Fashion With Compassion: The San Antonio Food Bank Raises Money in Style
The month of March has been an eventful one to say the least, but the best events I attended this first month of Spring were the two I enjoyed curtesy of the San Antonio Food Bank, and their efforts to give fundraising a bit of fashionable flair.
The first was a little Sip and See at a fabulous San Antonio shopping gem that holds it's residency in Alamo Heights, Sloan Hall. The designers, who had been hand picked by the visionaries behind the local fashion house, had a few of their fantastic collections displayed prior to the actual fundraising event so that the philanthropically fashion-obsessed could take a little peek at the pieces before they walked to runway.
I must say, the designers and Sloan Hall did not disappoint. You can see a few of the beautiful works of wearable art below.
The next week, The SA Food Bank, along with it's event donors, turned just another casual Wednesday into a night of sensational fashion, food, and philanthropy.
Fresh spring fashion inspiration hit the runway in an atmosphere that took guests on a trip around the U.S. with signature foods, a display of classic American muscle cars, and a few odes to some of our country's most notable road trip worthy landmarks.
Although fashion was forward, and much fun was had, the real reason these events were so special to me this month had nothing to do with the pretty clothes or good company, but everything to do with the impact a fundraiser such as this has on my local community. The Food Bank of San Antonio is able to feed 7 children with every single dollar raised. Every. Single. Dollar. If ever you're looking to make an impact on your community, it doesn't get easier, or more important than this. I'm proud that I was able to help put food on a local family's table this month.
Before I say goodbye on the blog for today, I just want to take a little moment to truly thank the San Antonio Food Bank for the opportunity to participate in the extraordinary and tireless work they do to better our community here. - you all are super heroes.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today.
