Bellevue, Washington (PRWEB) October 03, 2012
Kemper Development Company’s dazzling Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection runway shows raised more than $62,000 for The Moyer Foundation and Bellevue LifeSpring. Posh Party Beauty and Trend Show, held Friday, Sept. 28th, raised some $10,000 for Bellevue LifeSpring and the signature event of the week held on Saturday, Sept. 29th, Front Row Fashion presented by Vogue, raised more than $52,000 for The Moyer Foundation. Both shows were underwritten by Kemper Development Company so that 100% of the all ticket sales would benefit the two non-profit organizations.
Karen Moyer, co-founder of The Moyer Foundation, opened the show to welcome the crowd and introduce Vogue’s own Anne Vincent. “This is the third year in a row that this exciting fashion event has been the centerpiece of a major fund raising event for our Foundation,” says Moyer. “The Moyer Foundation is grateful to Kemper Freeman, Kemper Development Company’s Bellevue Collection and Vogue, and is honored to partake in such an amazing fashion show. Together we are making a difference in the lives of children in distress.”
“Kemper Development has supported Bellevue LifeSpring (formerly Overlake Service League) for decades,” say Trish Carpenter, Board Chair, Bellevue LifeSpring. “We could not be more grateful for their ongoing efforts on our behalf to help us bring these vital services to our Eastside community.”
“This year’s Bellevue Fashion Week events were even more spectacular than in years’ past,” says Jennifer Leavitt, vice president of Marketing, Kemper Development Company. “Posh Party, our girls’ night out event, proved to be very entertaining and what I’d call ‘fashion educational’ featuring hands-on beauty tips and spot-on advice from Bruce Pflaumer of PStyle Image and Consulting for how to wear this year’s trends with your body type, which is always a hit. Terri Morgan of TCM Models and Talent wrapped the night up with a high energy trend show of Bellevue Collection fashions. The Front Row Fashion Show was just stunning this year. Nowhere else in the Puget Sound will you get to see the pages of Vogue come to life on the runway like they did with Anne Vincent sharing the magazine’s trend point of view.
