On Aug. 17, Jodi Colombo of Beyond Ordinary LLC presented the check to Katherine Cooker, manager of development and community relations at the shelter, according to a news release.

The event was held at the Ramada Plaza and fashions were provided by a number of shops at Hagerstown Premium Outlets and Potomac Bridals.  

Jewelry was provided by Touchstone Crystal. Purses were provided by Bejoi, and makeup and hair design were provided by Rosebrooke Studio.  

Live music was provided by Maya and Todd Haines of Dogfoot, and the event DJ was Eric Piper. Local business management consultant and author Julie Gaver was on hand for book signing and donated the proceeds of $60 from the sale of her recent publication, “Must Love Shoes,” to the shelter.

Organizers thanked Ramada Plaza for hosting the event, Pieter Bickford of WHAG for emceeing the event and Angie Riford of Premium Outlets for coordinating various fashions.

Colombo said she is gearing up for the next event.

“This is going to be a really great fundraiser that we hope to make an annual event,” Colombo said. “So many businesses and models have contacted me to say that they want to be involved next year, which means we’re already off to a great start.”
