On April 16, 2015, Theresa Roemer who has the largest closet in America invited women into her home and closet to raise money for The Women’s Home. For over 50 years, The Women’s Home has been helping women who have experienced homelessness because of mental illness, abuse, or addiction. The Women’s Home provides residential treatment and transitional housing. Over 90% of women who participate in this program for six months or longer leave with income and housing.
Women brought their gently used high end and designer items to Theresa’s home to donate them for a runway show and shopping event that benefits The Women’s Home. This event is the 6th annual renew and reDo fashion show, which will be held on August 19, 2015 at the Wortham Grand Foyer. Mark your calendars this is an amazing opportunity to purchase fabulous designer clothes at deep discounts for a great cause. This awesome event is all about women helping women. Chau Nguyen is the Manager of Community Involvement at the Women’s Home and the event chairs are Sneha Merchant and Mandy Kao, and Theresa Roemer is recognized as the Fashion Icon.
Not only did Theresa open up her home and closet to help this cause, but she also geneously donated a $10,000 Oscar de la Renta gown, and 10% of her collection’s proceeds, True and Real, to benefit the cause. The Women’s Home is truly a great charity and this event at Theresa’s beautiful home will help many women who are struggling with homelessness, mental illness, abuse, and addiction.
