Child & Family

Au Courant Event

On Friday July 14th 2017, Child & Family hosted its signature benefit event, Au Courant, at Fort Adams in Newport. Proceeds will be supporting programs that strengthen the fabric of families in Newport County and throughout Rhode Island, including the expansion of foster care services. We were honored to be there to capture every minute on video.

The night was anticipated and embraced by fashion professionals, enthusiasts, and the media alike. Child & Family collaborated with StyleWeek to organize Au Courant to celebrate and promote the extraordinary creative talents of the finest designers in the Northeast. The show provided a sneak peak of designer fashions that will officially debut later in the summer.

Guests enjoyed the experience and the energy of a major runway show while knowing that their generosity is supporting one of the oldest and largest social service providers in the state of RI. The funds raised at Au Courant help make a difference in the lives of children and families throughout the state.

Following the runway show, a designer sale that gave guests the exclusive opportunity to discuss fashion trends and purchase a one-of-a-kind fashion item directly from the featured designer.

Guests left knowing they have a beautiful and unique piece to add to their wardrobe, while benefiting Child & Family. The event continues to grow year by year, along with the number of funds raised.
