Silk Threads Joins the Fight Against Child Abuse!!




Silk Threads Annual Fashion Extravaganza, themed Le Rêve Couture, will be held at the Trammell Crow Museum of Asian Art on Friday, October 5th at 7:00 p.m., and  is sure to bring together fusion,  fashion and art. This year’s annual fashion event and fundraiser will benefit the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County  - making a child’s hopes and dreams come true. Ruby Bhandari, CEO and Chief Designer of Silk Threads, promises this night to be a very special evening filled with many magical and exciting moments.

“No child should ever suffer the trauma of abuse or neglect and that’s why I am so passionate about working with the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County.  If I were not in fashion full time, I would devote myself to social work. This year the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County is our charity of choice and we are excited to support this cause and the needs of children in Collin County,” Bhandari says.

Bhandari reflects her Indian heritage and her Western sensibility in her designs. Vibrant colors, refined textures and intricate detail-work define the Silk Threads palette. Confident, elegant women and sophisticated men are her canvas. 
Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County’s VP of Development, Melanie Carroll, says, “We are so very excited for this opportunity to work with such a talented and prestigious designer.  Ruby and Silk Threads have become an incredible partner in the fight against child abuse and our ability to provide FREE services to all those in need.”

Ticket prices are $150 for individual and $250 for VIP tickets; they can be purchased at www.silkthreadsfundraiser.com.  For additional information on VIP tickets please contact Isabell Rossignol at (972) 814-9419.

 Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County is a non-profit organization that provides safety, healing and justice for children victimized by abuse and neglect. A multi-disciplinary team of 200 professionals work at the center to investigate, treat and prosecute Collin County child abuse.  Since opening, more than 40,000 children and their non-offending family members have received free services.
