Local charities benefit from Fashion Victims Ball

You may have seen the rather humorous images from the 2008 Fashion Victims Ball in December. The event was co-sponsored by Keller Williams Realty and WWAY. Today was the day to hand over the proceeds to six local charities. They split more than $3,500. The charities helped were the Community Boys and Girls Club, breast cancer awareness, Carolina Canines, Project Linus, Ronald McDonald House, and Habitat for Humanity. "It means a lot. It is not just the gift, it's these kinds of things - having people know what we do and know about the generosity of our community and all the challenges we have out there. But Wilmington is a really generous community and this is just an example of that," said Habitat for Humanity’s Kitty Yerkes. If you would like to know more about the 2009 Fashion Victims Ball you can call the organizers at 910-442-1700.
