Girls that Shred

Bennion & Deville Fine Homes Inc.
The Vera Project is hosting: Girls That Shred: A Benefit for Skate Like a Girl at 7:00 p.m. this Friday night. Skate Like a Girl (also known as SLAG) is a local, volunteer-powered nonprofit. This organization brings communities together by offering free and low-cost programs, making sure that no one is turned away for lack of funds. These programs provide practical tools, such as boards, protective gear, and skateboard instruction to help promote self-empowerment, equality, and civic engagement for girls in a male dominated field. SLAG is aimed at giving people of all ages and backgrounds opportunities to gain confidence, create lasting friendships, and a sense of identity through skateboarding. There will be door prizes that will include signed decks, T-shirts, CDs, stickers, and more. Friday’s event will feature female bands, Chastity Belt, Tacocat, Atomic Bride, and Summer Babes. There will also be a guest appearance from Lures, a local rock and roll band, to represent the “boys that shred.” The Vera Project is located in Lower Queen Ann.
**This event suggests a $10 donation

Saturday January 11

Seattle Opera Red Carpet Opening Night, Rigoletto
Bennion & Deville Fine Homes Inc.In a considerable effort to ween Seattleites off of a wardrobe of strictly fleece and gore tex, the organizer’s behind this year’s opening night at the Opera are making a  big push to spruce up our fair city for fancy occasions that call for, well, a little more Seattle swag.  What’s more is that this season opens with Rigoletto, and on the tail of the Gatsby’s reign in the theaters this year, hopefully people got the hint to add a little 30s wear to their wardrobes as the Opera encourages “men in well-draped suits and women in Old Hollywood finery.”  Come see and be seen as Seattle tries its hand at glam.
**More information, including ticket purchases and details on the Jester’s Ball (the glam after party) can be found at Seattle Opera.
