NoorfoundationThe Noor fundraising community group is presenting a fundraiser, “50 Shades of Color, Thrift Store Style Revue” to raise funds in support of the SLO Noor free clinics on Sunday, Aug. 10 from 1- 4 p.m. at the SLO Elks Lodge at 222 Elks Lane. This special fashion show will feature guest model, Dr. Ahmad Nooristani, (founder of SLO Noor free clinics), finger foods, raffle, no-host bar and much more! Tickets are $25 for adults, $15 for children and can be purchased at https://slo-noor.eventbrite.com (go to “50 Shades of Color”) or call Dianne Tuttle, chairperson, (805) 781-2630.

The goal for this event is to have 200 attendees and to raise $10,000, all of which will go directly to the SLO Noor medical, eye, and dental clinics. The clinics are supported solely from grants, fundraisers and private donations and are staffed by volunteer professionals. An anonymous supporter has generously offered to match all money raised, dollar for dollar.

Chamber members are being extended a special invitation to be involved in this much needed humanitarian endeavor to serve the local communities through the donation of silent auction and in-kind donations. Be creative! Anything you can offer will be greatly appreciated.  For donations over $250 in value, you will be listed as a sponsor of the event, in print and social media both before and after the fashion show.  Your name and generosity will be mentioned directly to thousands of people and reaffirmed to those in attendance.

Donations are tax deductible and can be picked up by a volunteer. Some suggested items: gift certificates, art, wine, gift baskets, garden items, handmade items, baked goods or desserts, special overnight stays, appetizer food of any kind, personal services (facials, massage, or hair makeovers), business services and more.

Please call for information on major sponsorship opportunities at the diamond, gold, and silver levels. Join us for a day of fun and fashion to support a worthy cause.
