Silhouettes of Style - Luncheon & Fashion Show to benefit PACE
Mar '09
The Act Two Guild, the newest volunteer organization of Performing Arts Center Eastside (PACE), is organizing a fashion event this spring to benefit PACE. Silhouettes of Style – 2009 Luncheon & Fashion Show is scheduled for Friday, April 3, 2009 at The Westin Bellevue. Event guests will be treated to a full runway fashion show featuring the season's hottest new creations from the boutiques and shops of The Bellevue Collection, which is presenting and promoting Silhouettes of Style in association with Spring Runway09.

Recently formed, the Act Two Guild consists of over 30 women committed to raising community awareness and support for the future 2,000-seat Bellevue-based performing arts center, scheduled to open in 2012.

"The Fashion Show will feature collections from contemporary designers that capture the attention of women who like to wear the latest styles and shop the latest trends," says Kim Hardwick, co-chair for the event. "The Bellevue Collection's designer collections and their history of putting on entertaining fashion runway events will make this luncheon a one-of-a-kind experience." The other co-chair is Carol Loya, owner of the Truce Spa in The Westin Bellevue and also a Guild member.

According to Jennifer Leavitt, vice president/marketing for The Bellevue Collection, "Our Spring Runway09 (an annual event at The Bellevue Collection) will be held from March 26 to 29 in 2009, the weekend before the Act Two Guild event; it features smaller fashion shows, but no formal runway fundraising event. We are delighted to join with the Guild to add this new and stylish luncheon to Spring Runway09 to benefit PACE. It will not only be an exciting show, but will also raise funds for this important new cultural amenity coming to downtown Bellevue."

According to Act Two Guild President Theresa Goesling, "These women (members of the Guild) expect to work hard and are dedicated to the success of PACE. In addition to raising funds for PACE, our goal is to create a buzz of expectation around the union of fashion and theatre - which will add great energy to the cultural and shopping experience on the Eastside."

Officers for the Act Two Guild are, in addition to Goesling, who is from Bellevue; are Colleen Clancy-Eastman, vice president, from Clyde Hill; Debbie O'Brien, treasurer, from Bellevue; and Maureen Pace, secretary, from Clyde Hill.
