The “Spring into Fashion” fundraiser is returning for its fifth year to benefit Prevail, Inc., a Noblesville nonprofit that aids victims of crime and abuse. The event will include a fashion show, shopping, a coin purse raffle by Saks Fifth Avenue, lunch, a runway show and a free charm from Smith’s Jewelers.
“It’s always great awareness for the community to see that we do have victims of violence in our neighborhoods and in our backyards that need assistance,” said Natasha Robinson, event and marketing coordinator for Prevail. “We have been serving the community for 30 years, and in that time people have helped us support over 37,000 victims. This is just one of the examples of an event that goes back to continue to make those services free of charge and raise awareness for our community.”
“We have an inspirational speaker who shares her story,” Robinson said. “She is a secondary victim, her child was in services here, and she is a parent of the victim.”
Robinson said that the luncheon is different than Prevail’s gala fundraiser that they hold each year. Woodland will provide the lunch and dessert.
“It’s a nice luncheon that is informal and shorter than the gala,” she said. “It’s just a fun ladies’ afternoon out. Tickets are on sale now, and the event normally has about 200 people. We filled up last year.”
