Last week, one of our local East Cobb SNOBS businesses, Ivy Lane, hosted a huge charity fashion show to benefit two amazing charities. There was an auction and raffle prizes form local vendors. The models were locals who showed off some Ivy Lane’s new summer merchandise. The event cost was $30, included a gift bag freebies, a fully catered meal and live music.
Two great local foundations benefited.
One hundred percent of the proceeds for the fashion show go towards The Lutzie 43 Foundation and The Helping Hand Foundation. The Helping Hand Foundation helps local families after devastating life events, such as a lost job, home disaster, major illness or crisis. The foundation provides financial support, resource access, and brings in local businesses and volunteers to assist people in need of emergency assistance, depending on that family’s individual needs.
The Lutzie 43 Foundation was founded in honor of the late Cobb County Resident and former Auburn football player Phillip Lutzenkirchen. After he was killed in a tragic car accident in 2013, family and friends began the foundation to sustain his memory and characteristics. The foundation works to develop character in young people, focusing on leadership, charity, compassion, honesty and faith. They are working on developing a curriculum for coaches and mentors to use. The foundation also has a scholarship program, a road race, and soon, a prom for children for special needs in Cobb County.
There’s still time!
If you missed the fashion show, it’s not too late to participate. If you make at least a $10 donation before May 8th, you will receive a beach tote, event t-shirt, $10.00 in-store coupon, Chic-fil-a meal card. Ivy Lane is a great place to shop for a Mother’s Day gift! The boutique is located in the same shopping area as Home Depot at the corner of Sandy Plains and Shallowford Road in Marietta.
