High style hits the Townsend

chair Andrea Beavers of Farmington Hills


Bold colors, oversized bags and sexy stilettos made the runway sizzle inside
Birmingham's Townsend Hotel — melting away thoughts of the snovvy,
slush-filled streAkputside. About 150 fashionable women braved a winter
storm Feb. 1 to attend Tender at the Townsend, an annual brunch, upscale
fashion show (courtesy of Birmingham boutique Tender) and raffle to raise
money for ORT America.
"The fashion show was spectacular, and we had a remarkable turnout
considering the weather," said Susan August of Bloomfield Hills, who
co-chaired the event with Andrea Beavers of Farmington Hills. "I think
it speaks to the dedication of the women in our community. They're truly
philanthropists." The crowd raised 5150,000 for the organization, which
supports a global network of schools and training programs in 56 countries.
"We're so grateful for everyone's generosity and their willingness to brave
the snow," August added. "They're providing for children who would oth-
erwise go without."
