Fashion, Mission, & Mingle: Tornado Relief

July 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Donations Requested

On May 27, 2019, 15 tornadoes ripped through  the Miami Valley,  affecting thousands of people and leaving at least 600 families homeless.  Like many of you, we too were out assisting with the cleanup  and relief efforts, and are working to make sure that not only the long term needs of these families are met, we also want to make sure that we are also showing continuous support for those grassroots efforts who stepped up in a major way to help these families. 

Our anniversary is always celebrated via community outreach initiatives and this year in celebration of our 6th anniversary, we will host Fashion, Mission, & Mingle  where  fashion and outreach meet.  

While supporting the Tornado Relief efforts of  SoLoved during this event, we are also  providing opportunities for Fashion Professionals to gain additional knowledge about the business and marketing aspects of the industry as well! Fashion, Mission & Mingle will feature presentations and a  panel discussion with industry insiders. Believe us when we say,  you don’t want to miss this celebration.
