Tartans & Tidings + Preppy Plaid Photo Contest





Hey Preppy Friends... The party of the season is fast approaching! If you live in the DC/MD/NJ/VA area this is one event you should not miss!

We know you love all things Tartan and we know you love good food, good music, not to mention fabulous signature cocktails and an open bar. The popular band, Burnt Sienna is booked for this grand event that will be held on Saturday December 11th 7pm - 11pm at the Spectacular Evergreen Museum and Library. Not only will this be "the" event of the season, surely not to be missed, but it is a benefit for a great cause. 

100% of the proceeds from the Tartans & Tidings silent auction plus a portion of proceeds from ticket sales will support Baltimore SquashWise. This extraordinary nonprofit organization provides middle school students from Baltimore City with a safe and structured place to exercise their bodies and minds during after-school hours by combining squash instruction, academic tutoring, mentoring and community service.

Bring your friends and your holiday cheer and book your tickets now (while they are still available.) Preppy Bloggers and Readers can get a general admissions ticket for $59. That's $16 off the regular price! Or, if the (fabulously preppy) gift bag  (click to view link) is what you're after you can purchase the VIP Ticket. Please note that the special general admissions ticket price is available to Preppy Bloggers and Readers and can only be purchased through this link.

But wait...there’s more! We’re offering our favorite Preppy Bloggers and Readers a chance to win a pair of VIP tickets!
