Fashion Meets Compassion at Annual Saks Fifth Avenue Event

austin children's shelterWhat annual event combines local fashion with philanthropy? Austinites from Belterra to Olympic Heights are heading to Great Hills on March 23rd to find out.

That Friday, seventy prominent Austin Families will hit the Saks Fifth Avenue runway for the 5th Annual Fashion for Compassion: a chic spring style-show benefiting the Austin Children’s Shelter!

“When we were trying to think about a theme for this year’s Fashion for Compassion event, “family” is the first thing that came to mind,” says Co-Chair Dr. John Hogg. “To us, and to our fabulous model families, this event is all about supporting Austin Children’s Shelter in gratitude for the loving, nurturing care they provide the vulnerable, abused, and neglected children of Central Texas.”

Austin Children’s Shelter offers a safe haven for kids who have been removed from their homes due to abuse, abandonment or neglect. Established in 1984, it provides high quality care and critical services including therapy, medical, vision and dental care, and educational assistance.

On Friday, March 23rd, why not get casual-chic, grab your family or friends, and head to Northwest Austin in support of a good cause? While you’re there, make a purchase or two, and mention Austin Children’s Center. Saks Fifth Avenue will donate 10% of all purchases made during the event to the cause!

Fashion for Compassion starts at 6:30 p.m with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and will be followed by a half-hour live auction. The celebrity fashion show begins at 8 p.m. sharp, followed by fine dessert and music. Enjoy food tastings by Austin’s own Manuel’s Restaurant, Green Pastures, Lambert’s and more. Call (512)499-0090 for more details!
