What: Legacy of Love Benefit & Fashion Show
Where: Mercedes-Benz of Plano
PC Moment: The sixth annual Legacy of Love Benefit & Fashion Show turned into a major success for the Children’s Medical Center Plano. The fun, fashion-focused event surpassed its fundraising goal, securing nearly $250,000 for the children’s hospital.
The Women’s Auxiliary to Children’s Medical Center Plano partnered with Mercedes-Benz of Plano and Neiman Marcus for this year’s benefit, which highlighted New York-based fashion designer Michelle Smith’s Milly Minis collection.
More than 300 guests came out to show their support for the Children’s Medical Center Plano, and enjoy great food and fashion.
The evening began with a selection of light bites from some of Legacy and Legacy West’s best restaurants, including Del Frisco’s Double Eagle, Steakhouse Haywire, Mr. Mesero, Seasons 52, Tommy Bahama, True Food Kitchen, RA Sushi, Shake Shack and Sugarfina.
The fashion show, which was directed by Planet Productions and Marjon Zabihi Henderson of Neiman Marcus, featured patients from Children’s Medical Center as adorable mini models. Sonia Azad and Chuck Steelman served as the show’s emcees, while a colorful selection of spring looks from Milly took the runway.
“If I’m going to travel and show my collection, to be able to tie it into a local cause and do some good locally is really important to me as a brand,” Smith told PaperCity at a Neiman Marcus store appearance earlier that day.
The evening wrapped up on a sweet note with dessert from Sprinkles and coffee from Starbucks Reserve.
The Women’s Auxiliary to Children’s Medical Center Plano has raised more than $1 million since 2010 in support of the mission to “make life better for children.”
Who: Lisa Raskin, Joa Muns, Tracy Tomson, Jean Callison, Joyce Logan, Diane Hopson, Dallas Stars defenseman Marc Methot, designer Michelle Smith, Chuck Steelman and Sonia Azad.
