PARCA Auxiliary Luncheon and Fashion Show 2023 – May 17, 2023

The PARCA Auxiliary’s annual Luncheon and Fashion Show event raised an incredible number of critical funds for the nonprofit PARCA Organization (Partners and Advocates for Remarkable Children and Adults), now at $5M+ over the years. All of the proceeds from the event went directly towards the PARCA Organization, which offers programs and services that benefit developmentally disabled individuals and their families in the Bay Area and is doing life-changing work daily. Highlights from the day included PARCA Client guest speaker and performer, Donald Nunes; a stunning fashion show of Dorothee Schumacher’s Fall 2023 collection and a Summer edit of mens and womens ready-to-wear from the most coveted designers around the world presented by Sam Malouf Authentic Luxury; gourmet lunch by Charlie Parker Provisions; a live auction featuring one-of-a-kind packages for every taste; and PARCA CEO, Diana Conti, sharing her newly announced vision and campaign “Dare to Dream” which was the inspiration for this year’s event theme: “PARCA Botanica: Dreams Grow Here.” The campaign, like the Auxiliary, is focused on empowering people with developmental disabilities to live their best lives.
