The Origins of Fabulous
Fashion and Friends

Glenda Haugen of My Best Friend's Closet was kind enough to share the amazing origin story of this important event in our community.

Glenda's daughter Meredith Haugen, also co-owner of My Best Friend's Closet, was a volunteer at the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center before her death in 2007. There were various memorials in her memory which were used to build the Meredith Haugen Play Therapy Room at the Rape and Abuse Crisis Center. 

After her death, friends began to meet on Meredith's birthday in 2008 and gave donations to improve the therapy room. After this, Glenda and friends began talking with RACC and offered to partner to assist them in funding training and equipment updates for the room. 

The yearly gathering on Meredith's birthday turned into an annual fashion show and fundraiser for the room and RACC in general--Fabulous Fashion and Friends. 

This year is the 5th year of the event and they have sold out tickets each year so far! We hope to continue this tradition. Besides the fashion show the event also includes the sale of new jewelry, a silent auction and a raffle.
