Flourish: A Fashion Show & Benefit for WomenGive
Wednesday, July 7th, 2021 at Rove in Fort Collins, Colorado
Flourish is a modern and contemporary Annual Fundraiser Fashion Show for WomenGive of Larimer County that took place on Wednesday, July 7th, 2021 at Rove in Fort Collins, Colorado. The event featured runway segments by Colorado based designers both up and coming, and established, as well as local Fort Collins boutiques! Food and drinks were provided by local food truck favorites and distilleries CopperMuse and Spring 44. The event also featured our favorite beautiful hostess, Mindy Bryant of Edge Optics and Hive Theory, and a substantial silent auction featuring products from local restaurants, boutiques, and artists as well as several high profile autographed items.
The goal of Flourish is to raise funds for local non-profit, WomenGive. WomenGive is a local non-profit that offers support and childcare scholarships to single mothers pursuing further education. To learn more about WomenGive please visit their website! https://uwaylc.org/WomenGive
