Couture for a Cause 2010
11/05/2010 - By Raleigh, NC

Couture for a Cause 2010

ME� (motivate, educate, empower, engage), a nonprofit promoting volunteerism in Wake County, NC, paired local designers with participating partner charities for this second annual Couture for a Cause fashion show fundraiser.

Designers created TWO outfits -- one ready-to-wear and one couture/art-to-wear -- that embodied the mission, brand, and overall "spirit" of their paired charitable cause. Two designer(s) whose outfits best matched their organizations according to a judge panel received a cash prize.

In its second year, Couture for a Cause included 350 audience members and participants. The event sold out, raising approximately $10,000 for ME�, whose programs work to connect volunteers to partnering nonprofits and inspire locals to get involved.
