As we wrap up the October issue, 10 million North Carolinians are bracing for Hurricane Florence. My prayer is by the time this issue has left to go to the printer, the storm will have passed, and the damage will be minimal. We are thankful that my mother and step-father (who live near Wilmington) have evacuated safely; our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who are affected.
Despite our worries about the storm and potential damage, we do have several things to look forward to in October! First – I want to share about our annual Tour de Boutique! This will be our fifth year for Tour de Boutique and our 15th shopping trip! We have so much fun during this day! We still have seats, and if you’re interested, please register online at tinyurl.com/2018TDB.
On October 2nd, there are two great events to choose from! First, Grease is the word at A/peture Cinema! America’s favorite high school musical will be shown with all ticket sale proceeds going to support the Breast Cancer Research Foundation!
As much fun as that sounds, the Forsyth Womanteam are proud sponsors of Rose at Medaloni Cellars, also on October 2nd. From 5:30 – 8:30 PM, we’ll enjoy live music, great wine, food and fashion – all in support of breast cancer education and health through Wake Forest Baptist Health Outpatient Imaging! $10 includes a souvenir glass and your first drink, and all proceeds benefit 3P Fund which provides life-saving services to women of Winston-Salem.
And of course, we have our monthly Girls’ Night Out to look forward to! We’ll be at Hakka Chow Asian Eats on Wednesday, October 10th and it’s going to be a fun night of great food, friends, and laughter. And of course, our prize board! Check it out on page 37, but also turn one page over to 38 to read Rosey’s Review! That should get you hungry for GNO!
October also brings Forsyth Family’s biannual Home Issue! Make sure you check it out; our sister-publication has a jam-packed issue full of great home tips and ideas!
We are delighted to have our friends at Salem Plastic Surgery on our cover this month! After my mastectomy 13 years ago, Dr. Tucker did my reconstructive surgery. The experience was seamless, and I am grateful for the care they gave me during a difficult time. They have been great advertising partners for many years, and we look forward to more years to come!
It’s always a joy to bring you Forsyth Womanmagazine, and we are grateful for our readers and advertising partners. We can’t do what we love every month without you, so please know you’re valued and appreciated. Be sure to let our advertisers know you saw them in this month’s issue!
