Callen Construction Announces 6th Annual “Refashion for Life” Proceeds

Dec. 6, 2013

Callen Construction, a family-owned, full-service home improvement and remodeling company in Muskego, Wis., announced that the “Refashion for Life” fashion show fundraising event benefiting CommonGround Ministry/Elena’s House generated net proceeds of more than $27,000. The benefit took place on Wed., Sept. 11, at the Callen Showroom and company grounds in Muskego.

Proceeds will be used to support the programs offered by CommonGround Ministry/Elena’s House in Wauwatosa, which provides physical, spiritual, and emotional support to people infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Elena’s House, offering a holistic ministry that is both personal and communal, is a home for four to five people that wish to reside in a safe and supportive living environment. CommonGround Ministry is a 501(c)3 organization funded through the contributions of individuals, organizations, and foundations.

Callen Construction co-owner Tom Callen said the event allows people to see how fashion is found in what people wear, as well as how they renovate their home. “The new clothing and the various home improvement components available enabled us to show attendees how to create a look that works for them in what they wear and where they live,” Callen said. “This show provided ways for people to enhance their wardrobes and homes in an economical and environmentally-friendly way.”

The event featured a fashion show that combined the newest looks in clothing with fashionable products for the home, including countertops, cabinetry, windows, plumbing and light fixtures, flooring, and hardware. In addition to the runway show, there was a silent and voice auction that featured entertainment and sporting tickets, boutique certificates, and more. Saz’s Catering provided heavy hors d’oeuvres, plus there was music by Mr. Lucky Light. Lynee Ruiz, The Fashionista Writer for MilwaukeeMag.com, coordinated the fashion show and served as the emcee.
