Our 2018 Chez Couture event was a huge success and raised more than $130,000! The reception and fashion show were held at the fabulous home of our very generous donors – Kristen and Greg Knight – and our models rocked the runway in on-trend fashions from Bloomingdale’s Orlando, The Mall at Millenia.
Everyone enjoyed the home’s amazing modern West Indies décor, mimosas on the pool deck with uninterrupted views of the lake, and a stirring speech from our guest speaker, Demetria French. Guests also enjoyed browsing the selections at the Dora Mae Jewelry pop-up shop. Special thanks to Christi Ashby, our program emcee.
We could not have done any of it without the generous support of our sponsors: The Father’s Table Foundation, Panera Bread, Mick Night & John Pinel, Realtors, Sandy and Blake Hostetter, Charles Clayton Construction, Derrow Dermatology, Jackson Kirschner Architects and Seaside National Bank & Trust.
Our young fashion models were styled from head-to-toe by Melanie Pace and her crew, with hair styles and makeup by the team at Gary Lambert Salon. They all did a great job in calming the nerves of our little ones and making them feel like the stars they already are! All of the children have been supported through programs of the Foundation.
Thanks as well to all of our wonderful hosts and attendees for caring about local kids in foster care!
