Restoration Runway 2014: 5th Annual Fashion Show and Auction planned for March 27

By Leigh Marlow
Restoration Place Counseling (RPC) will host its 5th Annual Fashion Show and Auction on March 27, 2014 at the Greensboro Country Club from 6:00pm-9:00pm. Proceeds from the event will benefit Restoration Place Counseling, a non-profit organization that provides accessible, affordable counseling services to girls and women in the Triad suffering from issues such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders and the effects of past abuse.

The theme of this year’s event is Brave. Webster defines brave as “showing courage”, which is how we describe every woman who walks through the doors at RPC. To face the pain of one’s past and resolve to take the difficult steps toward healing, above all, takes courage. Every part of the event will represent the Brave theme—from a recent pre-event photo shoot with lions and tigers at the Conservators’ Center to client testimonial videos during the runway show to a grand finale choreographed to the highly popular tune by Sara Bareilles.

Women feel an enormous pressure to be beautiful and are aware of constant evaluations of their appearance. A key element of the event is to push back against the culture’s definition of beauty and to empower women to courageously embrace their own unique beauty.  The runway show will feature local women of all ages, shapes and ethnicity modeling the latest fashions and accessories from the following local retailers: Simply Meg’s, Fleet Plummer, Splurges Boutique, Lane Bryant, Uptown Cheapskate, The Contemporary Lady, and Cookie Lee Accessories by Lisa Yoakum.

The evening will begin with a reception of heavy hors d’oeuvres and silent auction—featuring BidPal's Cellular Bidding System—followed by the high-energy, first-class fashion show.

Tickets are $50.00 each.

Tickets may be purchased online at:
Or at Restoration Place Counseling: 1301 Carolina Street, Suite 114, Greensboro
