LWRWC, Lissette & Foxy Lady Partner for Charity
Fabulous fashion and fundraising went hand in hand as the Lakewood Ranch Women’s Club, Designer Lissette L Montreal and Foxy Lady Stores in Siesta Key & St. Armand’s Circle, successfully partnered to raise over $600.00 to benefit the three LWRWC adopted charities.
The two day Trunk Show was held on Friday, January 29th at the Foxy Lady Store in Siesta Key and Saturday, January 30th at Foxy Lady West St. Armand’s Circle. For every Lissette L Montreal item tried on, Lissette L and Foxy Lady together donated $2.00 to help HOPE Family Services, SMART Riding Therapies and SOLVE Maternity Homes with their most critical needs.
Ladies from the LWRWC and representatives from the charities served as floor models. Dressed in stunning Lissette L pants, tops and jackets, they mingled with customers, showing-off the outfits and sharing information about the charities supported by this fundraising event.
The most poignant moment of this charitable fundraiser was when Designer Lissette L donated a gorgeous $428 three piece outfit (jacket, blouse and pants) to Jennifer, a lovely, courageous young woman who was helped by HOPE Family Services to overcome the trauma of horrific domestic abuse and start a successful new life.
