April 18th, 2018 at Ace Gillett's
We were so honored to put on the second Social Roulette event with Blue Harvest Apparel and Ace Gillett's. This time we worked to raise money for The Matthews House, which is an incredible local nonprofit that works to stop the cycle of poverty and to help families and youths that are in the foster system. The community is so lucky to have this organization. Like the first event, this Social Roulette worked to help attendees break out of their comfort zone and make authentic connections with new people. By having all of the guests rotate to new tables each round, we made sure that everyone met new people, and the roulette wheels on the table kept the conversation spinning. The event could not have happened without the help of our amazing sponsors: Mystique Lingerie, Zebra Jellyfish Photography, The Acupuncture Clinic of Fort Collins, Sara Leger Experiences, Blue Harvest Apparel, Edge Optics, Wink Lash Lounge, St Peter's Fly Shop, Under Pressure Therapeutics, June Poppies, Emily Rose Floral Designs, Picking Daisies Photography, Making The Look, and Lori with Stella and Dot. We can't wait for the next one!
