Bridgette Raes Fashion Project Melanoma Research Foundation

Please join me on September 19th at Elie Tahari’s 5th Avenue NYC store for a shopping party event with a cause!

I am thrilled to be partnering with Fashion Project and Elie Tahari on this amazing event to benefit a charity that is very close to my heart, The Melanoma Research Foundation.

On October 27, 1997, when I was just 23, my life was forever changed when I lost my 46 year old father to the devastation of Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer.  Since then, I have become an advocate for skin cancer awareness and prevention.  On September 19th, I am inviting you to not only get great deals from Elie Tahari, one of my favorite labels, but to do it while supporting the Melanoma Research Foundation.


Here is how the evening will work and what you will need to do to attend:

Partnering with the folks over at Fashion Project, a company that has put a charitable spin on designer resale, join us at the Tahari store with a minimum of one clothing item for donation.   This is important because your ticket of entry will be this donation item!!    All  donated items will be sold on Fashion Project’s website shortly after the event, and a portion of all proceeds will go directly to the Melanoma Research Foundation.  Everybody wins!  You can give you closet a purge, get a 25% discount off Tahari’s newest fall arrivals, and the Melanoma Research benefits from the sales from your clothing donation made that the evening!

 Who is Invited?

Everybody is invited!!  All you have to do is RSVP to join us at Tahari from 5-8pm with your clothing donation(s) in hand to get in on and evening of fun and 25% sale on all new arrivals.

RSVP by emailing or call 212-763-2544!

Please share this invitation with your friends, family and anyone else you think might want to come!  It’s going to be a great night!  And, of course, I will be there looking forward to meeting you!
