This past Friday night, I attended a fun Ladies Only event – Diva Nikita, which benefited the YWCA Focus Forward Program, an emergency and transitional housing program for women and children who are homeless.
It turned out to be a fun night, and I’m so happy that the proceeds benefited such a great cause in our area.
They had booths around the perimeter of the room, showcasing everything from purses to jewelry, art, and a hair salon!
The dinner served was pretty good – I didn’t really know what to expect food-wise, but I made myself a great meal.
They had 2 set-ups and each table had a big salad bar and a “make your own pasta station”, with a chef that mixed it and heated it up for you.
I grabbed a salad with romaine, spring mix, olives, broccoli, cauliflower and balsamic dressing plus some bowtie pasta with zucchini, squash, onions, mushrooms, and marinara.
And then – the desserts!
They were passed around and were all bite-sized, which was perfect. I tried one of each.
First, a little lemon bar that was my favorite of the evening.
Light, refreshing, and the perfect size!
There was also this chocolate cake-type dessert on a stick.
It was good – very fudgy, but I really liked the lemon bar better!
And deep-fried twinkies.
Pretty good! It was actually really light and not greasy at all – but I don’t think I could eat an entire twinkie if it was fried. This one bite was just enough.
Here’s a few highlights:
The dress above was made out of shredded paper!
They had some great gift baskets (two different people at my table won!) and also had dance lessons!
Plus, I had my picture taken with Miss Monica from K92’s Morning Thang – our favorite morning show! We listen to it every weekday, and she is hilarious.
All in all, Diva Nikita was a great event and I’m happy I was able to attend.
