Covenant Care’s Art of Fashion

There’s no better way to inspire a love of fashion while helping an important cause than at Covenant Care’s 18th annual Art of Fashion. This year’s soirée is a Parisian Escape and promises to be full of fun and flair, according to Christie Saffold, executive director of Nonie’s Place and senior director of development for Covenant Care.

It’s set to take place April 4 in downtown Pensacola at the Museum Plaza grounds, and all the haute people will be there to revel in the evening’s delights.

“The event is really a huge party with a purpose,” Saffold said. “Last year, we had just over 1,200 guests in attendance. This year, guests can anticipate being swept away to Paris with the Parisian Escape theme.”

Mais oui!

One of the best parts of the event is the très chic people who will be walking the runway.

“We have 60 local celebrity models,” Saffold said, which are all nominated by committee.

The models get to show off fashions from multiple local boutiques.

Presented by the Ice Flyers this year, Art of Fashion is Covenant Care’s biggest event.

“All proceeds benefit three amazing Covenant Care programs: hospice Charity Care, My Wish and Nonie’s Place,” Saffold explained. “My Wish grants wishes for seriously ill individuals, patients and families and bereaved children. Nonie’s Place offers free clinical counseling to children and teens experiencing grief and loss.”

And of course, hospice care is the heart of what they do.

“Covenant Care has been providing hospice care in Pensacola for over 40 years. Art of Fashion is one of the ways we are able to provide charity hospice care to patients who are unfunded or underfunded,” she said.
