On September 14th, 2018, Hope’s Door New Beginning will be hosting their Fall Fashion Show and Luncheon. Ticket prices start at $150, and all proceeds will benefit Hope’s Door New Beginning, a nonprofit which works to offer intervention and prevention services for families affected by domestic abuse.

The fashion show will feature fall fashion from womenswear provider Tootsies, and clothes will be modeled by the wives and girlfriends of the Dallas Stars, the Junior League of Collin County, and even a few surprise guests!

Statistics indicate that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men in Texas will experience violence at the hands of their family, and Hope’s Door works tirelessly to ensure that these statistics change. In 2017, Hope’s Door volunteers answered 5,854 calls to their emergency hotline, which is answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in English and Spanish. Last year, the nonprofit also had 470 adults and children in residence at their emergency shelters, and they assisted 150 individuals through their transitional housing program. They provided counseling for 1,496 adults and 908 children.
