The Woodlands, TX — More than 700 guests filled the ballroom at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center for the fourth annual Giving Goes Glam: A Gorgeous Excuse to do Something Good Fashion Show hosted by the Junior League of The Woodlands (JLTW) and Interfaith of The Woodlands. The spectacular show raised more than $270,000 which will benefit the programs and services offered by both organizations.
The premier runway show by Houston’s own fashion icon, Saks Fifth Avenue, featured eight community models wearing an array of spring trends from top designers. The models, selected by a committee for their ongoing dedication to the community through volunteerism were: Ashley Bowersock, Mary-Kathryn D’Agostino, Ali May, Jena McCrann, Vicki Richmond, Ann Ryder, Angela Strong, and Valerie Vogt.
“The fashion show was simply sensational,” said Dr. Ann Snyder, President and CEO of Interfaith of The Woodlands. “On behalf of both nonprofits, we are truly grateful for the
community’s support of this event, and we look forward to another incredible production next year.”
Fashion designer Elaine Turner served as the event Emcee, and guests had the chance to win “fashion displays” created and donated by local boutiques. The event featured an incredible raffle and silent auction including items from Tiffany & Co., Henri Bendel, Mackenzie Childs, and many others.
“This event just gets bigger and better every year. We are so thankful to the community for being so supportive of the important work the Junior League of The Woodlands and Interfaith of The Woodlands does each day in our community. The entire committee worked extremely hard and the show was simply fantastic,” said Junior League of The Woodlands President, Julia Dell.
Top sponsors for the event included Presenting Sponsors ($30,000) The Woodlands Mall and Market Street The Woodlands; Dior Dolls ($10,000) Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital, George & Dianne Lindahl, and Richie’s Specialty Pharmacy.
