Fundraiser for veterans to be held Sept. 25


A Shop for a Cause fundraiser supporting the Veterans of Foreign Wars will be held at the Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club on Sunday, Sept. 25 from 3 to 6 p.m. The event will feature 16 independent distributers for the women and children’s clothing line LuLaRoe.

The benefit for veterans and military families was organized by Michelle Storm. Storm is the daughter of the late Gordy Bartow, a longtime Rancho Santa Fe resident, and Susan Bartow.

“I am a military spouse and anything veterans-oriented is very close to my heart,” said Storm. “The VFW helped me out in my time of need when my husband was deployed, so I felt that it’s my turn to give back to them.”

LuLaRoe clothing is not available in stores or on a company website— LuLaRoe consultants like Storm sell clothing out of their homes, under the mantra of “grace, charm and hustle.”

All proceeds from the sales will benefit the VFW, an organization that ensures veterans are respected for their service, always receive their earned entitlements and are “recognized for the sacrifices they and their loved ones have made on behalf of this great country.”

The VFW has a variety of programs that assist veterans in their post-military life, as well as programs that support active duty families who face unforeseen circumstances.
