Maxine’s Closet is a fundraiser in memory of Maxine Thurston-Fischer, PhD, who was a trailblazer and activist in the social work field. Maxine was also a serious fashionista. In keeping with Maxine’s efforts on behalf of marginalized children and youth, Maxine’s Closet will generate awareness of and support for Florida Foster Care Review (FFCR) through fashion and design. The event will feature the sale or silent auction of more than 100 items donated by Maxine, including designer clothing, jewelry and glasses, either new or gently used. The evening will include cocktails, lite bites, music and, of course, fashion.
