We just learned about a couple of good things happening this month on Fifth Avenue. Asha Veza has organized a fundraising raffle to benefit GEMS, a NYC organization committed to empowering girls who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.
Sixteen Fifth Avenue businesses have each generously donated a $50 gift certificate towards the fundraiser. One lucky winner will receive all 16 gift certificates (a total $800 value)!
Raffle tickets will be sold for $5 each (cash only please) between the 9th and 15th of December at Asha Veza, Bierkraft, Gorilla, Tabeel and at Southpaw's Kings County General Store on December 12th from 12-5 PM.
Gift Certificate Donors: Alchemy, Amazing BK Race, Asha Veza, Aunt Suzie's, Beacon's Closet, Bierkraft, Canaille, Element Beauty Lounge, Gorilla, Luscious, Miriam, Olia Designs, SIP, Southpaw, St. Kilda, and Tabeel.
The raffle drawing will take place at 8 PM on Thursday, December 16th at Asha Veza (69 Fifth Avenue) at a Special Fundraising event for GEMS.
Also, a number of Fifth Avenue Businesses are offering their customers an extra-special Snowflake Special cross-promotion discount on the 9th and 16th December. On those evenings, bring a receipt from earlier that day from any of the following participating Fifth Avenue businesses into any other participating venue for a 10% discount:
Alchemy, Asha Veza, Bierkraft, Canaille Bistro, Element Spa, Gorilla Coffee, Lulu's Then & Now, Luscious Food, Miriam, SIP, Tabeel and The V Spot.
