What is the Jack and Jill Fashion Show Fundraiser?
Each year, two local charities are awarded the proceeds generated from the event ticket sales. This year’s recipients were Leading Edge Institute and Grace House. Much preparation went into bringing a wonderful morning of elegant fashion, food, and fun to the Jack and Jill mothers and their guests.
The Jack and Jill special event committee members Karla Fields, Bonika Wilson, Ty Davis, Terri Gardner, Vickie Ausmer, and Michelle Nalls worked closely with Belk at The Summit Store Manager Susan Held, Belk Special Events Coordinator Katie Jones, and Fashion Stylist Melissa Melvin to make the event truly special.
A special highlight of the morning was the Jack and Jill teen models that walked the runway with the professional models. Malik Kofi was the featured musical guest, and Chef Julia May provided an elegant continental breakfast.
Now, without further ado, here are some fabulous fashion highlights from the Annual Jack and Jill of America Birmingham Chapter Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser at Belk the Summit! Enjoy!
