Fashions for a Purpose to host 8th Annual Fashion Event on October 8 to increase awareness of domestic violence

NIPOMO—Fashions for a Purpose, a Nipomo-based nonprofit focused on raising awareness about domestic violence is hosting their 8th Annual Fashion Event at Solid Rock Ranch in Nipomo on October 8.

Fashions for a Purpose (FFAP) is focused on raising awareness about domestic violence through engagement, education and empowerment. FFAP was founded in 2015 by Kimberley Victor, an overcomer of domestic violence, who was moved to action after one of her Mary Kay consultants was murdered in a domestic violence altercation. Every year in October, FFAP hosts a fashion show event featuring powerful guest speakers that promotes awareness about domestic violence, a silent online auction, generously filled swag bags, plus many other surprises. All proceeds raised are donated to DV organizations such as the Mary Kay Foundation and Lumina Alliance in SLO County. To date, this grass roots nonprofit has raised over $100,000.

Fashions for a Purpose partners with the Mary Kay Foundation, a 501(c)(3), to provide substantial grants each year to domestic violence shelters and programs. These programs provide direct education to victims, including recognizing and understanding the various signs of physical, mental, and emotional abuse. It is critical that victims have access to these programs which help them recover, heal, and teach them how to have safe, healthy relationships. This year, FFAP has a goal of raising $22,500 for their 2022 fashion event. Sponsorships, direct donations for their online silent auction, and fashion show attendance are their main ways of fundraising. Through their website and social media, their message has the potential to reach people coast-to-coast.
