Fashion luncheon to benefit Food Bank backpack program

Fashion Forward and the San Diego Food Bank have teamed up for a second annual luncheon and fashion show Thursday, Feb. 16 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine.

A silent auction will open the program at 10:30 a.m., the luncheon will start at noon, and the runway show produced by KUSI “Style Guy” Leonard Simpson, will follow at 1 p.m. The show will have a Tuscan theme and feature a range of designers, local celebrities, and models from New York and Los Angeles.

Roxi Link is co-chairing the event with Bonnie Hage, honorary chairs Joe and Lisa Busalacchi, and founding chair Sally B. Thornton to benefit Food Bank’s “Food 4 Kids Backpack Program” that provides weekend food packages to chronically hungry school children. There will also be a live auction.

“Guests will be whisked away to the dramatic landscape and rolling hills of Tuscany,” said Simpson. “We are going Italian chic, and the fashion show will be a veritable extravaganza.”

Look for fashions and jewelry from Sharon Plache of Clarise Designs, Celeste Boutique, Fairen Del, The Madison Suite, GSB Menswear, Mia Bella Couture, Hot Rock Jewelry, Bob Eix Jewelry, and Pamela Pogue Jewelry.

A food drive will also be held at the event.

Tickets are $100 for general admission and $150 for premium seating through Megan Mills at (858) 863-5121 or mmills@sandiegofoodbank.org
