What: A stylish fundraiser for the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art and the Youth Hope Association.

Where: Tootsies.

The 411: Funds were raised through donations at the door and sales of the A Couture Cause 2014 calendar, a 13-month almanac featuring youthful style bloggers and fundraisers, photographed at local landmarks. A glam crowd of more than 200 packed the West Ave store where they sipped on cocktails from Capt. Foxheart's Bad News Bar & Spirit Lodge and grazed the appetizers provided by Pondicheri and SWEET. Lots of oggling of the trunk show of Ranjana Khan's jewelry. Photography for the calendar was donated by Rhonda Hunter with fashions provided by Tootsies and David Peck, who joined the party.

Who: The calendar subjects include Brooke Kamins Wise, Lauren Mills, Leigh Evans, Katy Atlas, Tamar Mendelssohn, Lyndsey Zorich and Trang and Chau Nguyen.
