Fashion for Passion: Bat Mitzvah Manhattan Event to Benefit Orphans in Israel
After months of planning, on Sunday May 20, 2012 friends and classmates Naomi Citron and Noa Horvitz joined forces and blew the Manhattan fashion community away with their joint Bat Mitzvah Fashion Show Fundraiser held at Park East Synagogue in Manhattan.
Even up to the last few days before the event the young ladies continued to receive sponsors to help them with their event. So many amazing organizations got involved to donate their services, including food and raffle items, that the girls were able to raise over $5,000 entirely in profit of which 100% is going to benefit the Clothing Fund at the Children’s Home in Netanya!
Over 150 guests were in attendance where Naomi and Noa’s friends modeled clothing designs from Elie Tahari (who himself was raised in an Israeli orphanage), Boutique Volfe and Diva Kids. Guests participated in fashion sketching workshops and enjoyed raffles of designer jewelry from Jewelista, makeup and skin care products from Sisley-Paris, and Shimi 2 Zumba gift cards. Everyone munched on delicious food from My Most Favorite Food restaurant and Chocolate Works NYC, sponsored in part by ASG Real Estate.
The event was so inspiring and the girls brought so many people together that Jewelista was even inspired to donate 20% of proceeds from items bought on their website, http://www.jewelista.com/, to Lev LaLev! Just enter offer code Lev2012 at checkout (valid until December 2012) and Lev LaLev will receive 20% of the sale!
Our heartfelt thanks and Mazal Tov wishes go to the amazing Bat Mitzvah girls Naomi and Noa and their families!
