The 7th year ‘Fashion Breathes Life’ event was a huge fundraising success for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Charlotte Chapter. Friday, April 1, 2022 event included local influencers walking the runway, beautiful clothing and emotional testimonials by those touched by cystic fibrosis, a disorder that typically affects the lungs, but also the pancreas, kidneys, liver and intestine.
The concept of ‘Fashion Breathes Life’ was to do just that, breathe life into efforts to find a cure for a disease that hits very close to home for Ben and Jill Pleune, whose son Oliver has CF. Jill and her sister Courtney Sloan, are owners of Sloan Boutique in Charlotte, and they know fashion. So using their expertise and that of their committee members, they created a fundraising event just seven years ago for CF Foundation.
This event has come a long way as we almost hit a goal of a half-million dollars. Using the runway to show trendy styles and our CF models that raised money for this cause, was a fabulous night of fun.
