Two events celebrating women unfold in Newport TONIGHT, June 27, 2013. The first is Give & Glam at Belle Mer, an evening of beauty, fashion, cocktails and shopping. From 7-10pm, mix and mingle with other like-minded beauty mavens, peruse things that bling and climb aboard The Fashion Truck, straight from Boston and stacked with clothing, fab jewelry, accessories, and more. You can do it all while knowing you did a little philanthropy as $5 from each ticket goes to Hasbro Children’s Hospital. The event is almost sold out but limited tickets are still available ($35 with a $2.92 fee) and can be purchased by CLICKING HERE.
