Vintage On View Raises Over $16,000 For Children’s Hospital

Friday, April 25, 2014

Fashion items from days long gone made a comeback to support Children’s Hospital at Erlanger during Vintage on View this month.  The event raised over $16,000 to benefit pediatric patients in the Chattanooga region. 

During Vintage on View at the Walden Club, guests enjoyed teas, coffee, wine, and appetizers as they viewed decorations by Mike Lees and local models displaying clothing from the 1920’s through the 1960’s.  Live music was performed by Robert Crabtree, and fashion items such as clothing, jewelry, and decorative items from private collections as well as vintage retailers were also available for purchase.

  Prizes were awarded to ladies for the best vintage dressed. 

“Vintage on View was one of the most unusual, most fun events I have had the pleasure of co-chairing,” said The Purple Lady (Sonia Young).  “We had great people to work with, wonderful food, music, and decor and fabulous fashions - a unique, one-of-a-kind event that was successful as well as memorable and all for a fantastic cause.  This perfect combination does not happen often enough.” 

Erlanger Health System Foundations would like to thank co-chairs of the event, Sonia Young and Debby Alper, for their support and dedication to making this event possible and to sponsors:  Spears Moore Rebman and Williams, Henderson Hutcherson & McCullough, AM Investment Strategies, Collective Clothing, Epiphany Salon and Day Spa, Mike Lees Designs, First Tennessee Foundation, The Walden Club, Republic Parking and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.
