What: A Night of Fall Fashion is a fall style event and fundraiser for MOMentum, a movement aimed at installing outdoor adult fitness equipment in parks near playgrounds.

The event’s host is Pia Jacobsen—local stylist, former Nordstrom exec, and author of pia…me a book about developing personal style. "I’m thrilled to be a part of the Fall Night of Fashion because I admire MOMentum’s mission to give moms their own place to exercise in our local parks,” says Jacobsen. “I’m looking forward to sharing tips on how women can look fabulous this holiday season."

MOMentum cofounders Paige Green Dunn and Kelly Singer (of Sassy Fit) believe that "healthy moms raise healthy families." Their outdoor gyms offer "low impact cardio equipment and strengthening machines that focus on the areas moms care about most: arms, abs, hips and thighs." The well-placed gyms require no electricity—they’re powered by people.

In addition to live models wearing Jacobsen’s seasonal picks from the Bravern’s shops, Wild Ginger will serve appetizers and guests will have an opportunity to win raffle prizes from Velocity Art and Design, Calidora Skin Clinic, lululemon, and other area vendors.

When: Wednesday, October 26 from 7 to 10; tickets may be purchased for $50 through Brown Paper Tickets. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for $150, which includes a private pre-shopping party and champagne reception.
