She succeeded beyond her wildest expectations!
I’ll let Kate speak for herself. Here’s what she wrote to me (I’m posting it here with her permission):
“The show went absolutely amazingly!! It was a smash hit, and it was totally sold out with standing room only!! We raised approximately $8,175.15. That’s three thousand over our goal!! YAY!! I arrived along with models, hair stylists, and makeup artists at 9 a.m. to begin hair and makeup. It was a crazy but amazing experience. I was running around backstage, cueing models, cueing our emcee. It was AWESOME!! I totally loved the atmosphere and have started looking into doing it annually!!”
How cool is THAT? SRO and a whopping sum for charity! Kate, my hat is off to you — you are an inspiring example of someone who didn’t just dream big, but was willing to roll up her sleeves and work hard to turn that dream into a reality.
Here are some fun links you can visit to hear from Kate herself, see photos of the event, and get the inside scoop from a few of the designers who showcased their work:
