Beading Divas do brunch

Beading Divas do brunch

Yesterday six of the original seven Beading Divas to the Rescue went to brunch at Shlomo & Vito’s Deli in Tucson.

We sat outside under the mist which was cool until it wasn’t.

The food was quite delicious and the service adept. I loved my scrambled eggs with lox & onions and latkes and toast. Their $5 Bloody Mary was spicy and potent. Clean plates abounded and everyone proclaimed their sandwiches tasty. I could’ve gone for an egg cream to polish off the meal but decided against it. And oh, those ginormous macaroons in the bakery case on the way out called my name but I kept walking. They were so tempting I could plotz. Now I wish for just a few sweet crumbs.

We noshed. We laughed. We gabbed. We gossiped. We talked about the future of Beading Divas to the Rescue.

We congratulated ourselves for RAISING $46,700 BY SELLING ONE TWENTY DOLLAR BRACELET AT TIME for worthy animal charities.

Done racing, enjoying life

We’re going around the final stretch for Arizona Greyhound Rescue.  During the month of October, all the sales of Beading Divas bracelets benefit AGR.

AZ Greyhound Rescue is located in Marana and serves all of Pima County and south east Arizona as well as Pinal County and parts of Maricopa County.

AGR gets retired racing greyhounds from the dog track in South Tucson as well as other greyhounds who have raced in Arkansas, Florida, Texas, and Tijuana, Mexico and from breeding farms all over the country. AGR also occasionally takes in greyhound mixes from PACC and other rescues throughout the state.

If you don’t want a bracelet, maybe you want to sponsor a dog? You can also get involved by providing foster care or volunteering at the kennel or a meet-and-greet. There are lots of ways to help out and it’s good for your psyche and soul.

Follow this link for where to buy bracelets in Tucson and online. Bracelets cost $20 and every penny of it goes directly to AGR. For online bracelets, add $4 S&H.
