Fashion meets philanthropy at CYP's benefit

Fashion and philanthropy will be the main attraction at the Columbus Young Professionals' A Date 2 Remember benefit.

This Saturday, Feb. 22, the group is putting on a fashion show/live auction at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion from 7:30 to 11 p.m. CYP has created special Columbus-centric packages for attendees to bid on as models walk the stage in local styles. Those packages are grouped by activity and include live athletic events, outdoor activities and VIP experiences. They'll range in price from a few hundred dollars to thousands.

A cocktail hour will precede the event, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Proceeds will go to A Kid Again, Capital Kids, CD102.5 for the Kids, CMH Fashion Week, and YP360, a new CYP organization focused on developing local leaders.

Tickets are $35 in advance and $45 at the door. Get yours here.
