Ever-Pretty Supports UC Irvine’s Alpha Phi Red Dress Gala
This year, Ever-Pretty was lucky enough to be a supporter of Alpha Phi at UC Irvine’s Red Dress Gala, an event that’s both philanthropic and fashionable. Their incredible annual event has raised over $65,000 for the American Heart Association and the Alpha Phi Foundation, which provides funding and educational programming for women’s cardiac care organizations. UC Irvine’s Alpha Phi chapter won recognition for the amount of funding they’ve raised from Alpha Phi International, and the American Heart Association awarded their “Outstanding Community Contribution.” Heart disease is the number one killer of women in America and Alpha Phi is determined to change that.
2018 marked the 12th Annual UC Irvine Red Dress Gala, which was held at Fashion Island in Newport Beach. It was a night filled with love and support for the American Heart Association and an inspiring group of women doing their part to help find a cure. If you’re interested in being part of this event for 2019, be sure to check out an Alpha Phi Red Dress Gala in your area and help contribute to an inspiring and worthy cause.
Beyond the charitable cause, this evening is an absolute treat for any attendee. It’s a night of dancing, a lavish sit-down dinner, and an auction full of amazing prizes, from gift cards to an adorable golden retriever puppy. And the best part? The Red Dress Gala lives up to its name, with everyone in attendance wearing their bright and beautiful red dresses. In the words of the women of Alpha Phi: “It’s simple. Go red. Go red for courage, go red for hope, go red to help find a cure.”
