A  brief   history…

               In October 2014, KARE held the first Dressed to KARE event. It was the brain child of the late Donna Hartley McKittrick, the Executive Director at the time. She loved KARE’s resale store and dreamed of a fashion show to highlight the fashion available at such affordable prices. We recruited volunteers as models, gathered table and event sponsors, put together a silent auction and an event was had. It was great fun and we grew the event holding it annually until 2017. We took 2018 and 2019 off to reimagine the event and re-focus our fundraising efforts, and then COVID caused further challenges. We now intend to focus on two signature events…a Golf Tournament in August and Dressed to KARE in May. The new Dressed to KARE continues to showcase our store in the Fashion Show portion of the event. It also now feature a high-quality tea party portion, as well as entertainment. Another new element to the event is the opportunity for our sponsors to participate, wearing company logoed apparel, and they’ll have a moment to speak on stage to promote their business if they desire. It’s not required, but is a great opportunity for advertising in front of a captive audience. We’re excited to bring back this popular event and even more excited to give it some new life. The menu is based off the traditional English tea menu items – complete with sweet and savory items such as cucumber sandwiches, scones, truffles and more. We will continue to have a silent auction with a feminine focus, concentrating on spa items, art, jewelry and more.

In 2020, COVID threw a wrench in our event planning and we opted to go virtual instead of cancelling.
 
Below is the resulting video and we're thrilled to have something lasting to share with all of you!
