It takes two to tango, but sometimes, it’s just one. For every $1 raised from the Tangerine Tango Fashion Show in September, four meals were provided to families in North Georgia and metro Atlanta. More than 100 guests, dressed in orange to support Hunger Action Month, enjoyed an evening of specialty cocktails created by Wrecking Bar Brewpub, heavy hors d’oeuvres provided by Proof of the Pudding and fall fashion designed by BCBGMaxazria, Hugo Boss, Theory and others, while fund-raising to support the Atlanta Community Food Bank. Attendees weren’t the only ones dressed in orange, however. Each drink, fashion piece and decor item showcased the hue to honor the mission. The third annual fashion event took place at Lenox Square in Bloomingdale’s second-floor New View area (next to the handbag department). The Food Bank and a host committee of volunteers raised more than $16,300 from the soiree. Raffles and silent auction items, including Alliance Theatre passes and Total Wine, Seven Lamps, Maggiano’s, California Pizza Kitchen and CorePower Yoga gift cards, rounded out the evening. – Jordana Klein[nggallery id=51]
