What is Fashion For a Cause?
“Fashion for a Cause” is a PUBLIC EVENT at Stratus Rooftop Lounge. Guests are not required to pay for entry. We are only asking for “donations” towards the Women’s Cancer fundrasier. Your “ticket” is your donation. If you wish to donate additional funds, you can do so by selecting “donation”.
During the event, Stratus will hold their normal Happy Hour specials 5pm-8pm ($5 Call Drinks, Selected House Wine, Selected Champagne. $8 Specialty Cocktails. HALF PRICED FLATBREADS AND SNACKS. HALF PRICED BOTTLES).
What is the Carol Galvin Women’s Cancer Foundation?
Rick Galvin is a fire fighter in NYC and founder of the Carol Galvin Women’s Cancer Foundation. Rick currently raises money for a mother with cancer in NYC. His mother actually died from cancer when he was 11. This is why he started the foundation.
Why are we having this event?
As women ourselves, we wanted to help Rick in his efforts to help women in need. We asked him to bring the event to Philadelphia, so we could help women locally. The Philadelphia “Fashion for a Cause” event will be held on February 25th at Stratus Rooftop Lounge. The event will be in honor of Kathryn Marie Robinson who passed away from cancer on December 4, 2015. Kathryn left behind three children and husband. Her husband, Michael, decided to donate the proceeds to other families in need. 100% of the proceeds will be split between a local Philadelphia in need (who wishes to remain anonymous) and Nikki Powers, a mother battling cancer in NYC.
What will take place at the event?
While Rick is a firefighter in NYC, his primary job is manager to teen pop star, Meredith O’Connor. To encourage guests to come out to support the cause, Meredith performs at the event. There will also be a fashion show featuring lines by top designers, Elizabeth Delgado of Elizabeth Delgado Desings, Bill McCall of Utopia Armoury, and Dartanya. Michelle Lee, of Michelle Lee Entertainment, will be the event DJ and MC.
Event Date: Thursday February 25th
Event times: 5pm-9pm
Location: Stratus Rooftop Bar & Lounge Philadelphia

A few words from Michelle Lee (aka DeeJay Shelly)
I DJ’d this event at The Park in NYC back in October. It was a great event so I wanted to bring it home to Philadelphia to help women here in our area. I really hope you can make it out! There will be a special guest performance by International Pop Star, Meredith O’Connor! Meredith is an anti-bullying icon. I will DJ/MC the event, while playing along with an Electric Violinist Lisa Sebastiani!! We have designers and models from both NYC and Philadelphia!
