Darla Rae- A Rockin' roll Benefit-
I think most of you are all aware of Retro Betty's commitment to the community and her steadfast involvement in charity events. Well this time Retro Betty is out- full force, organizing and hosting a benefit to raise funds for a client and dear friend.
While I was going strong preparing for a Brides big day- finishing up the bridesmaid rings, starting the best man's bow tie, I received a phone call that everyone dreads...
My bride, long time client and friend had been critically injured in a motorcycle accident. Not only had she been in a horrific accident, but a single mother of two boys was now in the ICU. Darla had to be rescued from the South Platte river after being thrown over the handle bars of her new 2013 Harley Davidson Sportster, left in critical condition she was rushed to the hospital with a punctured lung, internal bleeding, broken ribs, arm and pelvis. Grateful that she is still here alive today to tell her story- I knew that she was going to need financial help..
And that is how this whole benefit got started, a group of the most giving and talented women in the world put their heads together- never sponsoring a benefit before,took action and to date have pulled over 1k DOLLARS in donations and product to raffle and auction at the benefit! It looks to be the best party of the new year. I am overwhelmed with gratitude to all the local businesses that have donated, the people and of course to all my ladies and men out there that have put in their time and efforts.
Retro Betty will put "on hold" all designs and manufacturing until after the event, to dedicate 100% of my time to raising donations-

And OF COURSE there will be Retro Betty merchandise at the benefit for raffle and auction!
