The NorthEast Foundation’s 38th Annual Foundation Fashion Night was a huge success thanks to our community!  Our over 650 guests in attendance helped us raise enough money to present a check to CHS NorthEast President Phyllis Wingate for over $91,000 for our hospital.

The event was held on Oct. 23, 2018 at the City Club at Gibson Mill. It featured apparel from 12 different stores and boutiques being modeled by 67 community and hospital volunteers.  Hosts Beth Troutman and Hade E. Robinson, Jr. bantered about the models, the fashions, the stores and CHS NorthEast keeping those in attendance entertained throughout the night.

Prior to the event, was the second year of a “Taste of Cabarrus.”  Eight restaurants and three beverages companies prepared food and drink for the guests with everything from a carving station and kabobs, eggplant rollatini and pork sliders, to Oreo pie shooters and coconut macaroons.  Guests could enjoy their food with donated beer, wine, bourbon, coffee, tea and water!

Attendees had the unique opportunity to Vote2Give this year via their phones.  There were 12 teams comprised of one store, its models for the event and a service line the Foundation supports within the hospital guests could vote for leading up to the event and that night.  A total of $7,000 was raised through Vote2Give with Team Cardiac Services leading the charge.

The event has now raised over $3 million since it began 38 years ago to provide funding for innovative programs, specialized equipment and additional needs for CHS NorthEast to fulfill its mission to improve Health, elevation Hope and advance Healing for all.

NorthEast Foundation’s 38th Annual Foundation Fashion Night will be held Tuesday, Oct. 23 at the City Club at Gibson Mill. The signature event benefiting Carolinas HealthCare System NorthEast raises funds to support innovative technology, special programs and critically needed projects for distinct areas of our hospital. The event also brings together members of the community and hospital showcasing the latest style trends from local boutiques and shops, as well as a “Taste of Cabarrus” with over 10 restaurants preparing signature appetizers and desserts from around the county.

This year’s community co-chairs, Ashelea and Reid Chaney, Nicole and Will Lisk and Sarah and Brent Mullis, MD, are working hard with Foundation staff to make this year’s event the biggest Fashion Night yet. New stores, restaurants and sponsors are being added to the event along with long-time supporters of the Foundation to raise funds for our award-winning healthcare facilities.

“The NorthEast Foundation Fashion Night is truly an event the whole community can get behind,” said co-chair Nicole Lisk. “Models this year live in Concord, Harrisburg, Kannapolis and Salisbury. Some work for the hospital, some volunteer and some are first-time supporters of the event. Models of all ages will be participating, with the youngest being 5 years old. The same can be said for the restaurants and sponsors, who come from all surrounding areas of the community. It will truly be an evening to remember as we come together for one common goal!”

Back for a second year to co-host the evening is Cabarrus County native and Emmy-Award winning journalist Beth Troutman, and Carolina Style Guy and Nordstrom Styling Sales Manager Hade Robinson. The dynamic duo brought smiles and laughter to over 600 guests in 2017 as they bantered about fashion, their love of this community and even personal experiences with CHS NorthEast.

As of today, 12 stores from the area will be participating in the fashion show. Returning from last year are 3 jem’s boutique, Adair Style Studio, Hampton’s Men’s Clothing, Neta’s Childrens & Ladies, Nordstrom SouthPark and Pretty Please Boutique. New to this year’s lineup are Cabarrus Country Club Golf Pro Shop, Hope’s Bridal Boutique, JCPenney Concord, Love You Back Boutique, Lovely Lines Boutique and Virginia’s. The stores and boutiques represent some of the finest locally-owned shops in the county from Concord, Kannapolis, Harrisburg, Locust and Salisbury.

Now in its second year, guests will enjoy a “Taste of Cabarrus” leading up to the runway show with restaurants, bakeries and beverage companies serving delicious bites and drinks. Signature hors d’oeuvres will be prepared and served by 2 Gals Kitchen, Afton Tavern, Cabarrus Arena & Events Center, Gianni’s Trattoria, Local 25, Restaurant Forty Six and The Smoke Pit. Guests with a sweet tooth will enjoy desserts from Dough New York Style Bakery and The Sweet Life. Supporters of the Foundation, Cabarrus Brewing Company, will once again be serving up its cold brew to guests in attendance. New this year will be bourbon tastings from Southern Grace Distilleries out of Mount Pleasant and freshly brewed coffee from S&D Coffee & Tea.
