Women Helping Women

6 May

Diptic-3 The Grace Centers of Hope in Pontiac, Mich. recently presented its annual luncheon and fashion show at the Royal Park Hotel. The auction items were as special as the fashions. The event raised funds for the remarkable programs that empower women and children. The Women’s Program has an emergency shelter, life skills and after-care initiatives. Ruth Spencer, local 4 News Anchor, was the master of ceremonies. Style and beauty expert Mary  Alice Stephenson of Glam4Good directed the fashion show which included bona fide models and women who have participated in Grace Centers of Hope programs.  Stephenson talked about the healing power of fashion. All the women looked ravishing in ball gowns from the trendiest designers. Renee Godin Agency provided the professional models.

Kudos to all the other people who helped put on a fabulous event.  Luigi Bruni Salon provided the hair and makeup, while English Gardens provided the centerpieces. Congratulations to Karen Bowman Williams on receiving the 2014 Angel of Grace Award. Testimonials described Karen as loving, caring and committed. A wonderful personal note is that Karen and Mary Alice grew up in Birmingham, Mich. and attended Seaholm High School together. The afternoon was extraordinary. Ruth Spencer noted that “The Grace Centers of Hope is a solution place.”

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.
    It will always be useful to read articles from other writers and use something
    from their sites.
