On Thursday, February 2nd, GlamourGals supporters flocked to The Kitchen NYC to mingle with chairwomen, Lauren Ruotolo and Lynn Raynault and Illuminate hosts, to meet special guests while sipping on customized cocktails by Solerno enjoying hors d’oeuvres by The Mansfield, and desserts, while bidding on luxury auction items, and enjoying live performances and rare experiences.
“It was an honor for me to be a part of GlamourGals Illuminate for the second year, helping to raise awareness and critical funds for an organization benefiting not one, but two generations: young and old. My grandma is my best friend, and my personal Glamour Gal, so it brought me so much joy to support this cause on her behalf, as I would want her to feel fabulous and confident always, just as she has taught be since I was young,” says Illuminate host, blogger, and TV personality, Micah Jesse.
Illuminate sold out to a crowd of over 150 people where we raised nearly $18,500 towards our $25,000 goal. Our online auction powered by charitybuzz will be live through February 21st. Click here to bid on one of our exclusive experiences to help us reach our goal.
At Illuminate, GlamourGals inaugurated and raised critical funds for its scholarship program through a live auction. We will be giving out three $1,000 dollar scholarships at our Glammy Awards on Saturday, April, 28th.

“Every GlamourGals event is a fantastic party, but the reason for celebration is never far from your mind. GG always includes personal touches to their event venue with hot pink accents like lighting and delicious GG cupcakes, but also through prominently displayed photographs, stories, and messages from their loyal volunteers,” says GlamourGals supporter, Ashly Priest, who covered the event for Lifestyle and Charity Magazine and who will be Chair of Raffles for Glamour in the City.
