Down the Shore with...Paige Wolf

Paige Wolf of Paige Wolf Public Relations is *the* girl about town. Not only does this outstanding PR gal write the fabulous "Paige Turner" newsletter, but she's also organizing a fundraiser for Career Wardrobe, a great charity that helps women in need.

She's also has some shore memories, so let's go Down the Shore with Paige!

1. What do you consider 'your' shore town and why?My grandmother has a shore house in Ventnor and my parents are big fans of Atlantic City, so I usually stay in that area when I visit. But I much prefer the simplicity of Ocean City’s boardwalk – French fries, funnel cake, and Ferris wheels!

2. What was your favorite ride on Wonderland Pier?
When I was a kid I loved all the roller coasters and spinny rides. Now I am close to 30 and my belly can’t handle all that motion! I’d rather stick to the games at this point!

3. What are your thoughts on one of my favorite Jersey shore foods, the upcake? OK, you introduced me to Upcakes and it was love at first bite – sweet and delish! The icing all over is brilliant and the flavors are fabulous! Bailys Irish Cream!

4. Where do you like to go now at the Jersey Shore?
Atlantic City has improved tremendously in the past five years. It used to be way seedier, and now there are so many great restaurants and way better shopping. It’s so nice to see them trying to be more like Vegas, but there is still a ways to go.

5. Tell us about Career Wardrobe.
The Career Wardrobe is the nation’s largest nonprofit organization that provides women in transition with free professional clothing and educational opportunities to help them successfully find and retain employment. The Wardrobe’ services empower women by inspiring the confidence necessary to achieve self-sufficiency for themselves and their families. The Career Wardrobe also offers a Gateway to Success Seminar Series, where volunteers with expertise in fashion, financial management, employment law and human resources present monthly seminars on personal and professional development. The organization helps about 5,000 women a year!
Our seventh annual fundraiser, A Perfect Fit: Fashioning Futures For Women will be held Wednesday, June 11, 2008 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at World CafĂ© Live in Philadelphia. The evening includes a fashion presentation by local media personalities, live music by Philadelphia singer-songwriter Christine Havrilla, and a live auction of handbags inspired and autographed by national celebrities. This year’s event incorporates the theme “Living an Empowered Life,” and includes a keepsake resource program book with articles detailing how women can take control of their personal and professional lives.

6. How can people get involved in the event?
Tickets are only $60 and are available online, Or they can call (215) 568-6693. The wardrobe also always has volunteer opportunities available.

7. I also know you're 'green minded.' What are some easy things you can do to go green?
There are so many super easy things! For instance, there is no excuse to not be using CFL light bulbs which also save time and money. Recycling is easier than ever –I know in my area we don’t even have to separate – paper, plastic, bottles, and cans can all go in one bin! And just say no to plastic bags! It is much more comfortable and convenient to carry one of the many reusable totes or even a large shoulder bag.

I'm donating a shore themed basket to the event. If you our your company would like to add to the basket, send me an email at jenmiller27 [at] gmail [dot] com.
