Jeffrey Fashion Cares Atlanta 25th Anniversary Fashion Show and Auction

We invite you to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Jeffrey Fashion Cares! Many thanks to our past supporters and welcome to those who are new to this event. As you may know, the funds raised by Jeffrey Fashion Cares benefit the Atlanta AIDS Fund, which funds HIV/AIDS projects in the metropolitan area, and Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta which provides grants to grassroots organizations fighting breast cancer. With your support and generosity, we are confident that we can meet our fundraising goal for this significant anniversary event.

We are proud of the fundraising results of Jeffrey Fashion Cares and how it compares to other events on Atlanta’s philanthropic calendar. Because we work so hard to have a small ‘overhead’ for such a grand event—last year, just under $0.90 of every dollar went directly to the charities—funded through the generosity of people like you!

We are expecting this year’s Jeffrey Fashion Cares to be the most successful ever. We would love to have your participation. You can expect new and exciting announcements to follow, as we have some great things in the works! If you have never been able to attend the event, to get a glimpse–come on in…

Thank you and we hope that you will be a part of this year’s fabulous event! for more information go to http://jeffreyfashioncares.com/event

 Neil,

I want to thank you for your ongoing support of Ian’s Friends Foundation! It was such an honor to have you join us Saturday night. I am ecstatic to report that our event raised over $900,000 for pediatric brain tumor research! It is because of YOU that we are able to make a difference.  On behalf of all of the children battling brain tumors, thank you for your time! Your support is critical in sponsoring the research so desperately needed to find a cure for pediatric brain tumors.

We hope to work with you again in the future. With gratitude,

JFS

Just wanted to tell you how impressed Pamela and I were with your work at the JFS Annual Dinner.  You really were responsible for making the auctions a financial success … and at the same time, made it fun for the participants & onlookers. 

Any way … didn’t want to let the weekend pass w/o letting you know you really helped make the evening a success.  I estimated you took in almost $200,000 during the Live Auction … and I know there was a good deal of activity on the timed auction items, as well.  See you soon ! ~ bob
