    WEO Annual Holiday Event:

    Retro Xmas Cocktails on December 16, 2015

    WEO's December meeting will be so hot it's cool with our Retro Xmas Cocktail theme. Time to put on your little black dress and party with your WEO ladies!

    Santa's bringing us a brand new WEO signature cocktail for this event, plus we'll enjoy the ever-popular gift exchange ($10 gift in a gift bag--not wrapped), take some holiday photos (no ugly sweater required) , and we might even sing a holiday carol or two. This will be a party to remember!

    We're going to have a lot of fun but we won't forget those less fortunate. Be sure to bring a new or like-new accessory (scarf, jewelry or bag) for our WE Care donation to Dress for Success. We're also collecting for Safe Choice again this year; see the wish list here: http://weowa.org/Safe-Choice-donations

    Gift exchange rules: Bring one gift ($10 value) in a gift bag (no wrapping, please) to enjoy this very fun part of our holiday meeting. Each gift can be "stolen" twice, meaning it can pass to up to three people (the original recipient plus two "thieves") before it is considered owned.

    Stocking Stuffer: This fun new fund-raiser replaces the Pot O'Gold in December. Tickets are just $5 each, and at the end of the evening, the amount of cash stuffed in this stocking is split between the Safe Choice house and one very lucky winning WEO!
