Do you know who that is? That, my friends, is the amazing Pursey Galore. Almost a year ago to the day, Pursey Galore visited us here in So Cal for what ended up being called Pursey Galore’s un-adventurous weekend.
Who the heck is Pursey Galore? If you don’t know,
where have you been? let me explain…A year ago my beautiful and charitable friend Lori over at In Pursuit of It All launched a fundraiser for the American Stroke Association. In memory of her grandmother, and to “share” the world’s tackiest accessory, a sequined, zebra-striped handbag by the name Pursey Galore, Lori’s had Pursey traveling the country from blogger to blogger, raising awareness and money for the ASA for over a year now.
And I have supported Pursey from the beginning, and will continue to until her last sequin falls off. And many of you have too, and so we’re hoping you’ll continue to support her in one last hurrah…
Me and the awesome women who make up Have Wine, Will Drink immediately jumped in and said, let us help!
We had Have Wine, Will Drink’s first impromptu Twitter party last week called #WineBuzz. It was way more fun and way more succesful than we ever imagined, so we decided to turn our second #WineBuzz into a “wine tweetathon” to get Lori to her fundraising goal.
And that’s why we need your help…
Please come and support a good cause…and you can drink wine, water, beer, soda, or whatever while you’re at it! It’s going to be a blast, and we are asking for your support. Lots of bloggers you know will be there. We’ll tweet about wine. We’ll ask people to give up Starbucks for one day and make a donation to ASA instead. And yes of course we’ll be giving away some awesome prizes, like magnetic wine charms from Simply Charmed and gift certificates from Lot 18 and ONEHOPE Wine…two brands I love and have endorsed before…
And? Twitter parties are fun if you’ve never been to one. Meet new tweeps, chat for an hour and kick back and enjoy yourself.
So you’ll be there, right? It’ll be at 6 p.m. PST/9 p.m. EST Wednesday, September 28th. You can follow hashtag #WineBuzz and #PPNB. Or, join our custom Tweetgrid here: http://bit.ly/pO1yFa.
If you want to RSVP to the party, head over to Lori’s blog and RSVP there. If you want to win the prizes, though…you’ll have to make a tiny donation to the ASA and then tweet about it. Totally worth getting free wine, right?
If you can’t make it, no problem! You can still show your support by making a donation here. We can get Lori to her goal…let’s do it!
