Drive 2 Thrive III
Being in the press allows me many opportunities. One of which is attending FABULOUS runway shows. But the kind that mean the most to me are the ones that give back to our thriving community.
Each year, Echelon Life hosts the Drive to Thrive fashion benefit to strengthen community organizations which ‘stand in the gap’ between our citizenry and opportunity in the core areas of health, literacy and mentorship. The fashion benefit has previously featured 2008 Project Runway winner, Christian Siriano, and 2009 Bravo TV “Project Runway” Winner, Leanne Marshall.
This year’s event, Discover Wonderland, will take place on Saturday, October 16, 2010 at Port Discovery featuring Lifetime TV’s Project Runway Designers Carol Hannah and Jay Sario, and Bravo TV’s Reco Chappelle from “The Fashion Show”. Local designers Bishmie Cromartie and Wendy Kaufman will also be a part of this fab event!
A portion of proceeds will go towards Girls Empowerment Mission (GEM), a program to empower high school girls from under-served communities and empower them to be independent, self-sufficient, and confident young woman.
Hopefully I will see you there. Don’t be afraid to support a good cause, it’s only right! Click here to purchase tickets.
