Spreading Wings

| February 27, 2015 | Parties

With 320 guests in attendance, the Childhelp Wings Fashion Show was every bit as glamorous as it was insightful. The 9th annual event was chaired by Betsy Coffeen and Carey Pauley while Zendaya of Disney Channel’s Shake It Up, K.C. Undercover, and Dancing with the Stars co-hosted the event with ABC 15’s Nick Ciletti.

It kicked off with Zendaya and Ciletti welcoming guests. The invocation was given by Childhelp’s Founding Mother Carol Hebets. In addition to the fashion show featuring designer fashions by Dillard’s, i boutique, TwirlyGirl, Peek Kids, and Scottsdale Men’s Shoppe, the live auction called by auctiontainer Leticia Frye, raised funds for the organization. Lunch with Zendaya brought the highest bids of the day totaling $6,800. Two of Childhelp’s youngest supporters, three and five-years old, put their hats in the ring bidding against each other for the “Birthday Party with Baxter” package. The three-year old had the winning bid of $4,600.
During the event, Childhelp honored Ivy and Joey Ciolli with the Childhelp Heart of an Angel Award. The Childhelp Heart of an Angel Award is given to an individual or individuals who commit to serving abused and neglected children through fundraising efforts and community activism.
More than $80,000 was raised to benefit the abused and at-risk children served by Childhelp. The success of the event proved unanimous.
