Jahde Leather Atelier is excited to announce that the recent Desert Sunrise Benefit Fashion Show raised over $6,000 for Meeting Street Academy. The fundraising event was hosted in partnership with The Vault on King, Hampden Clothing, and several local creative enterprises.
“Meeting Street Academy is truly grateful to the Benefit Fashion Show for the generous support given to our arts programming,” says Dirk Bedford, Principal at MSA. “At Meeting Street, the importance of visual and performing arts as part of our holistic education can not be stated strongly enough. It is fitting that our emerging artists will benefit from the extremely skilled and talented artists and artisans who so generously played a role in the success of the show."
This charitable donation will directly support arts programming at the downtown Charleston school, a groundbreaking early education initiative founded upon the belief that all children deserve an excellent education regardless of their geographic or socioeconomic circumstances.
“A strong arts education is vital to the future of Charleston’s creative community,” says Andrea Jahde, Founder of Jahde Leather Atelier. “Thanks to the support of our partners and attendees, we are able to help MSA secure new arts equipment and enhanced programming so their students can continue to learn and grow through creativity.”
A check presentation will occur on Wednesday, November 28th from 3:45pm to 4:30pm at Meeting Street Academy, located at 642 Meeting Street in downtown Charleston. The presentation will include remarks from Principal Bedford and a dance performance by several students at the school.
All members of the media are invited to attend.
Additional contributing sponsors of the Benefit Runway Show include Christy & Co., Jonny Cosmetics, Dry Bar, The Aspen Agency, Hybrid Audio Solutions, Meeting Green, Samira Owens, Harold’s Cabin, and The Harbinger.
