The world has a way of showing us things when we least expect to see them. Sometimes it's in a subtle message, sometimes it's by way of a much needed gift, yesterday that message came by showing me the kindness and willingness of others to give back to the community for which they are a part of and famed Fashion Designer Trina Turk and Camillus House & Health showed me just that!
In celebration of Camillus House and more than 5 decades of service in Miami-Dade County Designer Trina Turk hosted an evening of fashion, friendship food, drinks, and community engagement at the Trina Turk Boutique in the Heart of Miami.
Guests were treated to Champaign, and delicious Lite Bites while shopping the latest Trina Turk Summer Collection and received style advice from Trina herself. 15% off all proceeds were being provided to Camillus House in recognition and support of the important role they play in the community.

I had the opportunity to chat with Trina on why she thought it was important to recognize Camillus House & Health and she stated she witnessed first hand what homelessness can do to a community both in California and Miami and is in total support of the benefits provided by Camillus House. Trina has been a part of the Miami community for less than a year but wasted no time giving back. When I asked Trina what was one of her favorite things about the Miami location she stated being able to see the community around her grow. Spoken like a true Boss with a Big Heart! Love it!
