“Set in a SF hotspot, at the DAI shopping event I managed to find some unique vintage jewelry for myself, a Father’s Day gift for my dad and a couple new designers to share with my readers on FabSugar.com. And the cocktails, tunes and hummus made the experience even better!”

“Design for Change: Tag team event features 50 local designers, brunch, and makeovers. A portion of proceeds benefits the Not for Sale Campaign; Why: Buy local. Get a gold star.”

“Benefits can be stuffy affairs; even for the best causes, you can wonder, ‘What exactly am I paying for?’ Design for Change offers a plethora of answers to that question. With food, drink, DJ’s, live jazz, makeovers, manicures, hairstyling, goodie bags (yes!) and more than 50 local designers peddling their wares, you have a lot of ways to get some bang from your buck. Not only can you feel good about supporting Bay Area crafters, but the proceeds go to the Not for Sale Campaign, an international effort to end human trafficking – slavery – which is growing globally at a frightening rate.”
