Fave Five: Jeffrey Fashion Cares

(c) Ben Rose
There are many reasons to love Jeffrey Fashion Cares, Atlanta's premier philanthropic event, and I could go on and on listing them. But I'll spare you hours of rambling love confessions and only share my top five with you, to leave you with plenty of time to get your tickets before Monday's event. 

Fundraising + fashion: 
Not only is JFC a top philanthropic event in the city, raising money for the Atlanta AIDS Fund and Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, but it infuses the latest fashion trends into the entire process. If you're a fashion lover, this even is perfect for you, from the silent auction to the runway show to the after-party. 

Incredible auction items: 
During the live auction, you can bid on once-in-a-lifetime experiences like a trip to New York Fashion Week or track time in a luxury super car (Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, etc.).

New location:
This year's event will take place at Phipps Plaza. Don't worry -- you won't feel like you're in a mall (albeit, a luxury one). The event space will be fully transformed specifically for JFC and you'll be able to mingle, bid and sip in style. 

Celeb sightings: 
Speaking of mingling... you just might find yourself rubbing elbows with some A-lister! Last year alone, I watched "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman strut the red carpet with then-fiance Josh Murray, chatted with The Bert Show Host Kristin Klingshirn, and snapped a selfie with Chilli from TLC!


The runway show! 
Saving the best for last! Carefully curated by Jeffrey Kalinsky of Jeffrey Atlanta, the fashion show is the piece de resistance of the evening. We're talking the latest styles from Chanel, Lanvin, Proenza Schouler, Givenchy, Rodarte, and so many others. I can't wait to see this year's lineup!
