About Fundraising in Style: Designers take matters in to their own hands and create a series of shopping events that work in today’s economic climate. What could be a better way to encourage people to shop then to have a fun evening with music, drinks, and high-end clothing and accessories at discounted prices, while simultaneously supporting a great cause? Fundraise-in-Style plans on doing similar events throughout the year with different non-profit organizations in a variety of venues so that shoppers from all over the city have a chance to purchase both their spring and fall collections at wallet friendly prices. We will keep you posted on our upcoming events.
