The Young Women's League of New Canaan invites the community to Couture for a Cause -- an evening of cocktails and light bites, dancing, a silent auction and a fashion show of this spring's trends. Join the YWL for its spring fundraising party May 4, at 7 p.m. at the Loading Dock in Stamford.

YWL and Newcomers members will conquer the catwalk in looks featured by New Canaan retailers including Lyn Evans Potpourri Designs, Caren Forbes, Togs, L'Armoire, True Blue, Dorothy Mann, Skirtin' Around and Soleil Toile. The YWL announces that Kiklo, Benefit, Space NK and Blue Mercury will be assisting with hair and makeup for the models. New this year will be male models wearing looks by Island Outfitters and J. McLaughlin.

Diageo participates with a wine tasting and a Scotch Bar featuring Classic Malts and Johnnie Walker.

Visit www.ywlnewcanaan.org to buy tickets ($75). Proceeds go to Mercy Learning, Person-to-Person and The Workplace.
