There is almost nothing I love more then when great food, fashion and community come together! The 1st Annual SafeHouse Fashion Show Luncheon was held at Melvyn's Restaurant here in town yesterday! Located at the Ingleside Inn, a small boutique hotel in the heart of Palm Springs, Melvyn's Restaurant makes for a romantic yet upbeat dining experience with hints of old hollywood glamour! The goal of the fashion luncheon was to raise awareness and funds for The SafeHouse of the Desert, a local program dedicated to the safety and well-being of youth in crisis. The SafeHouse of the Desert provides services ranging from emergency shelter, to counseling and substance abuse assistance. Their goal is to not only provide relief but most importantly help instill a sense of hope, hope that things can and will get better. I found out about this event and the SafeHouse of the Desert through the POP Shop.
The POP Shop, which stands for previously owned products, is a thrift store in the desert whose proceeds go to benefiting the SafeHouse, how amazing is that!! The SafeHouse can only function with community support and that is exactly what the POP Shop and this luncheon was all about! The POP Shop had a stand outside of the luncheon where people could learn about the store, donate, or purchase items! If you've never been, I highly recommend heading over to the POP Shop, located at 551 Industrial Pl, and checking out their goods and maybe even donating some of your own previously owned products! If you are interested in finding out more about the SafeHouse or donating you can do so here and here, and if you'd like to check out more on the POP Shop head on over to their facebook page here! xo sarah
