On November 19th, Beachwood Place will host “Compassion from Fashion”, a special holiday event with all proceeds benefiting The Gathering Place, a supportive community for those touched by cancer. The event will run from 4-9pm and feature exclusive shopping discounts, along with a 7pm live fashion show featuring celebrity models as well as cancer survivors.
Among the celebrity models is Cleveland chef Ryan “Mickey” McLean, of ABC’s “The Bachelorette” fame. Mickey confirmed this on Twitter, tweeting to followers: “Please help me in supporting Compassion from Fashion. I will be there modeling clothes so come support a great cause.” McLean also won Cosmopolitan magazine’s “Bachelor of the Year” in 2010.
Tickets holders at the Beachwood event are also entitled to food and cash bars from 6-9pm, catered by Maggiano’s Little Italy, as well as a $10 Mall Gift Card and $10 towards dining at McCormick and Schmick’s.*.
