Maxine’s Closet at McCormick Place on Thursday, March 12, 2015. I had such a wonderful time with all of the amazing clothes, great food and wine. I bought a beautiful jacket, belt and shoes.

“Maxine’s Closet is a fundraiser in memory of Maxine Thurston-Fischer, PhD, who was a trailblazer and activist in the social work field. Maxine was also a serious fashionista. In keeping with Maxine’s efforts on behalf of marginalized children and youth, Maxine’s Closet will generate awareness of and support for Florida Foster Care Review (FFCR) through fashion and design. The event will feature the sale or silent auction of more than 100 items donated by Maxine, including designer clothing, jewelry and glasses, either new or gently used. The evening will include cocktails, lite bites, music and, of course, fashion.”

“All proceeds from the sale of items at Maxine’s Closet will be donated to FFCR and will be used to further the organization’s work. In keeping with FFCR’s mission and with Maxine’s tradition of giving back, guests were encouraged to bring new or gently used handbags or shoes, for Dress for Success.”
