A La Mode Boutique Recovery Fund

To our shock, Ellicott City has suffered another deadly flood. A La Mode Boutique had only been reopened for just 6 weeks when this flood hit. After struggling for 21 months to return to Ellicott City following the 2016 flood, Amie and Chris have again lost so much. The first flood was a total loss to their store.  They fought incredibly hard and now are faced with another daunting task to recover. Even at the top of Main Street, the new space endured a lot of water and damage to many fixtures and product. Once again, they are having to start all over.

Amie and Chris are amazing additions to the community and donate so much of their time and energy to this great town. Please, consider giving back. Amie volunteers much of her time, not just to the business, but to the community with event planning, fundraising, and creating excitement and awareness for Main Street. She has loved this amazing town for over 20 years and wants to see it be a successful and fun place to visit.

Amie & Chris plan to give a portion of the funds raised to help support their staff that have also been affected by this tragedy.

From the bottom of their hearts, they appreciate everything the community has done for them over the last 3 years and they truly thank you for your support.


Amie & Chris have been such a great friends and I hope for the best for them. I am running this campaign on their behalf.
