A number of Classy Living Society sister-friends flew the friendly skies recently to meet up in the major resort city internationally known for glitz, glamour, good food & casinos – Las Vegas, Nevada!
The ultimate girl trip was promoted by CLS’ Weekend Give-Away Project (give-away = go “away” to “give” back)! Give-Away trips are economical weekend excursions to various U.S. cities to participate in special community service initiatives, create sisterhood bonding and bring awareness to CLS and the causes it is passionate about…which, of course, includes FUN!
It was a long weekend of laughter, hugs, and sister-love plus good food, great wine and cocktails, casino visits, shopping, a day-long pool party, and the highlight – R&B superstar Usher’s opening night concert of his Las Vegas residency!
Prior to the concert, the ladies got together at a Yellow Top Welcome Reception at El Segundo del Sol, a Mexican restaurant located on the Strip. Yellow tops were worn in honor of those who have lost their fight against human sex trafficking and support for survivors. The attendees brought journals, Amazon gift cards, and other inspirational items to be donated to Refuge for Women – Las Vegas. To top it off, CLS donated $300 for household supplies for the women served by the nonprofit.
Refuge for Women is a nonprofit, faith-based organization providing specialized long-term care for women who have escaped human trafficking or sexual exploitation. With multiple locations across the U.S., Refuge for Women offers up to twelve months of safe housing at no charge to the resident, with around-the-clock care as residents progress through evidence-based, trauma-informed programming.
Las Vegas owed the CLS ladies nothing after their girl trip came to an end! It was truly a great opportunity to socialize, inspire and give back! Viva Las Vegas and Viva CLS!
