Happily Ever After: A Couture for a Cause Spring Showcase

Last fall, local designers rocked the runway at Couture for a Cause, with two designers taking home top prizes for their ready-to-wear and couture looks. See what last year’s winning designers — Tiffany Saini and Nicky Relyea — are doing now at Happily Ever After: A Couture for a Cause Spring Showcase on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at Peachy Keen in Cary.

Happily Ever After gets underway at 5 p.m. at Peachy Keen, a designer clothing boutique in Cary, NC. Tickets are $15 online and include complimentary wine and hors d’oeuvres. Guests will get an exclusive look at new lines from local designers Tiffany Saini and Nicky Relyea, then participate in a special styling presentation with Peachy Keen’s creative director, Karly Hankin, exploring the inspiration behind the new lines.

Guests will shop a silent auction featuring items from local businesses. Guests can also shop Peachy Keen’s spring and summer styles, with 10% of sales benefiting Activate Good.

Happily Ever After: A Couture for a Cause Spring Showcase will raise funds to support Activate Good’s programs, including outreach to volunteers, days of service (such as the 9/11 Day of Service and National Family Volunteer Day), and the Activate Schools program, which teaches teens the value of volunteering and empowers them to become community leaders.

Featured Charity at our Launch Party!

 

So, one of the visions I had when I realized I wanted to move forward with starting triFABB was to get local charities involved. I think one of the things that’s so powerful about the “blog” and “social media” platforms is the ability to connect and reach people.

And with so many amazing bloggers in this area, why not use our platforms to connect and reach people for good and the benefit of our local community?

Well, I am SO excited that we are going to have a featured charity at our launch party on Thursday at Fab’rik and we’re going to be holding a small drive for them.

The charity is Transforming Hope Ministries out of Durham, North Carolina. Transforming Hope is a local non-profit that was started last year to raise money and awareness to stop human trafficking.

AND, in July of 2012, Transforming Hope opened central North Carolina’s FIRST safe home for young girls who have been rescued out of the sex trafficking industry.

How amazing is that? 

It’s such a huge issue that is so often overlooked – and it’s an issue that desperately needs our attention.

So, this Thursday, if you are attending our launch party, you are encouraged, but by NO MEANS required, to bring an item for Emma’s Home – the name of the recently opened Safe Home.

Emma’s Home has a Target List of items they need that you can look through. ALSO, Emma’s home has an ongoing need of some general toiletry essentials for the girls: 

  • cleaning supplies
  • tampons
  • pads
  • shaving cream & disposable razors
  • disposable cameras

Transforming Hope is an incredible organization that’s doing an amazing things by rescuing these young girls out of such a horrible industry. Thank you so much for supporting them!

You can connect with Transforming Hope on the Web, Facebook, and Twitter.

If you have questions about Transforming Hope, our launch party, or triFABB in general, please let us know!

We are SO excited for Thursday! Email us – trifabb@gmail.com to RSVP for the launch party!
