In much the same that polo fundraisers in the DC area sprouted up everywhere after the success of the 2006 Ambassador’s Cup which included my nonprofit, The Courage Cup; fashion show fundraisers have been popping up all over town since the success of Fashion for Paws in 2007! Not only am I modeling this Saturday in Fashion for Paws, but I’m also modeling to benefit Suited for Change next Tuesday!
The Little Black Dress Club of Washington is hosting a fashion show fundraiser showcasing cute athletic gear from lululemon‘s Spring Collection at The Sports Club/LA at the Ritz-Carlton in Downtown Washington. In addition to the fashion show, there will be a raffle, complimentary appetizers, Little Black Dress Cocktail samples, and drink specials. Event attendees will receive a swag bag filled with goodies such as a one-week pass to The Sports Club/LA, a 15% discount at lululemon, a discount on services at Easel Hair Salon, bath melts, body butter, lip balm, and more! I suggest you purchase your tickets online for $35, as they are $40 at the door.
My beautiful friend, WUSA 9’s Morning Traffic Anchor, Angie Goff will the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event. Other models for the event include:
For those who have never heard of The Little Black Dress Club, they have created a community of interesting and adventurous women who enjoy a variety of activities. Their members host events as diverse as casual happy hours and gourmet dinners to rock climbing and scuba diving. Their mission is to create a worldwide community so as when women move or travel, there will always be a friend to share an occasion.
Funds raised at this fashion show event will benefit Suited for Change, which is a terrific organization that provides professional clothing and ongoing career and life skills education to low-income women to increase their employment and job retention potential and to contribute to their economic independence. Their services are available at no charge and by referral only to low-income women who have completed job readiness programs and are seeking employment.
I hope that you will join us at this fun event next week!
