KTVZ News21 - November 1, 2018 — Making its debut as one of Bend’s hottest new charitable events, Giving In Style held its first annual fashion show and fundraiser on Oct. 12 at Tetherow Resort. With nearly 200 attendees filling the pavilion and nearly 30 local notables strutting the runway for a great cause, Giving In Style delivered an exciting evening of fun, fashion and philanthropy, all benefiting Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend.
“My family has been involved with Boys & Girls Clubs for as long as I can remember. In every city, the Clubs offer a safe place and activities for at-risk kids to feel a sense of belonging and a path for personal development. I’m incredibly excited about this opportunity to work with BGCB and create a unique event that gives back to the community,” said Giving In Style co-chair, Andra von Behren.
Amanda Gow, Executive Director of Boys & Girls Clubs of Bend said, “We are incredibly proud to be the exclusive beneficiary of the inaugural Giving In Style event! This year, we surpassed our fundraising goal and had a fabulous and fashion forward evening where we got to share the mission and vision of Boys & Girls Clubs with our community while raising much needed funds for our scholarship program.”
