Giving Back

Last year Curtsy Bella quit paying for advertising and instead made a commitment to increase our charitable giving. We have re-newed that same commitment this year and are adding a new twist.

Several months ago we were approached by an alumni of a local sorority asking if they could hold a purse auction and private shopping event at Curtsyland to raise money for breast cancer awareness. We agreed to host the event and agreed additionally that we would donate 10% of the evenings revenues to their cause. The event was held last night and it ended up being a fabulous success. The sorority had a great event and we felt wonderful to be able to donate money as well as the venue. With the tough economy, charitable giving has dropped off, but the needs of various organizations have not.

The Curtsy Girls have decided that once a month we will partner with a local charitable organization to hold a shopping event for it's members and donate a portion of the proceeds to that charity. It could be a private after hours event or possibly a day that's devoted to your cause. We will ask that the charity be designated as a 501 (c) (3) by the IRS. If your organization is interested in being considered for one of the events, send us an e-mail at or stop by the store. We've got 11 spots to fill this year, including one for February, so don't procrastinate.
