Now there’s fashion that looks good, and then there’s fashion that does good. With that said, you are hereby cordially instructed to gather all of your fashiony friends to come out and shop and support a fabulous fashion fundraiser benefitting Simply Grace House.
Simply Grace House, is a positive, organized and safe residential community for those facing the challenges of recovery, providing a safe, supportive and structured living environment. Sober for more than 16 years after a long battle with alcohol and drug addiction, Anika Cooper founded Simply Grace as part of her desire to begin a new life and stay free of alcohol and drugs. Simply Grace helps recovering addicts get on their feet and acquire the skills and emotional support they need to integrate back into society and begin a fresh start. Anika remembers the experiences, opportunities and lessons that changed her life while she was in transitional housing, and Simply Grace is her way of giving back.
The venue, Uptown Consignment Fine Apparel, is calling in the big guns–featuring amazing, brand-name couture at low prices. Located in the heart of Uptown Dallas, Uptown Consignment is like having access to the closet of your BFF, with heaps of designer clothes, shoes and handbags.

Product ranges in price from $12 all the way to $30,000, so there is definitely something there to meet every budget. Connie will provide savory hors d’oeurves from her upcoming cookbook.
