Chic Happening: In Love With Fashion….
Once again, I am telling you about a project that I feel proud to be a part of in however small way that I am (Host Committee). It was conceived by Gracie Cavnar and Jeff Shell, as a perfect union of fashion and dining, called Dress For Dinner.DFD is designed as a series of seasonal fashion events held throughout the year that celebrate the art of dining.
100% of the proceeds from these events benefit Recipe for Success Foundation, founded by Gracie Cavnar. RFS is the forefront of a national movement to combat childhood obesity. This problem, which is reaching epic proportions, has become a focus of First Lady, Michelle Obama, and is a high priority for another cause near and dear to me, the American Heart Association. We must help today’s children learn to eat properly andRFS delivers nutrition education to elementary students in their classrooms. Gracie has been able to accomplish this with the support of 58 of Houston’s finest chefs as her educators.
In Love WithFashion, our second Dress for Dinner event is being sponsored by Tootsies and is another example of pairing our town’s favorite retailers and designers with our most prominent chefs, foodies and winemakers to bring all together to this very special evening.
This event will also feature talented jewelry designer, Joan Horning, who is donating all of her evening’s profits to this charity………plus it’s time to think Spring so there will be a Fashion Show of Tootsies’ best Spring collections!
Soooo, all of this makes for an event not to be missed!
