James Madison University graduate and Leesburg boutique owner Shelley Scheerschmidt is on a mission to bring timeless and contemporary style to Northern Virginia women while raising money for college scholarships.
She has teamed up with Women for Madison to develop a fundraising event for the JMU Dolley Madison Scholarship Fund. During August, 10 percent of purchases from JMU graduates and families of students will be donated to the fund.
“So many high school students aspire to attend JMU today, but cost can be a barrier to a college education for the most promising and deserving students. The need for scholarships is great, and you can help future Dukes—while loving how you look,” Scheerschmidt stated.
Fundraising is part of Madisonbelle’s Fashion Cents program and Scheerschmidtplans to continue helping the community with more fashion-oriented fundraisers. Earlier this year, she raised several thousand dollars via her pseudomyxoma fundraiser in honor of the founder of Madisonbelle, Kim Dziabis.
Madisonbelle is at 5 Loudoun St. SE in downtown Leesburg.
