The second annual MODA Benefit Fashion for a Cure event, coordinated by the JDRF Young Leadership Committee, was held June 7 at the Ukrainian Institute of America. This year’s event featured selections from the 2012 evening wear collection of world-renowned designer Melinda Eng.
Produced in partnership with the Mishka Foundation and co-sponsored by North Shore-LIJ Health System and Yvonne Design Team, the evening included a runway show and an after party DJ’d by Jenn Blaze. Burberry Beauty provided the make-up team, and after the show guests received glamorizing touch-ups from the team for their own mini photo shoots with the event’s photographer, Brandon Sapp. With more than 150 guests in attendance, the event raised more than $5,200 for JDRF.
