Childhelp Wings Fashion Show & Luncheon exceeds fundraising expectations at Chateau Luxe

Childhelp remains vital lifeline for children in need throughout Arizona
Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

Childhelp hosted its annual Childhelp Wings Fashion Show & Luncheon on Sunday, April 21, at Chateau Luxe.

From its origins as a mother-daughter initiative, under the leadership of Founding Mother Carol Hebets, Childhelp Wings has evolved into a unifying force bringing together volunteers and youth organizations throughout the community.

Together, their mission is to drive impactful service projects and fundraisers in support of Childhelp Arizona’s vital programs and services, representatives of the philanthropic endeavor tell the Digital Free Press.

Guided by event chairs, Ivy Ciolli, Brooklyn Ciolli, Monique Hampton, and Harper Hampton, this year’s event surpassed expectations with 400 supporters in attendance and participation from more than 60 child models and local celebrities donning the latest fashion trends from Basically Bows & Bowties, Garage Boutique, Apricot Lane Boutique, and Carter’s Men’s Clothing.

“Childhelp’s mission has always been near and dear to my heart,” said Carol Hebets in a prepared statement. “The Childhelp Wings Fashion Show is an opportunity to increase awareness of the child abuse epidemic, while raising resources critical to treatment and prevention.”

Under the vibrant theme of ‘Pinwheels For a Purpose,’ this year’s event showcased colorful children’s fashion along with blue pinwheels, the national symbol for child abuse prevention since 2008.

Guests enjoyed a dazzling array of attractions, including a celebrity-studded runway, live and silent auctions, enticing raffle prizes, entertainment, and the chance to bid on one of the 146 pinwheels in Chandler’s “Field of Hope,” honoring the 146 lives lost to child abuse in Arizona in 2022.

Generosity poured in with spontaneous raffle items and donations that exceeded all expectations, including the raffling of every “Field of Hope” pinwheel at $100 each—a touching tribute and highlight of the family-friendly event. Rounding out all of the day’s festivities, Childhelp was proud to announce local celebrity Singer Rosevelt Rawls as the recipient of this year’s Heart of an Angel Award for her devotion to Childhelp.

It is estimated that five children die each day from abuse and neglect in the United States, and, for 65 years, Childhelp has worked to combat this epidemic, with a focus on meeting the physical, emotional, educational and spiritual needs of children.

Through its lifesaving programs and services, Childhelp has served over 12 million children nationwide.
