Celebrate with the Plush Barbie Club
March 27, 2012 by Sarah
The “Pamper’d Pink” Spring Pantry Party will take place in the City Line Avenue KFC Building on March 31 from 5-8pm. Admission is free; raffle and dollar auction tickets can be purchased.
The event is sponsored by the Plush Barbie Club, P.B.C, an organization of young women from 22-35 which mentors younger girls and women. Their mission is to help “to diminish negative media stereotypes surrounding young inner-city women” and they are “committed to growth and success in their own lives.” Among the programs they provide are Camp P2, which mentors girls from ages 9-17, and the Enrich Academy for young women aged 18-22. They also provide peer to peer support for one another.
Pamper’d Pink will feature dollar auctions for prizes such as gift baskets, gift cards and a gift tree, raffles, games, door prizes, free food and parking, pastries for sale, demonstrations of P.B.C. programs, makeup, and food. It’ll be a fun evening for young women in Bala Cynwyd. Local printing companies will most likely provide the posters and signs to advertise this event; as well as items such as banners to decorate the hall where the event is being held.
Organizations such as P.B.C. are necessary in today’s world; girls often receive mixed messages about the kind of lives they can lead, especially those in the inner-city. P.B.C. gives those girls and women involved in the organization the self esteem to be their own person regardless of what anyone else says.
