WWIN PARTNERS WITH ST. JUDE’S RANCH FOR CHILDREN. A "CLARION CARES" INITIATIVE
Shelton, CT (July 24, 2023) – Womenswear in Nevada (WWIN), the leading destination for sourcing women's apparel operated by Clarion Events, proudly announces its partnership with St. Jude’s Ranch for Children during the upcoming WWIN August event. This partnership coincides with the launch of Clarion Events' corporate charitable initiative, "Clarion Cares," which aims to support local charities aligned with the mission of each event within Clarion's portfolios.
The goal of Clarion Cares is to give back to the communities that host their live events by fostering an environment of care, respect, service, compassion, diversity, inclusion and sustainability. WWIN has chosen St. Jude’s Ranch for Children as their partner for the upcoming event, continuing their commitment to making a positive impact on the local Las Vegas community.
St. Jude’s Ranch for Children, a charitable organization dedicated to transforming the lives of abused and at-risk children, young adults and families, has been providing therapeutic residential treatment services to thousands of children in Nevada for over 50 years. Their mission to empower children and young adults to create new choices and new hope in a caring community aligns perfectly with Clarion Cares' core values.
WWIN is encouraging exhibitors to donate apparel and accessories to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children's group homes and onsite thrift store. All proceeds from the thrift store benefit the many children who live on their campus, in addition to supporting the Ranch's philanthropic initiatives, making a meaningful difference in the lives of those it supports.
"As a leader in the fashion industry, we recognize the significance of sustainability, and this partnership allows us to play our part in promoting responsible practices. By upcycling samples and apparel through this initiative, we aim to reduce waste and contribute to a more sustainable future for fashion," states Melissa K. Montes, Vice President of WWIN.
Montes further emphasized the potential impact of every WWIN exhibitor's donation, saying, "If every WWIN exhibitor donated just one clothing/accessory item, our donation would be quite generous. We look forward to our community coming together to support St. Jude's Ranch for Children and create a positive change in the lives of those in need."
Exhibitors can bring apparel and accessories donations to collection bins in the WWIN show management office, located in the Imperial Boardroom just beyond the registration area. Donations will be accepted from August 6 – 10 and after the show concludes on Thursday, St. Jude's Ranch for Children will collect all donated items.
WWIN August will be returning for one last time to its summer venue, Caesars Palace Hotel in Las Vegas, from August 7-10, 2023. This four-day event provides buyers and retailers with a unique opportunity to source women's apparel and accessories while enjoying exceptional hospitality, networking opportunities, educational workshops, trend tours, and top-notch concierge services.
