19th Annual Women Helping Women Luncheon and Fashion Show
The fashion show luncheon benefits the Women’s programs at Grace Centers of Hope, one of the largest homeless and rehabilitation centers in southeast Michigan. The fashion show featured women in the program alongside professional models to showcase spring fashions.
Grace Centers of Hope allows addicted and abused individuals to live in a safe community with boundaries, accountability, life skills classes, and counseling. I really like the One Year Life Skills Program for all the local women who needs their life back. I am never a big fan of just donating money to those is in need. I believe giving them the ability to be independent is the real salvation.
You can watch this FB live for the beginning of the show hosted by TV20 host Ann Marie LaFlamme.
I have to say, this is such a powerful event which showcases the women & children of Grace Centers of Hope and their amazing journey through this program. When fashion has a purpose, it becomes so much more meaningful. Here is another short FB live story by one of the women who is in this program.
Here is more info about this women’s program from their website just in case if you are wondering what exactly they do. 😉
“This one-year rehabilitation program helps homeless women and families transition to stable housing, sobriety, and employment…”
Services in the Life Skills Program include:
Access to Education and Career Center
Hands of Hope Childcare Center
Ok, now let’s talk about the fabulous fashion show. This high fashion event featured top designers from Michigan, Bonnie Foley, creator of Christian LaRue, Katerina Bocci who just launched her bridal collection and Cynthia LaMaid who has dressed the stars like Jennifer Aniston and Lenny Kravitz. I have been to a lot of luncheons and fashion shows, I have to say this is one of the most organized and high quality shows. Everything is on time and efficient.
Anyway, below are some of my favorite looks from the show.
