Announcing the 2014 Golden Gate Gala Social Butterfly Photo Contest

In keeping with the 2014 theme of "Stand Proud: We're Not Invisible, We're Invincible!", we are going to show the world how we play at the Red Hat Society's Golden Gate Gala International Convention through our 2nd Annual Social Butterfly Photo Contest.


Participating in the Social Butterfly Photo Contest is easy as 1-2-3! 
1.Snap photos throughout the convention on your Smartphones or tablets.
2. Upload and write a caption for the photos using the #RHSSanFran2014 hashtag.
3. Share them on any one of the following social media outlets:

 
           Facebook            
Twitter           Instagram  

           
Please note that you do not have to use all three of these social media outlets to be considered in the contest. Just use whichever outlet you are most familiar with. 

How can you win?
We are looking for two women who best convey the essence of a Red Hat Society convention through their photos. The first winner will receive her wings on Friday, August 22 at the Bling Rush Romp, and the second winner will be announced on Saturday, August 23 at the Chocolate Fantasy Ball.

Let's get the conversation started! Share photos of your packing lists or any goodies you are bringing to the convention and practice using the official convention hashtag now. We can't wait to see your pictures and interact with you!
