Fashion Week at The Bellevue Collection Raises $105,000 for Local Nonprofits

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Over the weekend, The Bellevue Collection celebrated its 18th year of Fashion Week and raised $38,000 for KidsQuest Children's Museum and $67,000 Treehouse. The high-energy runway shows were curated from local and national retailers at The Bellevue Collection, tailor-made for the Pacific Northwest. 

"The best part about Fashion Week is the combination of guests seeing the newest looks on the runway and finding their own personal style, which makes fashion fun," said Jennifer Leavitt, vice president of marketing for The Bellevue Collection. "Giving back to our region and community is at the foundation of Fashion Week, and over the past 18 years, we've raised more than $1.5 million for local nonprofits, thanks to the Kemper Freeman family, owner of The Bellevue Collection, and generous guests who attend the shows."

The Trend Takeover Runway Show raised money for KidsQuest Children's Museum, which offers playful, STEAM-based, hands-on learning opportunities that help young minds thrive. Funding will support KidsQuest's Community Access Initiative, which aims to remove the barriers many families face in accessing critical out-of-school playful learning opportunities. This includes scholarships for those needing financial assistance to participate in Museum classes and programs, as well as dedicated low sensory times and resources for neurodiverse children and their families. 

The Collective Runway Show supported beneficiary Treehouse, which provides programs for youth in foster care that help meet basic needs, offer support for academic success and aid in the transition to adult independence. The money raised will help provide school year essentials such as backpacks, new clothes, art supplies and gear for extracurricular activities along with educational coaching and advocacy to help keep kids in school and graduate.
