PC Moment: The Spirit of Taos event kicked off at Melissa Benge Collection with hors d’oeuvre and margaritas. Hosted by the Friends of Wilkinson Center, it was an opportunity for guests to get their Taos-chic attire for the main event, which will be held on Friday, October 28 at The Lot in Lakewood.

Shoppers received 10 percent off all merchandise, and Melissa Benge donated 10 percent of all proceeds from the evening back to the Wilkinson Center — a promotion that will last through Saturday, October 1, for those who were unable to attend. Patrons received a decorative coffee mug from Melissa Benge Collection, a jar of La Casita salsa, and the newest issue of PaperCity magazine.
