The Brunchettes of Emerald Coast Florida recently named August their annual DoBetter month; and this year they reached for the stars! Their favorite stars, in fact! The who’s who of the fictional crush world joined together to support local organizations Shelter House, a place for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, and Twin Cities Retirement Community with their need for reading glasses.
Instead of a monthly donation for swag, Brunchettes donated reading glasses to get raffle tickets and win some amazing fictional character gear. Many dressed to impress, emulating the one their geek heart beats for. Brunchettes repped fandoms from Marvel to True Blood to Outlander.
The discussion was delicious, and so were the specialty waffles that Julie’s Southern Joy had on special to celebrate National Waffle Day. Can a girl ask for more than talking hotties over mimosas and carbohydrates?
The Geek Girls of the Emerald Coast collected 143 pairs of reading glasses to donate. We think that makes this years DoBetter event a huge success!
