Annual Event Celebrates 40 Years Supporting Atrium Health Cabarrus Through Fashion and Philanthropy
CONCORD, N.C. (Oct. 15, 2020) – Cabarrus Healthcare Foundation is excited to announce its participating stores and models for the 40th Annual Foundation Fashion Night supporting Atrium Health Cabarrus. The event, being held virtually this year, will showcase 31 community and hospital models wearing outfits from 10 stores and boutiques. The runway shows, hosted this year by Hade E. Robinson, Jr. and Dakeita Vanderburg, will be available on the Cabarrus Healthcare Foundation’s Facebook beginning Oct. 19.
“The Atrium Health Cabarrus mission statement reads: ‘To Improve Health, Elevate Hope and Advance Healing – for all.’ We are all here for the one common goal of supporting our hospital. We are thankful for the people – physicians, nurses, administrators, hospital staff and everyone else who makes this hospital great. Every day they are striving to do their best for all. The recent health crisis has shined a light on the importance of readily available healthcare along with staffing and access to additional resources. Our virtual Foundation Fashion Night will once again lead the charge to raise additional dollars for our COVID-19 Response Fund and our 10 areas of support,” said Co-Chair Couples, Katie and Drew Anson, Chad and Lauren Flack and Drs. Mark and Katherine Van Poppel.
Foundation Fashion Night was started by the Cabarrus Memorial Hospital Auxiliary in 1981 at All Saints Episcopal Church. The fashion show has evolved from a runway at churches and the School of Nursing Auditorium, to The City Club at Gibson Mill with lights, technology and over 600 guests in attendance. The historic community event has raised over $3 million for our hospital to provide care to our friends, family and neighbors.
