Fashion week benefits Baptist Hospital

ORANGE — The Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas La Soirée committee is making plans for Fashion Week 2013.  

The week kicks off on Friday, January 18 with highlights including VIP Night and Fashion Fleet.  Fashion Week culminates with “La Soirée - Texas On the Ritz,” a black tie gala to be held at the Beaumont Civic Center on Saturday, January 26.

Shoppers will purchase VIP tickets for $75 or Fashion Fleet tickets for $25 and will begin their shopping excursion at The Grill.

VIP ticket holders will shop in style as they are taken to participating retailers in limousines and will also receive a swag bag filled with goodies.  Fashion Fleet participants will board buses provided by Acadian and will receive a special Fashion Week shopping bag.  Retailers will offer major discounts and specials, along with refreshments.  At the end of the night, door prizes will be given and shoppers can rest their feet at The Grill as they listen to entertainment provided by Katie Whitney and The Draw.

The event will be in Orange from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 22 for those in this area who wish to join the shopping adventure. The stores participating are The Pink Chandelier, A Little Bit Gaudy and Fluer de Chic. Shoppers will receive discounts at the locations during the shopping excursion.

The end of the week concludes with La Soirée.  Chairmen for the area’s most fashionable event, Scott and Tammy Crutchfield, along with Co-chairmen Dr. Mark and Aileen Larson, are hard at work planning the event that is sure to keep guests entertained with surprises planned throughout the evening. The festivities will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail reception and a fabulous silent auction that will feature a variety of items.

Tracy Byrd is making a special appearance and will kick off the event followed by a high-end fashion extravaganza with models that will strut the runway and show off the latest trends from local retailers for the upcoming season.  Following the fashion show, the Motion Band from Dallas will have guests up on their feet and singing along.

Funds raised from Fashion Week will support Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas Foundation.  Money raised at previous Fashion Week events has helped fund the breast health expansion at the Charline & Sidney “Chief” Dauphin Cancer Screening & Prevention Center, assisted with a makeover of the Julie & Ben Rogers Cancer Institute and helped establish a family room on the Oncology Unit at Baptist Hospitals.  

Tickets and table sponsorships for the event are available by calling 409.212.6110.  Tickets are $175 each and table sponsorships range from $2,500 to $50,000.
