This fashion show fundraiser, which will bring more awareness to CRC for ED and its mission and services, will be held on May 31.

BeYOUtiful will feature fashion by VaVaVooom, NEST Boutique, Minx Boutique, Hazel Twenty, and Mine and Yours Asheville Resale. Guests will enjoy a dj, cash bar, raffle prizes, and community. “This is not your typical fashion show, it is a fun and empowering event and all bodies are welcome,” says VanGilder. Additionally, event organizers are excited to announce that public figure, model, actress, and fashionista Sarah Merrell, will be emceeing the show.
