Fashion on the Rocks@Clau was the first young professionals' event and auction of the Hearing Speech & Deaf Center of Greater Cincinnati.

The evening at the trendy Club Clau in Over-the-Rhine featured a fashion show, party and combined silent/live auction.

Arlene Aranzamendez was event designer. Committee members included Karen Kotsovos, Jody Lazarow, Brigid Mercer, Lisa Scott, Sean Williams, Angela Laible, Rob Thoroughman, Nelson Lees, Drake Jackson, Sue Ransohoff and Jim Metzger.

Guests enjoyed champagne cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and music from local DJ Will Bensow, while bidding for glamorous items available for auction.

More than 400 guests supported this event, raising $30,000 in donations and contributions to help the center.
