TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

If you love fast cars and hot fashion this is your weekend in Tampa Bay area.

The annual Cars & Couture "Fashion for Charity" event is Friday night at the International Jet Center Hanger in Tampa. The 108,000 square foot facility will be the centerpiece for high-end items like art collections, designer couture wear, jewelry, private jets and luxury exotic cars.

"I’m bringing several cars, including my Corvette Stingray C7," said car enthusiast Danna Alloway.

The Palm Harbor businesswoman puts her car collection on display for social events to raise money for Autism Speaks.

"I’d do it everyday to support an agency that helps children with Autism live a mainstream life," said Alloway.
