Blazin’ Babes hosted their third annual Neiman Marcus Fashion show entitled, Denim & Determination on Thursday, October 5, 2017. Members and their besties sipped wine and enjoyed passed hors d’oeuvres while they rocked their denim and networked with one another in the beautiful Zodiac Room at Neiman Marcus, Northbrook. Prior to the fashion show which featured tunes from DJ Famos of Famos DJ Entertainment, guests heard from and were inspired by Laura Zumdahl, CEO of New Moms, a non-profit in Chicago that helps break the cycle of poverty for single moms in poverty by providing housing and employment. Guests then heard from Christine Coyle, Director of Client Partnerships for The Mom Project, a digital talent marketplace that connects professional women with world-class companies. Both speakers talked about the importance of never giving up regardless of who you are, where you are from, the challenges you have had to face as a woman and the obstacles that we, as women have had to overcome. They spoke of resilience, motherhood and the power of women banding together to support one another. Guests donated business shoes and accessories to New Moms as part of their ticket entrance and left the event with a Neiman Marcus swag bag full on Trish MvEvoy goodies plus special promotions from Sparkl, Classic Kids Photography and Shred415. Thank you to all who came out and supported this great cause!
