    Olivia Coffey I've always had a passion for fashion. At an early age, I realized that what you wear has a lot to do with how you feel and can raise your self-confidence. My desire is to help women discover and develop their personal style, build a functional wardrobe and feel and look good in their clothes. Cabi designs are exclusively for women of all ages, lifestyles and body styles. Fashion is more than the clothes we wear: it shares who we are, how we live, and speaks to our story. Connect with me and together we’ll build a wardrobe that amplifies your full and dynamic life. Contact me for a private appointment or give your friends the gift of style and schedule a Fashion Experience! View the collection @ oliviacoffey.cabionline.com👚👗👠👛

    Gail Hooks Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Summer but keeping cool! I just want to share the information that the wine my son and I recently launched is now available at select area Safeway stores and at Total Wines in Virginia. Please try to find the wine and support us, the wine is made in a lighter style perfect for these hot Summer days and is great as an accompaniment to Summer foods or on its own. Thank you, Gail

    Margaret Hren Hello Everyone. I'm a new member to NAPW, and hoping I'm not too out of line asking for help. My non-profit organization, St. John's Community Services (SJCS) is hosting our annual Grapes of Gratitude Wine Tasting Benefit on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at the Pepco Edison Gallery in Washington DC from 5:30 PM - 8:30- PM. For those of you who may not be familiar with SJCS, we are one of the oldest non profits founded in Washington DC, and this annual benefit is to raise awareness and continued funding for our nationally recognized innovative programs and services which support children and adults with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities, as well as other individuals seeking meaningful lives by removing barriers to employment, housing, social and recreational opportunities in DC and Northern VA. The dollars raised by this event helps cover needed expenses unmet by federal and state funding for our two state offices. This can include specialized equipment, recreational opportunities and clothing. Funds raised will continue to ensure that the people supported by SJCS can live comfortably and safely in their chosen communities, and participate in activities that enhance their quality of life. The benefit will have sommeliers presenting 16 wines from around the world, a tasting menu, an exhibit of original artworks donated and for bid/sale by artists from our ART Options programs, and a silent auction of merchandise, services and entertainment donated by local businesses and individuals. I'm in search of sponsors for our event for both the event and items for our silent auction. If any of you would be interested in helping this great organization I would love to set up and appointment to come meet you personally to show you what I can do for you as a sponsor and donor to our event. Right now our event website is under construction, but please contact me directly at 202-274-2448 to set-up a one-on-one with me. Our main website is www.sjcs.org. Remember, charity starts on a local level, and what better way to support the Washington DC and Northern VA communities. Please call me ASAP.
