In the past month Darling’s Diner has gone from a neighborhood eatery to a 24/7 fully liquor licensed operation. As diners go, what more could you want? How about a night of free chair massages, sex therapy, boutique clothes, high end make up and more – and it all benefits a pedal powered cause.
This Thursday, October 14, Darling’s is hosting its first ever Fashion and Cosmetics Presentation with a one-hour free open bar from 6:30pm – 7:30pm as well as raffles and tastings for guests until 10pm. Advanced tickets are available online for just $15 but waiting to buy them at the door will cost $25.
Bringing the season's newest, hottest and trendiest trunk show clothes will be personal stylist Mary Harvey of Rack & Roll Clothing Co. Motives Makeup will have a selection of products and make-up artists on-site to help apply and explain all of the new fall colors.
Also on location will be two massage therapists offering chair massages, a sex therapist offering tips and advice, a personal trainer who specializes in marathon running, an interior designer and energy auditor to give advise on eliminating carbon footprints in the home and health and wellness product samplings. There will even be an anti-aging guru there to demonstrate a 3 minute non-invasive face lift.
Raffle prizes will include a full face demo by the guru, a two month membership to the Bellvue, tickets to the Walnut Street Theater, a handmade messenger bag, a bike helmet, private yoga and Pilates sessions and other prizes.
Live Loud, a network of wellness professionals, will be putting on the benefit, bringing with them their network of experts who encourage a balanced life in eight different areas – adventure, career, family, finance, social, spiritual, romance and health. Live Loud partners to market products and services, while giving back to the community through non-profits and charitable organizations.
The Darling’s Fashion and Cosmetics Presentation will benefit Gearing Up, a non-profit that helps women coming out of the cycle of abuse and addiction. Individuals get help while learning how to ride and maintain a bicycle, using bicycle safety as a metaphor for life. Live Loud is aiming to help raise $2,000 for their cause by donating the entire ticket price, raffle ticket sales and 20% of all of the products sold during the evening.
Darling’s Diner 1001 North 2nd Street Philadelphia, PA 267-239-5775
