The Fashionable Ladies of the Mainline Enjoy the 15th Annual In Fashion Show

The Mainline Ladies Come out to Support Cancer Support Community

The Cancer Support Community (CSC) Greater Philadelphia held their 15th Annual “In Fashion!” Luncheon & Fashion Show in conjunction with Neiman Marcus. This year though they held the fundraiser on the Mainline at the Merion Cricket Club in Haverford and not in the store at King of Prussia Mall as had been done the past few years.

Mainline  For this year’s fundraiser, CSC partnered with Neiman Marcus who carries fashion designer Brunello Cucinelli clothing. Brunello Cucinelli’s ready-to-wear, handbag and shoe collections represent an expression of everyday luxury and sophistication, where comfort and style come together in an inseparable combination.

There was a pop up shopping area where guests could buy Brunello Cucinelli’s designs. 10% of the proceeds would go to the CSC. Cucinelli regularly donates 20% of his profits through the Brunello Cucinelli Foundation.

Many guests slid over to the other sides of the table to get the best view of the gorgeous clothes
There were audible ahhs for this beautiful outfit

It was a successful event. I loved the new venue. Please check out Cancer Support Community and all their wonderful services, and pass the word. There are so many wonderful organizations out there to help those in need. They need our support, but most of all they’re there if you need them. Many times people don’t realize these programs are available, unless they hear about them from their case worker.

You might recognize Jeanette Gillin and Jim Gillin as I traditionally photograph them at the Philly Car Show every January. He is seriously into cars, specialty cars like Porche’s which he picks up at auctions and then tinkers with them back to perfection.

Fashionable Ladies Who Lunch In Style For Philanthropy – The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia

The days of impossibly glamorous, hugely entertaining, and utterly without purpose ladies luncheons of days gone by have now been replaced these days by equally as social, very stylish, successful women who have philanthropy on their minds. I love covering these very relaxed, but fashionably minded events.

Last week at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia hosted their 13th Annual In Fashion with Baja East charity luncheon.

 Lunch was catered by Feastivities, and the table decor was simple in a farm to table style.
 

 Salad was placed in front of the guests, and another server gave the guest a choice of chicken or salmon from a serving dish. Very clever. Dessert a sorbet with a thin cookie. 
There was a live auction for two designer bags and a trip to NYC to see Baja East collection in February.  Plus a live bid, where the Philadelphia auctioneer Jeffrey Hammond explained how an additional money gift would help a child who’s parent was going through cancer treatment, or a program would benefit a family. 
 
Total raised from auction and live bid, over $10,000. Very nice.

 10 % of the sales from anything bought at Saks Fifth Avenue that day was also donated to the CSC

 Baja East is known for it’s loose luxury from surf to street 
For Spring, designers Scott Studenberg and John Targon
reimagined their signature urban nomad through the lens of rave, down
to the polished take on kandi seen at models’ wrists and necks.

The Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.  We provide a comprehensive professional program of social and emotional support and education designed to enhance the mind, body, and spirit of people whose lives have been affected by cancer.  All of our programs and services are provided at no cost to our participants (known as our members) so there’s never a barrier for anyone who needs cancer support.  No one should have to face cancer alone.
