A little bit of Hollywood glamour came to the Good Life City Saturday night. 

The Awesome Business Women Association of Albany and Design Elegance joined together to host an event to benefit battered women in the community. 

Everyone got a chance to walk the red carpet to take pictures. 

Representatives from Lillypad and Haven of Hope also spoke at the event. 

ABWA charter member Barbara Francis said, "We want to show women, young ladies, that you can achieve your goal, no matter what."

Francis said the goal of the night was to raise awareness of domestic violence.
