Last June I ran my first Race for the Place 5K, a fundraiser for The Gathering Place. From support groups and nutrition classes to medical libraries and their HairPeace Wig Salons, The Gathering Place provides programs for anyone affected by cancer in Greater Cleveland.

I ran it for my dad, who beat melanoma and two rounds of lymphoma with a smile on his face and strength that continues to amaze me.

On Saturday, November 23, you’ll have the chance to support The Gathering Place’s mission — and you don’t need to lace up a pair of sneakers to do it.

From 5-9pm, Beachwood Place will host Compassion from Fashion. It’s the event’s 5th anniversary and will raise money not just for The Gathering Place, but also University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

Ticketholders will enjoy food from Nordstrom Sixth & Pine and Maggiano’s Little Italy, a cash bar, a $10 Beachwood Place gift card (for the first 1,000 tickets sold), and exclusive retailer discounts throughout the mall.  

These one-night-only discounts are a great way to get an early start on holiday shopping or treat yourself!

In addition to food, drink, and shopping, Compassion from Fashion includes a fashion show at 7pm

  • Glenn Anderson, Q104 Fee’s Kompany personality, with his daughter, Madeline
  • Mitchell Heard, Lake Erie Monsters center

  • Ryan “Mickey” McClean, Cosmo’s Hottest Bachelor of the Year
