Runway for Charity

A.K. Rikk's, Design 1 Salon Spa, Aura Cosmetics, The Matthew Agency and our firm, Visbeen Architects, are bringing Grand Rapids the must see fashion show of the summer, called Runway for Charity.  

All proceeds from the event benefit the Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.  The last event in 2011 (formerly known as the Design 1 Fashion Event), had over 500 attendees and raised upwards of $25,000 for Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.  But they have upped the ante this year.  The goal is to raise $100,000, so the event is going to be bigger and better than all the previous years combined!  It will be held on Saturday, May 11 7:00pm - 10:30pm at A.K. Rikk's beautiful new location (6303 28th Street SE, Grand Rapids).  To purchase tickets to the event, please visit Helen DeVos Children's Hospital website.
