Café Caturra is located at 600 Ledgeston Way in the Stone Creek Village Shopping Center. The featured fashion show event will begin promptly at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25, and include a donation to Anna’s Angels, two glasses of boutique wine, appetizers and desserts and the fashion show. And, Scout and Molly’s of Cary will offer 25% off all merchandise in the store (excluding sale items, previous purchases and jewelry). The store will be open during the entire event. There will also be a raffle for two free tickets on Southwest Airlines, and a silent auction.

“We are so thrilled to hold our second Anna’s Angels fashion show to raise funds for Down syndome research”, said organization founder Michelle Pfeiffer. “Our first fashion show was a huge hit, and many people attending asked that we hold another one, soon. It’s a great night in every aspect because you’ll have lots of fun, see the latest fashions while enjoying food and drink, and you’re supporting a wonderful cause.”  Pfeiffer and her husband Andrew Merrills started Anna’s Angels in 2003 in the name of their daughter, Anna, who was born with Down syndrome.  Money raised at the event will be used locally to support laboratory and clinical research regarding Down syndrome at Duke Children’s Hospital. Anna’s Angels has raised $950,000 for the Duke program, to-date.

In addition to partnering with Café Caturra and Scout and Molly’s, Anna’s Angels is working with J&F Gemelli to provide hair and makeup services, DJ Dave Severance will provide musical entertainment during the event, and Sylvia Benson, will hold a Jewelry Trunk Show. Benson is also offering a free gift with purchase of any Sylvia Benson Jewelry item. Marketing assistance for the event is being provided by queue, an area marketing and advertising agency.

Tickets for the Fashion Show may be purchased at Café Caturra the night of the event. For more information about Anna’s Angels Foundation or the Fashion Show, visit www.annas-angels.org or call 919-604-3350.
