The far from ordinary 3rd Annual “A Blue Christmas” event was a magical scene from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. After a few months of preparation, the doors opened to the community for fun and holiday cheer. Each of the Blue Bird Pinups dressed as a character from the classic 1967 holiday movie, it was definitely a night to remember!
At the front door the first 100 guests received a hand crafted ornament by our Pinup girls. Our newest volunteers provided 4 craft tables to the youngest of the crowd where they could make a snow globes, ornaments and even finger paint. Everyone that attended was also able to get a holiday photo by Epic Photography by Char Daw (view photos here). We even had a special appearance by the beautiful, Miss Navajo Nation McKeon Dempsey!
The rich melodies of Twang Deluxe and Stanlie Kee & Step In brought smiles to the crowd along with our dear friend, Def-i who brought his urban beats to the event. Raising funds was our goal for the night and we were so grateful to have a table full of prizes for our door prize giveaway and raffle. We also brought back our Blue Bird Pinup hair booth which as an absolute hit! The ladies lined up to get their very own retro hairdo with a holiday hair flower also made by our very own Pinup Girls.
Every year we look forward to sharing this night with the Ft. Defiance Community and fundraising for St. Michaels Association of Special Education. This year we were able to raise well over $600 to donate direct to SMASE for their annual ski trip to Telluride. We hope to keep this annual event going for years to come and are looking forward to another successful event!
