We recently held our first annual fundraiser called The Great Donate and it was indeed very great! In case you were unable to make it, we had live music, cocktails with KC Rieger Whiskey, Gin and Vodka, appetizers donated by Westside Local and Fevere Bread, an outdoor smore's bar and a silent auction! We also did a live donation to all of our eight Kansas City partnered organizations and donated 400 pairs of underwear!
Here are some pictures of us doing our live donations:
Now, for some fun shots of guests enjoying our event:
Ladies and Gentleman, on Saturday October 24, 2015 from 7pm-11pm at MADI headquarters (1659 Summit, KCMO) we will be hosting our first annual fundraiser, The Great Donate! This fundraiser is to help spread the word about our new 501c3 non-profit status of MADI Apparel's subsidiary, MADI Donations, INC. We'll also be doing some undie donating live at the event to our local partnered organizations!
Live and in person, we will be donating 50 pairs of underwear to all eight of our Kansas City partnered organizations! You heard it, that's 400 total pairs! And we could not be more excited!
Hope House, one of our Kansas City partnered organizations we will be donating to for the second time at The Great Donate fundraiser.
The event will be lots of fun, featuring live music, cocktails with KC Rieger Whiskey, Gin and Vodka, appetizers donated by Westside Local and Fevere Bread, an outdoor fall smore's bar and a silent auction! Tickets are $25 with a $10 gift card to MADI Apparel included in the price of your ticket! Fair Value of Benefits Received: $17. $8 of ticket price may be claimed as a tax-deductible charitable contribution! To purchase a ticket, click here:
We will also be accepting charitable donations at the fundraiser (which are tax deductible)! The donations will directly help survivors of domestic violence, survivors of rape, those affected by natural disaster, etc by funding additional production of underwear to be donated, out-of-state and abroad donation drop-off trips, and marketing/video PSAs to help raise awareness. This is a great way to be able to help women in need without buying underwear for yourself.
Keep in mind, underwear is the most needed and most under-donated item of clothing as it lands on the "most urgent needs list" at most womens shelters across the country. Help us change that and Make a Difference in the lives of women across the street and around the world!

A few pictures from other events at our headquarters and storefront location:
On July 11th MADI Apparel held the Grande Ivory Affair celebrating the launch of our second color option, ivory! The event was a blast with music, drinks, appetizers and lots of panty shopping!
We have had many customers requesting ivory for bridal and bachelorette gifts and it really made perfect sense for us to offer it because MADI Apparel is focused on three words: simple, elegant and powerful. We want our colors and designs to reflect those three words, and now with the addition of ivory to our color options we believe we are!
