The Schaeffer Eye Center’s Fashions for the Foundation 2015 was held Nov. 9 at the newly opened Grand Bohemian Hotel Mountain Brook.
More than 300 guests gathered in the elegant Grand Ballroom to see models sporting clothing and accessories from 16 local merchants and eyewear from Schaeffer Eye Center. l.a. Eyeworks designer Gai Gherardi was in attendance.
Stylebriefs.com’s Caroline Gidiere and Martha Thompson served as emcees for the show, sharing interesting facts about each of the models and their outfits. Local models included Sara Evans, Dr. Dicky Barlow, Mike Thompson and many other members of the Mountain Brook Schools community. Hair and makeup services were donated by Tonya Jones Salon.
Proceeds from the show of about $25,000 will directly benefit the Mountain Brook City Schools Foundation as it works to mobilize community support and resources for the academic enhancement of the school system. Funds raised become part of a permanent endowment.
Since its founding in 1992, the foundation has awarded more than $5.9 million to the school system, helping every student, school and teacher, every year.
