Italian Food & Fashion Meet Philanthropy at the 57th Annual ISDA Celebrity Spring Luncheon

By: Rachel Vadaj, ISDA Editor

Where can you go to experience Italian food, fashion and local celebrities? The 57th Annual ISDA Celebrity Spring Fashion Show and Luncheon!

On April 28 at the Wyndham Grand Hotel in Pittsburg, you can feast your eyes on the latest looks modeled by our models on the glimmering runway.

Global women’s fashion brand Joseph Ribcoff will be featured on the runway along with Heinz Healey, Bruce Berk’s Menswear, One Brilliant, Chloe Adornments, Chico’s, and two upcoming designers.

Some of our celebrity models that will show you their coolest catwalk include KDKA’s Paul Martino and Kym Gable, as well as Allegheny County Sheriff Bill Mullen.

Your taste buds will also be in for a treat with our Famous Italian Bake Sale. From fudge to your favorite Italian classics, the wall-to-wall dessert selection is delicious and delightful (it’s famous for a reason).

You can also bring the fashion and food home with you with products from a multitude of vendors, including Chloe Adornaments, Rodan + Fields, Fudgery, and Chloe & Issabelle Jewelry.

The fun doesn’t stop with food and fashion…

Attendees can also participate in an auction and try their luck while helping a notable cause with the 50/50 raffle.

The fashion show won’t be the only performance you’ll see: the nationally recognized Live Artist Cody Sabol will captivate you with his speed painting skills.

All of the activities at this event benefits 600 special children and caretakers by providing a trip to Kennywood!
