Think Social, Drink Local: Fashion Meets Charity
Callie Taylor, MBA Class of 2016
On March 4, the Social Enterprise Association and the Luxury & Retail Club came together to organize Think Social, Drink Local: a fashion show featuring local designers and food vendors that raises funds to support the Social Impact Internship Fund (SIIF). SIIF provides a financial stipend of up to $10,000 to select first-year, full-time MBA students who wish to complete a summer internship working at the intersection of business and society, where they can use their business education to positively impact the broader world around them. SIIF recipients have worked with non-profit organizations, for-profit social enterprises, and started their own social ventures. Thanks to the tireless efforts of the student organizers (Gillian Andross, Kathryn Carski, Ava Ginsberg, Rachel Rothkrug, Meghna Saxena Sarma, Anna Singh, and Margarita Vinnik) and over 50 additional volunteer models and coordinators, TSDL 2016 was a resounding success. Bravo!
