WHERE: Neiman Marcus in Bellevue

WHAT: Look good and feel good this summer as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Neiman Marcus at the Bravern host a fashion show and shopping fundraiser.

Hosted by The Bachelor’s Desiree Hartsock, the Glamour and Giving event will feature a summer runway show, private shopping (Neiman is shutting down for the occasion), a high-end auction, and most importantly a special tribute to local families who’ve utilized St. Jude’s lifesaving services.

The Tennessee-based nonprofit is almost entirely funded through public support and events like these. Money goes to finance cutting-edge research for children’s cancer research and to pay for treatment of individual patients. No family ever pays anything to St. Jude. Not for treatment, not for travel expenses, not for housing or food.

Saving kids. Shopping. A private evening at Neiman Marcus. Yeah, we can get behind all of that.

We’re gifting a pair of free general admission tickets to the summer soiree (a $200 value). Want to take part? Send me an email at [email protected] with the subject “Glamour and Giving for St. Jude” by May 31. I’ll randomly select a winner and be in touch by June 1. The winning tickets will be available at will call, and I’ll stop by to say hello (and thank you!) in person at the event.

WHEN: Doors open at 5:30 on Thursday, June 4. Tickets, which include light bites and cocktails, are $100 for general admission and $150 for VIPs. All proceeds and funds raised during the event benefit St. Jude’s mission of finding cures and saving the lives of children.
