I started with the people (my amazing Senior Team) who have helped me build KOWE and embody the spirit, devotion, and sparkle that is necessary to be a part of team KOWE. We spent the day with other likeminded individuals / vendors and between relaxing treatments for my staff, we came up with a great way to giveback to the community we all live and work in.

This is just one of many KOWE events that we're doing to give back in preparation of our 5 year anniversary!  One of our favorite transportation vendors, Today's Limo, has the most amazing PINK Escalade limo that we were able to take out for a spin and they donate a portion of their rental fee back to charity- see more details below!

KOWE 0005 

Starting today and for the entire month of October, we will donate 5% of any wedding booked with Katie O' Weddings and Events  to the Capital Region Action Against Breast Cancer (also known as CRAAB)!

And in addition, the following sparkly friends and vendors will be offering similar deals…check them out below!
