The 2019 CREW Summer Social was held on June 24th at the Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA). This premier location provided a contemporary open space ideal for hosting a lively group.  With the museum closed to the public, the attendees had exclusive access to the amazing exhibits.  While mingling, everyone got to enjoy delicious food and beverages provided by Tarrant’s. Taking center stage at the event was the “Bucket Raffle”; everyone had the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets and drop them in the bucket of the prize they wished to win. Items included everything from beach gear, to wine baskets, to tickets to The Nutcracker. There was also an option to bid on three silent auction items. The bidding got competitive between a beach house, river house and a box at a Flying Squirrels game. Our signature raffle item was a beautiful David Yurman bracelet donated by Fink’s Jewelers. In the end there were some very happy winners, some who even took home multiple wins! The biggest victor of the night was Dress for Success Central Virginia. All proceeds of the event will be donated to support their programs; empowering women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools in the Richmond community. All of this was made possible by our generous sponsors whose support is invaluable to the success of the CREW Richmond Summer Social.

Thank you to our Summer Social Sponsors
