The Foundation for Thomas and St. Francis Hospitals recently started a charity group called "Chics for Charity".

The goal is to raise money for the GAP fund and other services at St. Francis Hospital. Organizers also want to create opportunities for women in the Kanawha Valley to network and create opportunities for each other in business and in the community.

Thursday night saw the group's "Looking Great, Feeling Great" event. It featured a number of businesses that cater to food, decorating, fashion and more. "Women in the community learn to de-stress for the summer, how to eat and live healthier, how to make their wardrobe work for spring and summer. At the same time we are raising money to give back to the community to benefit those people who do not have all the luxuries and benefits that we do when it comes to health care," said Sandy Zando, with the Foundation for Thomas and St. Francis Hospitals.

Chics for Charity is already planning for its next event. You can learn more about how to get involved by clicking this link
