NATCHEZ – Ever wanted to dress up as Barbie? Ever wanted to dress up like Barbie and party with your friends while supporting a good cause at the same time?
The Pilgrimage Garden Club allows you and your friends to do just that. In fact, they give you two options. Barbiecore for a Cure is Friday, September 30 from 8-11 p.m. and Saturday, October 1 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m., both at the Carriage House Restaurant on the grounds of Stanton Hall.
Wear pink or dress like your favorite Barbie in pink. The cost is $50 per person and includes food and an open bar.
The best part is this: donations to the American Cancer Society will be accepted at the door and all breast cancer information will be provided.
“Move over the hoop skirts! The Pilgrimage Garden Club is embracing the hottest new fashion aesthetic of the moment, Barbiecore! said Noelle Stewart, co-chair of the event.
“This fun fashion trend is vibrant, pink, bubbly and inspired by everyone’s favorite plastic doll, Barbie. With the upcoming Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie and Valentino and Balenciaga unveiling hot pink fall collections, Barbiecore for he PGC Cure is embracing the latest rage for a good cause,” she said.
The event is open to everyone, she said, and will kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month while raising money for the American Cancer Society, Stewart said.
“Friday night we’ll have lots of things to do, like lots of cute photo opportunities,” she said. “We will have a convertible for taking photos, a pink carpet to enter the event. We will have a life-size pink Barbie box for photos. You are not required to wear pink, but we encourage everyone to wear pink or dress like their favorite Barbie in pink There will be food and a DJ and a pink Barbie disco Friday night will have a disco theme.
Friday night decorations will be left at the Carriage House on Saturday for all to enjoy.
“Wayne is working on a Barbie menu, and we hope all the parents of little girls will come to the Carriage House for lunch on Saturday,” Stewart said. “Little girls can bring their Barbies to lunch on Saturday.”
Donations to the American Cancer Society will be accepted Friday night at the door and Saturday.
“These donations do not go through us. Checks should be made payable to the American Cancer Society and will be delivered directly to them,” she said. “We hope everyone will come for this. It will be a lot of fun.”
The Friday night party will take place at the Carriage House restaurant on the grounds of Stanton Hall, with great music, dancing, heavy appetizers and an open bar. Tickets are $50 per person. On Saturday, the party will continue for the Carriage house lunch crowd.
“After COVID, I think a photo of this glorious color is just what we need right now to lift our spirits and energize us all,” said Marsha Colson, President of PGC. “It’s no wonder it’s become a global trend.”
Donations to the American Cancer Society will be accepted at the door.
“We all know someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer,” Colson said. “We invite everyone to join us and dance on their pink platforms to inspire hope for the future and a cure.”
