On Monday, September 16th I attended one of New Jersey’s Hottest events of the year. Star Dog launched their new “Give Back New Jersey” t-shirt line at Bottega Salon & Boutique in Cedar Grove, NJ. This red carpet event featured all types of guests including special appearances by “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”s very own Melissa Gorga and “Big Rich Texas” reality star Kalyn Braun!
For those of you who are not familiar with Star Dog, they are an absolutely wonderful organization that donates t-shirts to children in need. Read more about Star Dog and how to provide a brand new shirt to needy children in my previous article here: Featured Fling! Denise Ricciotti… Founder Of Star Dog!
Guests enjoyed champagne upon arrival, as well as throughout the night, and enjoyed delicious personalized cupcakes by Babycakes by Janet, as well as other delectable desserts and drinks. Bottega Boutique featured their trendy jewelry, hair accessories, clutches, hats, and scarves, which were all available to purchase:
They had some beautiful pieces…this is just one table!
