BELLEVUE, Wash., Oct. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- For the past 14 years, the Kemper Freeman family and The Bellevue Collection host the annual Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection to bring the community together through fashion and fundraising, donating more than $1 million from all ticketed events. And 2019 was no different with Posh Party Trend Show and The Collective Runway Show raising more than $110,000 for two deserving local non-profit organizations, Ben's Fund and Bellevue LifeSpring.
Posh Party Trend Show raised $45,000 for Bellevue LifeSpring, one of the longest-running, non-profits in Bellevue and an organization dedicated to helping improve the lives of local children and families. Bellevue LifeSpring will utilize the funds to provide food, clothes and educational opportunities to its recipients. The Collective Runway Show raised $66,000 for Ben's Fund whose mission is to provide support to children and young adults with autism. Through the distribution of grants, Washington families receive financial assistance and guidance, thus easing some of the financial strain associated with autism.
"Fashion Week is our opportunity to showcase fall trends now available at The Bellevue Collection through our captivating runway shows, all while giving back to our community," said VP of Marketing for The Bellevue Collection, Jennifer Leavitt. "It's always been the hallmark of our culture at Kemper Development Company to give back to the community that we have been so fortunate to do business in for the last seven decades."
Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection brings together hundreds of the Pacific Northwest's most fashion-forward individuals each year for a look at the hottest fall trends. The Bellevue Collection is one of the most sought-after destinations in the region for trendy must-have looks, interactive styling sessions, beauty tips and much more.
