Parties with a pop twist

Singer-songwriter Sara Lynn has joined forces with local businesswomen to host a series fashion and music events in aid of a charity close to her heart.

Part fashion, part pop, and part commerce, Lynn’s “Gorgeous Pop Up Parties” celebrate empowerment of women in business – and help raise money for the BC SPCA’s biscuit fund.

The events feature fashion shows, local artisanal products, door prizes and live music. By joining together, she has a chance to share her music, while her business partners get to showcase their products and artistry, all while contributing to the welfare of animals.

“We are women supporting one another in business and sharing our love and concern for our four-legged friends,” she said.

Cloverdale’s Malary’s Fashion Network at 5755 176 Street hosts the first “pop up party” on April 14. Sara Lynn performs accompanied by Rob Hamilton.

Gift bags, prize draws and light refreshments. Partners include makeup artist Alejandra Thomassen, Michaud’s Salon and Spa, Sweet Piece Jewellery, and fashion collections by designers like Malene Grotrian. It starts at 6 p.m.

There’s another event at Muse Social Fashion House April 21 at 7 p.m. For more information and tickets, visit saralynnmusic.com
