Liv Boutique Hosts Shopping Fundraiser on March 21

Fundraiser co-host Hollis Gargala.

Six influential women from the Louisville community are coming together to host a spring-themed charitable and social event 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 21 at Liv Boutique, a women’s clothing store located at 3704 Lexington Road.

“Bringing together women from all over our community is part of a new community-minded initiative at Liv Boutique,” said owner Lucie Stansbury. “We intend to create a ‘salon’ that evening where women can come to our store and meet each other. Each host brings something unique to the table, and we’re thrilled that they’ve created this opportunity for us.”

In addition, Liv Boutique is partnering with Maryhurst for this event as part of its charitable involvement in the community. A percentage of the evening’s proceeds will go to Maryhurst, which provides treatment programs to children with emotional disabilities caused by traumatic experiences of abuse and neglect. Several of the hosts regularly volunteer their time at Maryhurst. The event is open to the community.

The six hosts involved in the in-store event represent different parts of the Louisville community – the arts scene, business, volunteerism and charitable involvement. The hosts are:

Austin Anderton

Ritu Furlan

Hollis Gargala

Annie Locke

Amanda Schriber

Elizabeth Woolsey

“I’m excited and honored to be part of this event that supports Maryhurst,” said event co-host Amanda Schriber, who lends her time to the Kentucky College of Art + Design at Spalding University, the Speed Art Museum and St. Francis School. “It says a lot when a group of women can come together to support a cause and have fun at the same time.”

The evening, sponsored by Korbel California champagne, will provide an opportunity for women to shop the latest styles for the upcoming springtime gala, Derby and wedding season. Liv Boutique is a hip Louisville store that specializes in providing contemporary apparel. The boutique showcases talented fashion designers from around the world and merchandises jewelry, accessories, art and home goods not found in many local stores.  VT
