Fashion Forward Raises $18,000+ to Benefit Raleigh Community
Raleigh | March 16, 2015 – Belk Crabtree partnered with the Junior League of Raleigh to present the fourth annual Fashion Forward event Sunday, March 8. It was a night of fun, fashion and fundraising. Thanks to the generosity of Belk, Wells Fargo, multiple other sponsors and the support of JLR members and our community, we were able to raise more than $18,000 from this fun event. Proceeds from Fashion Forward funnel directly back into the community that the Junior League of Raleigh serves through our work with area nonprofits, including this year’s three Youth Forward participants, the Brentwood Boys & Girls Club, AventWest Children’s Mentoring, and the Heritage Park Community Learning Center. We are grateful for your support. Learn more about how you can get involved! Visit www.jlraleigh.org for more information.
