Known for its glitz and glamour, the Annual Celebrity Holiday Fashion Show, benefiting The Arc Livingston, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year with a goal of raising $100,000 to empower individuals with development disabilities and their families to ensure that they as citizens are valued, and that they can participate fully in, and contribute to, the life of their community. This year they will be showcasing an skilfully crafted handmade leather tote bag collection for women .
