The flavor is being re-launched at Girls Night Out (GNO) after a popular limited edition run earlier in the year. Special Mother’s Day Lip Butter packages featuring the flavor will be available for purchase. OlyBella owner Olivia Salazar de Breaux is excited about the opportunity to sponsor this event at Gallery Boom. When she approached the Gallery owner Christine Malek several months ago about participating in GNO, she shared the impact this event has on the community and on the women who attend. They talked about creating a space where all would feel welcomed; participants could relax and enjoy themselves, mingle and have fun, experience the rich offering of local artwork the Gallery has to offer, and make more memories.“Not only does this event bring a much-needed economic boost to our amazing downtown businesses, it is also a time to create lasting memories. My sisters and I attended our very first GNO in 2012 and made a pact to attend future events. Even after losing our younger sister – who passed away in 2012 months after GNO – we continue this tradition to pay honor and celebrate sisterhood. The energy and the excitement of this event is something that I am THRILLED to be a part of this year with Gallery Boom.”The Gallery Boom in Wonderland event is open to the public and all genders are welcome. Girls Night Out participants attend free, others pay $3 at the door. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Capsaicin Collective.last_img read more
