The first annual PINK Pamper Expo, brought to you by POYED by Velvette and Pretty With A Purpose, was held on May 3rd at GRIND.

This pre-Mother’s day event was a day of shopping, pampering, gifts, notable attendees, charity and much more. Mothers and daughters, business professionals and fashion and beauty supporters will join together for a full day of pampering with a purpose.

Benefiting from this event is the People’s Resource and Development Association (PRaDA), an organization dedicating to social reform while serving and uplifting low income NYC residents as they strive to break the cycles of poverty.

From my estimates there were about 200 ladies who came together to celebrate each other and enjoy a little primping and pampering, Lord knows we deserve it.  It was a really beautiful sight to see. Special thanks to POYED and Pretty for inviting me to cover this amazing event. I can’t wait for the second annual expo next year.
