Bellevue Fashion Week Raised Over $100,000 For Local Charity!

Seattle Children’s Hospital and Bellevue LifeSpring Benefit from Bellevue Fashion Runway Shows.

The Bellevue Collection and the Kemper Freeman family raised over $100,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital and Bellevue LifeSpring during its 10th annual Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection’s fall fashion runway shows.  100% of the ticket sales of the two events went directly to these non-profit beneficiaries.  Posh Party Trend Show held Friday, Sept. 25th, generated $45,225 for Bellevue LifeSpring and the signature event of the week held on Saturday, Sept. 26th, Front Row Fashion Runway Show Presented by Vogue, raised $57,300 for Seattle Children’s.  Both shows were held at The HyattRegency Bellevue to sold-out crowds.

Aileen Kelly, Vice President of Seattle Children’s Hospital and Research Foundation, spoke about how the funds raised at The Bellevue Collection’s Front Row Fashion show will benefit children in our community.  “The Bellevue Collection’s generous support of Seattle Children’s allows our researchers to bring their promising discoveries to patients and helps us give all children a chance for a better, healthier future,” says Kelly.

Posh Party Trend Show hosted by distinguished designer, stylist and editor, Rachel Zoe, was an unparalleled night of fashion, beauty and philanthropy.  “Every year this event gets better,” said Jennifer Fischer, executive director of beneficiary, Bellevue LifeSpring.  “We are so grateful to The Kemper Freeman family and The Bellevue Collection for their ongoing generosity and commitment to Bellevue LifeSpring.  The money raised tonight will provide 45,225 meals to hungry children living in poverty in our community.  For those voices that so often go unheard, we thank you.”

“Each year we strive to produce the best shows possible to support the beneficiaries that play such a critical role in our community and beyond,” says Jennifer Leavitt, vice president of marketing, The Bellevue Collection.  “The addition of Rachel Zoe as the host of Posh Party made it a very special night for everyone and contributed to selling out the show for Bellevue LifeSpring.  Topping off this week was the highly anticipated Front Row Fashion Runway Show Presented by Vogue, which helped to raise funds for the important work of Seattle Children’s.  The funds raised at these two events go to two outstanding beneficiaries and we are proud to be able to continue our philanthropic culture of giving back to our community.”
