JDRF Catwalk 7

Stamford, CTMarch 7, 2017

JDRF’s Catwalk, “an Afternoon of Fashion, Food and Friends for a Cure”, is the official beginning of spring for the fashion crowd.  On March 7, over 220 guests gathered at the Loading Dock in Stamford for Catwalk 7.  The fashion show featured Darien Sport Shop’s hottest looks as models walked the runway.  The event, chaired by Anastasia Brien of Greenwich and Jen Fitzpatrick of Darien, is a fundraiser for JDRF to fund type 1 diabetes research.  The 7th annual event, was a success due to the efforts of a committee, including Nancy Berger, Susan Campion, Lisa and Rob Carpenter, Geri Corrigan, Carol Ann Coughlin, Jennifer D’Errico, Karen Hauben, Liz Kenny, Debbie Nelson, Anne-Marie Queally, Bridget Queally, Theresa Stagg, Suzanne Turner, Astrid Weismann and Natalie Wiegenfeld.  The signature “IT BAG” raffle raised $24,500 as 21 designer bags were displayed and a Grand Prize raffle from D’Errico Jewelry of Scarsdale, raised over $4,500! Guests shopped the Darien Sport Shop pop up shop then left with goodie bags with items from Shiseido, Zotos, Zen Bronze, Lanphier, Rodan + Fields, and more. Thanks to its generous supporters, Catwalk exceeded its goal, raising nearly $110,000!  We look forward to Catwalk 8 in 2018!
