Evening In Excellence

Last night was Evening In Excellence for ourYoung Women. I can't believe it's already been a year! This whole night took a ton of work from a ton of people but it turned out so great! We turned the gym into The Eternal Gateway Mall and each of us was in charge of creating a store that corresponded with one of the YW values.

The night started out with a cute skit by the girls texting each other about going to the "new mall". Then the girls got purses and credit cards and were separated into three groups to "shop". The rotated from store to store while us leaders gave them a little five minute lesson on our store and value. Then they could purchase a little gift before they moved on. At the end, everyone gathered at the Good Works Gallery Boutique and each YW presented their 10 hour project and posterboard. After presentations it was dinner at the Food Court. I think it turned out way cute, but my pictures just don't do it justice! TRUST ME!

Here are some pics of the food court (we served tacos, baked goods and punch)
Divine Nature was a beauty supply store....Faith was a shoes store...
Integrity was a Jewelry store...
Individual Works was a clothing boutique...Choice and Accountability was a Bank...
And Knowledge was a bookstore...(this one was my project)...

Heather & Jon said...

yeah yeah... send me some info. Can't guarantee it would be in our price range... but it's worth a shot. We're trying to cut out expenses in our lives right now rather than add more than what we got on our plates right now! But yeah.. let me know!!

Trumps said...
