The first ever Women of Style & Substance fashion fundraiser was held at Hedge Gallery in San Francisco, recently.
Drawing on the legendary drive and entrepreneurial spirit of San Francisco, WCG’s Women of Style & Substance event brought local Bay Area advocates and leaders together to shop for a cause and raise awareness of important issues regarding women’s reproductive health. The fashion fundraiser successfully raised $70,000.
Proceeds from the fashion fundraiser benefited WomanCare Global, which is a charity that improves the lives of women by providing access to affordable, quality family planning products.
Guests shopped a curated selection of fashion products from a collective of California—based designers, ranging from Newbark’s signature slippers to Juan Carlos Obando’s jewel-tone, silk gowns. While the fashion market space was the main attraction during the event, a raffle was conducted, featuring generous donations from Restoration Hardware, Serena & Lily, a product basket from Frederic Fekkai, as well as a two-night stay at Auberge du Soleil and a private twilight tasting and tour at Opus One winery.
