CABVI hosted the 6th Annual Designer Draw on November 7th at Aqua Vino Restaurant in Utica. Inspired by women, organized by women, to benefit women and children – CABVI Couture is a premier fashion event in our area.  Approximately 150 women showed their support, raising over $12,000 for women’s services at the new Vision Rehabilitation and Wellness Center.

“Women’s and children’s programming is so important,” said Kathy Beaver, VP of Rehabilitation Services. “We need fun and engaging events like the Designer Draw to bring awareness to these types of programs while providing a comfortable atmosphere for everyone, men and women alike, to network and win some great items.”

Gina Healey was the winner of the grand prize Luis Vuitton NeoNoe purse and CABVI’s own Laura Yakey, Orientation and Mobility Specialist, was the winner of the second grand prize $500 Turning Stone gift certificate.

In addition, to be entered to win the grand prizes, the women were able to enter a draw for purses by designers such as Coach, Kate Spade, Dooney & Bourke, and Nine West.

CABVI thanks Anne D’Amico for chairing the event and the planning committee for the countless hours and efforts they put into the event.
