NEWS + UPDATES
We are beyond thrilled to announce that Suddenly Simple Events has teamed up with fellow Scituate business Jennifer Reale Boutique to host a FREE brunch event benefiting Maura's Hopeful Mission's 2017 Thanksgiving meal service!
Join us at Jennifer Reale Boutique in Scituate Harbor this Columbus Day, Monday October 9th, from 10a-3p to enjoy complimentary signature beverages, creative brunch bites and live entertainment throughout the day while you donate high-demand items at the care drive and shop incredible bargains to benefit Maura's Hopeful Mission's 2017 Thanksgiving meal service at the Maura's Hopeful Mission Benefit Brunch + Designer Rack Sale.
Not only will you be able to shop deeply discounted Jennifer Reale Designs at the event but you will also be able to support Maura's Hopeful Mission with any purchase throughout the store as Jennifer Reale Designs has generously pledged to donate 20% of the day's gross sales directly to Maura's Hopeful Mission in support of their first annual Thanksgiving Dinner service for Boston's homeless population.
The day begins at 10a with a totally-free, open-to-the-public launch party featuring creative brunch bites and signature beverages by Suddenly Simple Events, baked goods from Morning Glories Bakery, first-pick shopping and an informative ceremony showcasing Maura's Hopeful Mission's past, present and future initiatives.
The party really gets into full swing at 11a with a live acoustic performance by local artist Jimmy Peters for shoppers to enjoy along with their fun brunch bites, creative mocktails and fashionable finds into the afternoon.
New owners of Morning Glories Bakery, Molly and Cody, will be stopping by at 1p to participate in a casual meet and greet where curious members of the community can stop by and get to know them along with other Scituate small business owners including Melissa Peralta of Suddenly Simple Events and Jennifer of Jennifer Reale Designs.
The day will begin coming to a close at 2p with a conclusion ceremony where the winners of the day's prize raffles will be announced - winners need not be present to win - along with preliminary fundraising totals generated at the event.
Final sales will continue through 3p allowing last-minute shoppers the opportunity to boost the day's final fundraising total by bagging buzzer-beating bargains to benefit Maura's Hopeful Mission's 2017 Thanksgiving Dinner + Outreach Service.
