If you are not aware of what The New Albany Classic is, I am SO glad you are reading this blog! To be honest before last year I didn’t know either, and I was shocked to find out that such a big, fun, magical event had been occurring right under my nose for 20 years!

If you grew-up in Columbus, you have heard of the Wexner Family, you don’t have to be from Columbus to be familiar with the name. As the original owner of Victoria’s Secret, Bath & Body Works, The Limited, basically everything that falls under L. Brands, the Wexner Family calls Columbus home. Abigail Wexner, wife to Les, has had a huge philanthropic impact on the city. Supporting numerous causes that have positive impacts, but most special to her is The New Albany Classic that supports The Center for Family Safety & Healing.

Make sure you read all the way to the bottom to find out how to ENTER-TO-WIN 2 Tickets to The Classic, this Sunday!

I was lucky enough to attend the inaugural, Coffee, Croissants & Carrots at the White Barn last year and was so excited to receive an invite again this year.

This year is especially exciting because The New Albany Classic is celebrating it’s 20th Anniversary! What better way to celebrate a big day than with Nick Jonas!!! Yes, you read that right, Nick Jonas {rumored to have slept with Kate Hudson} will be performing LIVE IN CONCERT! And the best part is, the concert is included in your ticket price!

As I mentioned The New Albany Classic is not just a family event in that it hosts all kinds of unique opportunities for families to enjoy together, it also supports local Columbus families by helping to break the cycle of family violence with all proceeds from the Classic going straight to support The Center for Family Safety and Healing.

The Classic has raised over $27 Million, aiding over 1,400 children who have been physically or sexually abused. Of that abuse 3% is physical the rest fall under the sexual abuse category.
With statistics like 1 in 4 women will be abused and 1 in 3 girls are in violent relationships you sadly begin to see the need for a center like this in our community.

The mission of The Center for Family Safety and Healing is clear – we must break the cycle of family violence and restore hope.

Every Hostess with the Mostest knows to send her guest home with a little thank you gift/goodie bag in-hand. Abigail and team outdid themselves again and sent us all home with a beautiful basket full of stunning vegetables grown on the Wexner Farm.

I cooked with every single one, even the sweet potatoes {my first time} and everything was beyond delicious!

If you haven’t found a reason to attend yet, let me just remind you this hunk of hotness will be performing. We are definitely attending Sunday for Nick, errrrrrrr… I mean for Evelyn to experience all of the magic!

See You Sunday!
