Britt Jackson, vice president and general manager of Neiman Marcus Cherry Creek; Event Co-chairs Robin Chotin, Bonnie Mandarich and Abby Perlmutter Miller.The Mercedes-Benz of Denver Rev the Runway Fashion Show presented by Neiman Marcus and benefiting National Jewish Health was held at the new Mercedes-Benz of Denver showroom Thursday, November 2. Event Chairs Robin Chotin, Bonnie Mandarich and Abby Perlmutter Miller drove the event which attracted more than 350 attendees and raised $165,000 for care and research at National Jewish Health, the leading respiratory hospital in the nation. 

“My husband and I have been supporting the hospital for more than 20 years,” said Mandarich. “I felt this was the perfect event for me to help lead; it has been a fantastic experience and way to rev up my involvement at National Jewish Health.”

The sunlit showroom of Mercedes-Benz of Denver was a stylish and unique venue where guests could browse the latest in high-performance vehicles, visit the pop-up lipstick bar, dine on gourmet foods from chef Troy Guard, and get a specialty cocktail or tequila tasting from the Rev It Up Bar. As the sun set, the lights went up on the runway where Neiman Marcus showcased the latest in women’s and men’s fashions from New York, Paris and Milan. CBS4 meteorologist and Rev the Runway committee member Lauren Whitney was master of ceremonies.

The event also featured a DJ, as well as a silent and live auction. The live auction included an equestrian painting completed live at the event by artist Andrée Hudson, as well as a premier package to the 2018 National Jewish Health Beaux Arts Ball with a day of beauty and shopping at Neiman Marcus. The package finished off with luxury transportation by Jay’s Valet and accommodations at the Maven Hotel courtesy of Sage Hospitality and Christie and Walter Isenberg.
