Can we talk?
Fashion and style are near and dear to my heart.
You’ve probably figured that out by now. But something has changed over the past few years…
As I’ve grown older and have added the very important role of “Mom” to my resume, my focus has definitely shifted a bit. While fashion and style still inspire, nothing — and I mean NOTHING — is more important to me than the well-being of my kids and family. I know there are thousands of moms (and dads) out there who feel the exact same way. I also know that there are thousands of parents who are not as fortunate as I am and who struggle daily to keep their family safe, warm and well fed.
When the HUNGER NETWORK OF GREATER CLEVELAND reached out to me about partnering on a post and helping them get the word out about the amazing work they do, I couldn’t help but jump at the chance to help those less fortunate.
If you’re not familiar with this amazing organization, here’s a little background:
The HUNGER NETWORK OF GREATER CLEVELAND was founded to purchase food and administer programs that feed and link the hungry to other vital services such as healthcare. The Hunger Network operates with only eight full-time paid staff and distributes 94% of every $1 donated directly to buying food. They put food directly into the hands of those most in need…serving 45,000 people monthly, 31% of which are children.
They cannot do this without funding and our help.
ALL ABOUT THE BAG is the Hunger Network’s 5th Annual Fashion Benefit taking place on Feb 28th at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights, OH. It’s a fun evening of relating fashion to food (bags of FOOD — get it?!) through runway presentations, auctions and designer giveaways — hello, CHANEL BAG RAFFLE! The funds raised at ALL ABOUT THE BAG will be critical in enabling the Hunger Network to complete its very important mission to feed our local Cleveland hungry.
So what can you do to help?!
Well, if you’re local to the NE Ohio/Greater Cleveland area, why don’t you go ahead an enter my giveaway. I’ll be giving one lucky winner and his/her guest 2 tickets to this year’s event! As a Bag Ambassador, I’ll be attending and looking forward to joining you for a cocktail! Tickets are valued at $75 each and you’ll have the perfect opportunity to get all gussied up and mix and mingle with over 500 of Cleveland’s most fashionable as we work to break our goal of raising over $100,000.
Not too shabby, right?!

For all of my non-Cleveland friends, please consider participating in the CHANEL BAG RAFFLE (winner does not need to be present to win) or making a SMALL ONLINE DONATION. Just $5, fills a bag of food to help an entire family in need. Cleveland is making headlines. But, no one boasts about our claim to the second highest childhood poverty rate in the country.
Help us to make a difference.
