16th Annual Couture for a Cure: An Evening of Fashion, Fun and Philanthropy

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

Van Andel Institute invites you to join us for the 16th annual Couture for a Cure—an evening full of fashion, fun and philanthropy in support of VAI's mission to improve health and enhance lives now and in the future.

This intimate event will feature a one-of-a-kind runway fashion presentation by Leigh's, along with a special look at the Fall 2021 collection of designer Veronica Beard. Guests will be treated to a special virtual appearance by Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard, co-founders of the eponymous women's fashion brand. Experience new products and on-trend looks from Artistry™ on the runway and at the beauty bar.

"As we move forward into a world of possibility, this year's Couture for a Cure feels particularly special," said Carol Van Andel, executive director of the David and Carol Van Andel Family Foundation. "I'm so looking forward to reuniting with old friends and meeting new ones during this wonderful night of fundraising for the important research and education programs at Van Andel Institute."

All Couture for a Cure guests will receive a swag bag of exclusive gifts and treats and will have the opportunity to sample delicious food and cocktails throughout the night. Sponsors will receive exclusive benefits, including VIP gifts from Artistry.

Guests will also be treated to live entertainment from the fabulous AB and be able to participate in a silent auction. All proceeds benefit biomedical research and K–12 and graduate education programs at the Institute.
