Fashion Stars for a Cause Kicks Off

Philanthropist Yvonne Crum is leading the fight for suicide prevention in our community with the launch of a new event called Fashion Stars For A Cause.  (If this concept sounds vaguely familiar it's because this event is the reincarnation of the gala previously known as Fresh Faces of Fashion.) The kickoff party was held at Diamond Doctor last Friday night to announce this year's Honorary Chairs, Rick and Melody Rogers.  Among those in attendance were DFW Style Daily editor Lisa Petty, Imran Sheikh, John Clutts, Connie Dieb, Beverly Drive's Carolyn Tillery and Lauren Bacic and celebrity stylist Laurie Graham.  I am honored to be a part of this year's event as a Fashion Star and encourage you to join me at the March 21 gala to be held at the Dallas Country Club. Tickets are $250 each or $2500 for a table and you'll enjoy a wonderful evening of fun, fashion, cocktails and gourmet dining. Message me through any of my social channels if you are interested in buying a ticket through me.  If you can't make the event, you can still participate in the raffle. Enter to win a 3-night trip to Cabo San Lucas and a slew of amenities for $50 or 3 tickets for $100. Click for details.
