Sixth Annual “style with a cause” Empowers and Inspires Women While Raising Funds to Benefit Court Appointed Special Advocates
More than 200 fashion-forward guests filled The Gramercy Residences for the sixth annual style with a cause (SWAC) benefiting the Court Appointed Special Advocate’s (CASA) programs that help identify and fund the individual needs of abused and neglected children in foster care in Clark County.
The evening kicked off with a cocktail reception featuring tasty bites provided by Pinches Tacos, DW Bistro, Kitchen Table Squared, and cocktails by Tito’s Handmade Vodka. During the reception, guests enjoyed interactive activations, including organization classes hosted by Melanie Walker and the Neat Method team, dry stylings by Vent Blotique, a temporary tattoo parlor, psychic and spiritual readings provided by Dallisa Hocking and her spiritual tribe of Spirit & Spark, and an art wall where guests were invited to write down what empowers them.
Host and SWAC Founder Jenna Doughton welcomed everyone as they took their seats for a fashion show featuring the latest fall trends presented by Saks Fifth Avenue. Attendees also followed the journey of this year’s beauty transformation recipient, Verise Campbell from CASA, as footage was shown of her makeover. Her final look was then unveiled as she walked down the runway revealing the transformation provided by Tadashi, Kelly Cardenas Salon, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Kendra Scott.
To continue the empowerment of the evening, three local unsung “sheroes” were then surprised as they were honored for their outstanding commitment to bettering the community.
“Every year style with a cause gets bigger, and it is all thanks to our wonderful community,” said Doughton. “One day I hope style with a cause becomes a global vision that will uplift and empower women everywhere.”
