Second to None - Reinvesting in Hope Fundraiser

On May 1st I attended a wonderful charity event at Devonian Gardens that raised awareness for homeless youth and The Alex Community Health Centre. Funds were raised from clothing donations and silent auction items. Some of the designer pieces were worn on the runway by volunteer models to be sold off after the show. All the donations were amazing and the support from the community was incredible. 

Some pieces were so nice that women were making a mad dash to the racks right after the show to get that little Gucci dress or the Burberry shorts and the many, many other lovely pieces first. 

I learned a lot about the needs of youth in the city and the incredible people working to provide help to them like a portable dentist bus that provided care to children who otherwise would not get the care because of unawareness or funds. The support that this charity provides is vital to this city and improving the circumstances of youth. Funds raised will be helping to get items that are inaccessible and help those in need move from poverty to stability and forward with jobs and provide proper clothing and support.
 
Overall it was a informative night and filled with fashion, a favourite thing of mine! I even won a silent auction item. A shirt & decal from Studio Cartel.
