Fall into Fashion raises funds for local family

OKLA. CITY — Edmond residents who are eager to know what the latest fashions are and love to help out those in need will have the opportunity to do both at the end of the month.

“Fall into Fashion,” Spring Creek Plaza’s fifth annual charity fashion show, will take place beginning at 7 p.m. Oct. 25 in Spring Creek Plaza. The fashion show itself is free, and participants are invited to shop from 5-7 p.m. before the show, with proceeds from specified purchases going to benefit the Griffin and Logan Chill family.

Lending a hand in the fashion show are fashion marketing student from UCO. The students work hand in hand with the Spring Creek vendors, planning out every aspect of the show.

 Spring Creek Plaza managing partner Amanda Ward sees it as a way to make sure everyone has an opportunity to make a great thing even better.

“It has been so much fun working with the fashion marketing students,” Ward said. “We get to help them gain real-world experience in their field of study and they help us create an event that gives money to a wonderful cause.”

“(Ward) hires us, the fashion marketing program, every fall to help put on the Fall into Fashion,” explained junior UCO fashion marketing student Kristina Gavin.

Individuals planning to attend the show are advised to arrive early to be certain of a parking spot.

“From 5-7 p.m. it’s shopping. Most stores are going to have specials. And then we are going to have a tent set up,” Gavin said. “There’s not going to be a lot of parking. We’re going to have to have parking in the church parking lot.”

The students also have arranged for a raffle to go on at the same time as the fashion show.

“We are going to have a tent set up, and the runway is going to be in the tent with chairs around,” Gavin said. “Then we will have a separate tent for the raffle and donations. We have gift cards lined up and we are going to try to have cupcakes and coffee. It’s just going to be a fun night.”

Any funds donated that night will benefit the Chill family, whose two 22-month old sons were diagnosed with Alpers’ Syndrome.

“The Chill family is a family that had two twin boys,” Gavin said. “And they found out that one had a disease where his body rejects his liver and no transplant can help because even if they did the transplant, his body would just reject the liver.”

In addition to the fashion show, Cherry Berry in Northpark mall had a fundraiser, and Chik-fil-a at Edmond Crossing will present “Chicken with the Chills” beginning at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 18. A benefit golf tournament also will take place on Oct. 22 at the Greens Golf and Country Club in Oklahoma City.

“There’s other things going on,” Gavin said. “We’re just trying to help the family with medical bills and things like that.”

  • Stepping forward: The real Colbert

    Letterman changed the late-night TV game between his run on NBC's "Late Night" and starting the "Late Show" franchise in 1993. And while it's tough to replace a pop-culture icon, Colbert, in terms of pedigree and sense of humor, makes the most sense.
