Announcing Our Cookies & Champagne Party 2011

It's baaack! We are doing it again after last year's party had 200 hip + urban girls networking and over 8000 cookies exchanged. Sooo here we go...

The Hip & Urban Girl's Guide presents:
The Second Annual Cookies & Champagne Party 
a champagne-infused all-girl networking sesh + modern cookie swap

Thanks to our corporate sponsors, Olympus, Chobani Yogurt and Barefoot Wines, we've been able to offset a lot of our expenses to host this party.  So we're happy to pass on some of the cost savings to our loyal readers and friends by reducing ticket prices by $10.
The new prices are:
$20  + 4 dozen cookies (includes a glass of champagne, cookie swap and networking)
$30 + no cookies (includes a glass of champagne and networking)
If you've already paid regular price, please see Geoff at the event for your $10 cash refund.
ALSO!  Elmwood Spa will be hooking up the first 200 guests with a $20 GIFT CARD (off a spa treatment of $100 or more) +  $15 GIFT CARDS to Bangkok Garden Restaurant.  TOTAL VALUE - $35!

How it works:
  1. Bake (4) dozen cookies the weekend before the event, bring all your baked goods with a card explaining your baked creation. Please no store-bought.
  2. Don't Bake? You can still attend + network and purchase a networking only ticket.
  3. We set-up everyone's cookies in a giant sugary spread!
  4. Bring (2-3) big containers or giant ziploc bags to store your new cookies in.
  5. Everyone moves around their assigned table and takes home a pile of cookies.
  6. Eat the extras, while networking with 200 awesome hip + urban girls in the city. 
  7. Sugar coma ensues!  Shop the HUG Mini Christmas Market of local vendors & artisans.
