More than $21,000 "Fashionably" Raised for Lighthouse of Oakland County

Troy, MI -- More than 100 stylish guests previewed Saks Fifth Avenue's Spring Designer Collection on Tuesday, March 4 -- and all to benefit the Lighthouse of Oakland County Path program.  The Path program helps women move from crisis to self-sufficiency.  "We are so grateful for our committee, our sponsors and our donors," said Lighthouse Chief Development Officer Priscilla Perkins.  "From one event, we raised more than $21,000.  This goes along  way to helping our women in the Path program." 

Lighthouse PATH is a transformational program offering transitional housing for up to 65 homeless women and their children. At PATH, formerly homeless families live in a safe, nurturing environment for two years. During that time they are provided with essential programs and life skills training so they can begin to rebuild and transform their lives from poverty to self-sufficiency. Nearly 91% of PATH residents start their new life with full-time employment and permanent housing.

 "A Window to Spring Style" was made possible by Saks Fifth Avenue; Nicole Eisenberg; Kim Jackson of Hall & Hunter Realtors; Astrein's Fine Jewelry; David Parr of Edward James Financial; Susan Feiten and Betsy and Kevin Laboe.
