Nectar’s stage often prepares for a musician to bring in drumsets and sound systems, but Thursday night, the venue set up a cat walk for Martha’s Vineyard Fashion Week.

MV Fashion Week, along with Avalon Magazine, invited well-known local designers and stores, such as Laughing Bear, Red Mannequin and Lorraine Parish, to show off the latest fashion trends and at the same time, to raise money for Angel Flight Northeast.

Angel Flight NE provides free flights to patients and their families who need transportation to and from their medical appointments.

Angel Flight’s Corporate Development and Community Outreach Director Keith D’Entremont said, in the last 15 years, the organization has made over 8,000 flights to and from Martha’s Vineyard. In the process, they helped many people who needed to get to hospitals or doctors’ appointments but couldn’t afford to pay for everything on their own.
