For the second time in its 17-year history, the New Albany Women's Network annual fashion show was sold out.

For the second time in its 17-year history, the New Albany Women's Network annual fashion show was sold out.

NAWN President Tenielle Comerford said 250 people attended the Charity Brunch and Bubbly Fashion Show on Nov. 12 at Jefferson Country Club.

The event included fashions from 10 Columbus-area boutiques and benefitted Court Appointed Special Advocates of Franklin County.

In Franklin County nearly 3,000 abused and neglected children are put into foster care each year, CASA Executive Director Kathy Kerr said.

Volunteers meet with children to make sure they're being cared for. Providing children with at least one person they see until they're placed in a safe home is vital, Kerr said.

"It's a very, very important program," Kerr said.

Comerford said NAWN reviews applications annually to support local charities and chooses a different one each year for its fashion show. The group focuses on supporting women and children and the local community.

"CASA Franklin fit that perfectly," she said.

Comerford said the fashion show gives NAWN's 350 members the opportunity to dress up and come together to celebrate for a great cause.

"I couldn't ask for a better Saturday," she said.
