Dec. 4: Fashion show, fair in downtown Menlo Park

 

The business community in Menlo Park will come together for a fashion show and fair benefiting the Lambadina Foundation on Sunday, Dec. 4, at the Stephen Miller Gallery on Santa Cruz Avenue. The fair opens at 4 p.m. The fashion show starts at 6 p.m.

The foundation was formed by Showa Sahle, owner of La Migliore Aveda Salon on Santa Cruz Avenue in response to human trafficking in Eritrea, Africa, her country of origin.

She is also working to raise $50,000 to build a shelter for displaced Eritrean women. A donation of $25 will help build the shelter, which needs 2,000 bricks.

Several local businesses will display their wares at the fashion show and fair. Local restaurants will provide refreshments, led by Carpaccio, whose part-owner, Ciya Martorana, plays an active role in the Lambadina Foundation.

Tickets are $30 each and may be purchased online at lambadinafoundation.org.
