NorthEast Foundation Announces Models for 38th Annual Foundation Fashion Night on October 23
New Vote2Give Component Added to Raise Additional Dollars for CHS NorthEast
CONCORD, N.C. (October 17, 2018) — NorthEast Foundation is excited to announce its models for the 38th Annual Foundation Fashion Night (FFN). There are 67 members of our community and hospital, Carolinas HealthCare System (CHS) NorthEast, modeling clothing from 12 different stores and boutiques. The sold-out event, which is less than a week away on October 23, will be held at the City Club at Gibson Mill.
“Foundation Fashion Night is a signature event for our community and the NorthEast Foudation as we raise money for our hospital,” said Charlie Sastoque, NorthEast Foundation President. “The support we have received from our teammates at the hospital and civic leaders to particpate in the event has been unbelievable. We sold out the event for the second year in a row, and it says a lot about how much everyone supports our hospital and believes in providing great care in our community.”
NorthEast Foundation is rolling out a new component to this year’s event – Vote2Give. Each of the major service areas at CHS NorthEast will be partnered with a boutique/store along with the models who will be showcasing their outfits. Those in attendance, as well as those who are unable to attend, can help raise additional dollars for 12 service areas by voting for their favorite area of the hospital, store or model.
Voting has already started at FFN.givesmart.com. The platform makes it easy for supporters to register and each vote is only $1, however, voters can choose any dollar amount.
For example, $50 = 50 votes!
