Join The Atlanta Women’s Foundation and Bloomingdale’s at Lenox Square for a fashion and shopping event on Tuesday, April 22 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Favorite Atlanta stylistas will model their enviable looks, including Danita Knight, Elizabeth Noe, Lisa Cannon Taylor, Kimberly Euston, and Ché Watkins.  Day to evening looks will also be presented by fashion stylists Molly Webb and Jordan Wright from The Spin Style Agency; Trina Small of BabyShopaholic; and Dana LeBoeuf and Blake Thibodeau of Cultured Blog.

After the runway presentation, the fashion experts will serve as personal stylists and take guests shopping in Bloomingdale’s for the latest spring looks. 10% of the purchases will be donated to the Atlanta Women’s Foundation.

The evening of fashion also features special guest model Shanay Benton, 2012 winner of the Sue Wieland Embracing Possibility Shining Example honor.  Ms. Benton is an alumna of Create Your Dreams (CYD), a youth-enrichment program for students living in underserved areas of northwest Atlanta.  She has gone on to become a second grade teacher and a member of CYD’s board of directors.  In 2006, Sue Wieland and her husband John made a $1 million gift to AWF.  Each year AWF honors their generous gift with the Sue Wieland Embracing Possibility Award.  The award is a special grant of $10,000 given each year at AWF’s Numbers Too Big To Ignore fundraising luncheon to a nonprofit organization based on the organization’s work with an individual women or girl, which has resulted in significant change in her life.

Those unable to attend can still support AWF.  Shop at Bloomingdale’s any time from April 21 to 23, ask for a duplicate receipt, and mail the duplicate receipt to AWF at The Atlanta Women’s Foundation, attn.: Wendy Kelley, 50 Hurt Plaza SE, Suite 401, Atlanta, GA 30303.
