For women to get pampered and ready for Valentine’s Day, W Hotel and New York based lingerie company Hanky Panky sponsored a pre-Valentine’s party choosing Becky’s Fund‘s as the designated charity. With sultry music playing in the background, guests enjoyed cool pop rocks strawberry martinis, sumptuous Georgetown cupcakes and other delectable treats.

To create a romantic ambiance, the event venue W Hotel’s posh Altitude Bar was lit by dim red lights.

Women purchased all types of beauty, romance enhancement, and massage products at a mini-treatment station set up by the ever fabulous Bliss Spa.

The highlight of the event was Hanky Panky‘s customization station and pop-up boutique. This was the first event of its kind that Hanky Panky has staged outside of New York City. Welcome to DC!

The evening centered around the brand’s bright red and fuchsia panties made out of lacy fabric. With such a name, it was hard for women not to buy a personalized pair. Staff at the customization station delighted guests by decorating thongs with Swarovski crystal letters as well as symbols like peace signs, hearts and stars.

Becky’s Fund puts on a variety of programs in order to further its mission of preventing domestic violence. College tours, fundraisers, research, and advocacy are all part of Becky’s Fund.

Guests included Stan Kasten, Angie Goff, Deborah Stanko, Lisa Caligiuri, Alex Gagne, Polina Govbanov, Megan Riddle, Erika Gutierrez, Reza Khadiri and Tom Spahr.
