At Winds of Change, looking good for charity

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2008 at 5:32 AM

Question: How does one relieve their guilt about horrible tragedies, like earthquakes in China and the sprawling AIDS crisis in Malawi? With a fashion show, of course. On May 24th at 7:30 pm, Winds of Change, a clothing boutique in Chagrin Falls, will showcase its jungle-inspired spring and summer collections from designers like Fortune Denim, Lori Leavitt, and Martha Rey. Keeping with the African theme, guests can pick at African-inspired delicacies like steamed bananas and curried chicken catered by The Bertram Inn. To help wash it all down, waiters will be handing out champagne and wine... The store is also auctioning off shopping sprees, massages, gift certificates, and a trip to New York City for the Fall Fashion Week, with all proceeds benefiting the Malawi H.E.L.P Foundation. From 5:30-6:30 p.m., VIP ticket holders will be allowed first viewing of the new collection, and receive 20 percent off their total. VIP tickets are $75 each, or two for $120. Regular admission is $20. – Rebecca Meiser
