Liz Bragdon of Our Place Studio and Reina Solano of Shop Soul Boutique have joined forces to take part in the “500 Women for Hope House” campaign. The goal of the campaign is for 500 women from St. Tammany & Washington Parishes to raise $100 (or more) for the Children’s Advocacy Center – Hope House. Their idea to raise the money was to host a “CovLuv” raffle – powered by the community through donations from local businesses and artists. Over thirty items have been collected to raffle off, including prizes like a 1 month supply of kombucha from Kombucha Girl, a 60 minute customized massage from Soul’s Journey, a tangerine quartz necklace from Shoeffle’, the coveted $100 gift certificate to OxLot 9, and so much more! To learn about more of the raffle items visit them at their table in front of Shop Soul Boutique during the Block Party! Tickets are available at Our Place Studio & Shop Soul, $2 per or $1 per for 5 or more, now through the end of March. www.opcovington.com
