Team Shrinking Jeans Bash | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans


****Our Team Shrinking Jeans Bash has come to an end! We are in the process of evaluating, tabulating and calculating the numbers, so stay tuned for the announcement of the winners on Wednesday!****

That’s right! You heard us, we’re hosting a bash and we are inviting you to join in the fun! We will be featuring healthy, delicious party foods, drinks, and PRIZES! Oh, so many prizes, and we can guarantee there is something to suit just about everyone! We like to do it big at the Sisterhood, so this isn’t going to be any ordinary party. We are going to live it up for an entire TWO WEEKS! Pour yourself a glass of wine (or grab a beer),  slip into your party dress (or suit), and read on for the 4-1-1. Bring a guest (or ten!), spread the word, and decorate your blog with this groovy button for two weeks. Have you joined our party? Grab this special badge, bling bling!

We are giving away door prizes  –lots and lots of door prizes– and a grand prize that involves MONEY! You can enter to win these magnificent prizes as many times as you want, AND you can win more than more than one prize! That’s right, you can walk away with a slew of prizes!

Here’s the details:

A $5 donation to Team Shrinking Jeans = 1 entry for the Door Prizes

A $25 donation to Team Shrinking Jeans = 1 entry for the Grand Prize and 5 entries for Door Prizes (meaning you have a potential to win SIX prizes)

Not familiar with Team Shrinking Jeans? Let us fill you in… We are a team of 16 women and 1 guy who have joined up with Team In Training through The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We are intensely training for a 1/2 marathon in San Diego in June, and we are raising a huge amount of money to benefit cancer research, patients, and their families -$48,900 to be exact. Each member of our team has their own reasons for taking on this journey, and many of us have special people that we are running or walking in honor of. You can read the heartfelt stories here.
