What do you get when you cross an Alpha Girl and Fashion? A kick-ass fashion show designed to showcase fashion, firearms, and self “offense” options to encourage more women to be proactive about their safety.
Marilyn Smolenski of Nickel and Lace, a female concealed carry holster designer, and Karen Bartuch of AlphaGirls, a company that provides tactical and “self-offense” training services and gear, have combined efforts to host the Firearms and Fashion Show. The goal of the show is to empower women with personal safety skills and options and encourage them to be proactive about their own self-protection. In order to reach even more women, including those that do not have experience with firearms, combatives, tactics, etc., Smolenski and Bartuch decided to combine those sometimes sensitive topics with a more traditional topic – fashion.
Special guests include Natalie Foster from Girls Guide to Guns , yours truly, the Love Lawyer, and Top Shot Season 3 competitor Sara Ahrens. Numerous prizes will be raffled as well as a 50/50 raffle. Proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will go to I Am Never Quit; a charity dedicated to active duty military, wounded veterans and/or their immediate families.
The event is being held on March 2nd, 2013, doors open at 6:30pm at HEAT-Armor factory, 4400 W 45th, Chicago, IL 60632. Tickets are $40 online at www.alphagirlpower.com or $45 at the door – hors d’ouevres, drinks and runway show included.
Hope to see all of you there!!
