The Medicine Gown Volunteers for a Good Deed charity event is November 3
As a medical volunteer, Chattanooga will be organizing the Robes pour bien charity on November 3 at the Chattanooga Mill. This inaugural lunch and fashion show fundraising experience aims to help raise essential funds for people who are medically underserved and in need of access to primary health care.
“The Dresses for Good benefit will include a lunch and interactive fashion show where attendees will have the opportunity to place bids live during the runway experience,” said event co-chair Rhonda Thurman.
All proceeds from the benefit will directly support the local charitable primary care clinic Volunteers in Medicine.
“The common goal of this first year benefit is not just to raise money, but also to have fun for such an important cause,” added Gowns for Good co-chair Lynda Minks Hood. “Another way to help and get involved is to donate a dress or dress that might otherwise be hanging in your closet. ”
The Dresses for Good Donation Criteria Form along with additional information is posted on the charity event website at www.VIM-chatt.org
Doors to the November 3 event will open at 11 a.m. with the ability for attendees to browse and purchase additional items at several local boutiques that will showcase other fashion selections and accessories such as handbags, shoes and jewelry, with part of the purchases benefiting the VIM. A selection of the dresses and donated dresses that will be available for purchasing offers at the event will be posted in advance for preview on VIM’s facebook.com/vimchatt and instagram.com/vim_chatt/ sites.
The Gowns for Good product supports the local charitable VIM clinic which helps uninsured people access health care. Since 2005, VIM has helped more than 75,000 patients get the treatment they need worth more than $ 25 million at clinical rates and $ 109 million at conservative emergency room rates.
