LAS VEGAS – Opportunity Village volunteer group, OV Angels, have partnered with Zappos for Good, stylist Tiffany Weekes and Las Vegas jeweler MJ Christensen Diamonds to put on Fall into Fashion on Saturday, September 7, to benefit the Madi Peck Endowment Fund.
The Madi Peck Endowment Fund will help provide specialty equipment for Opportunity Village’s PRIDE program, which serves the organization’s most disabled individuals.
The event, which is open to the public, starts at 11:30 am. Fall into Fashion is a fashion show, boutique, and lunch event. OV clients will rock the runway escorted by special local volunteers, and guests will raise their paddles to make their donations. Guests will also get to enjoy light bites, view spectacular artworks from the Fine Arts Program at Opportunity Village and mingle with several in vogue fashion vendors from across the Las Vegas Valley.
Fall Into Fashion will take place at Opportunity Village’s Ralph & Betty Engelstad Campus, located at 6050 S. Buffalo Drive.
All client attire has been provided by Zappos for Good and personally selected by stylist Tiffany Weekes of Consciously Chic. Additionally, jewelry from MJ Christensen will be paired with each outfit. Opportunity Village clients, thanks to the generosity of Zappos for Good, will be able to keep their outfits following the fashion show.
Fall into Fashion tickets can be purchased for $50 per person online or $350 for a table of 8 online, and food and beverages are included in ticket prices. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Madi Peck Endowment Fund, supporting Opportunity Village’s PRIDE program. For complete event details, check out the Facebook Event Page.
PRIDE stands for “People’s Rights to Independence, Dignity and Equality,” serving individuals with very profound physical and intellectual disabilities who require 24-hour care and supervision. In addition to providing respite care for families, clients in the PRIDE program enjoy regular outings in the community and receive assistive technology training along with auditory and visual stimulation to help them communicate. There is a full-time nursing staff on-site to support the various health needs of PRIDE participants. Additional information about the program can be found here.
