Phoenix Fashion Week in its sixth year is once again gaining national acclaim for bringing charitable endeavors to the runway. For the third year, the organization is partnering up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Phoenix, the local chapter of the national foundation to help raise cancer awareness. Born out of a promise between sisters, the Susan G. Komen Foundation has become the largest network of people with the common goal of fighting to end breast cancer over the last 26 years. With over 100,000 survivors and activists and even more supporters, the foundation is constantly finding more ways to voice their mission and create awareness for the cause.
At 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 7, over 30 designers will open Phoenix Fashion Week with Be Fashionably Pink, a celebrity fashion show at the W Scottsdale benefiting Susan G. Komen for the Cure Phoenix.
Phoenix Fashion Week has also created silent auction event in an effort to raise money for the foundation. Throughout the evening attendees will be able to bid for select items generously donated by participating designers, artists and sponsors. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Susan G Komen Foundation. Guest will also have a chance to donate directly to the foundation the night of the event.
