Kansas City, MO – 8/31/2016 – Just in time for fall, area businesses are collaborating to launch the inaugural “Fall into Fashion” fundraising luncheon and fashion show. Proceeds will benefit The Single Mom KC–a hospitality based organization on a mission to help, educate, mentor, clothe and empower single-mother families. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 25, 2017 from 11am to 1pm at BreakPointe Community Church in Overland Park, KS. Tickets and sponsorship packages are now on sale for an afternoon of fashion, food and philanthropy.

“The idea for Fall into Fashion 2016 sparked from the positive impact our specialty boutique, Clothed with Dignity, has had on the community. Now we’re inviting others for a fun and engaging way to partner with us and make a difference in the lives of single-mother families in our city,” said Single Mom KC founder and executive director Misty Honnold. At the boutique, single mothers shop for free in a supportive environment where they leave feeling more confident and prepared to take on the day to day challenges. “We have seen powerful transformations take place for the women we serve. Currently we serve about 50 single mothers per month during our open hours. Our goal is to expand the hours we are open and increase awareness of our boutique so that we can serve more women. We believe this fashion fundraising event will help us magnify our impact.”

Kim Byrnes, FOX4 news anchor, will be the event’s emcee. Fashion show attendees will also hear from mothers who have benefited from the services of Single Mom KC, along with local fashion experts to discuss fall trends for 2016. “I am thrilled to be able to help with Fall into Fashion 2016. It’s a great opportunity for people to come learn about the season’s latest styles while helping provide life-changing services to women and children in our community,” said Byrnes.
