Hey, what’s up? Got any plans Saturday…?
Ok good because there is an event in downtown Raleigh that you can’t miss! It’s Couture for a Cause, the annual fashion show fundraiser for Activate Good. You may remember me writing about this event last year, but let me tell you, it’s only going getting better.
Activate Good pairs local fashion designers and local charities and non-profits. The designers team up with the organization to design two looks inspired by their mission… Project Runway-style.
The event starts with a Hollywood style red carpet entrance and photos, moves to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and then dives into the fashion show. The designers show off their looks on the runway and then [drumroll please!] the stakes are raised with a live auction! This part is SO much fun – adrenaline pumping, a good cause, awesome clothes and did I mention adrenaline (only if you bid!).
Best of all, the proceeds benefit the local Research Triangle area by supporting Activate Good and the 100+ local non-profits they work with.
So, don’t miss it! This Saturday, November 10th at Marbles in downtown Raleigh — doors open at 7:30pm and the show starts at 8pm on the nose. Get there early to bid on silent auction items and make sure you get a great seat.
