Special Guests Terri Stacy, WIBC, and, Nikki Reed, Afternoon Drive Air Personality for 99.5 WZPL, will join the host committee and Indianapolis professionals to knit hot pink scarves, mingle with guests and enjoy food and drinks. Guests are welcome to keep their completed scarves or to donate them to GlamourGals who will gift them to residents of Robin Run Village at GlamourGals' Holiday Mega Makeover on Friday, December 9th. This event will allow guests to learn more about GlamourGals program, how to become further involved and raise awareness, and will raise funds to make expansion possible in Indiana.
