Date Night ~ Girls Night Out ~ Great Cause!
An event close to my heart which I passionately recommend to families is happening this spring, Runway Moms for the Cause. Runway Moms for a Cause (RMFC) is a fashion show and gala which raises funds for non-profit organizations.
The beneficiary of the Friday May 9, 2014 show is Kidsave International, which finds loving homes for forgotten older children worldwide living in orphanages and in need of parents.Kidsave International. Kidsave has helped over 12 governments and 3,000 children. Yet countless children live in orphanages and foster care. Kidsave’s goal is to give every child has a permanent family.
Businesses are essential to a successful Runway Moms for the Cause event! Businesses can donate goods/services to auction or raffle, purchase sponsorship package, ad space and purchase tickets to the event.
Lara Akinsanya is the founder of RMFC and the face behind internationally acclaimed ready-to-wear clothing brand L~Shandi Designs. Her designs are STUNNING, detailed and highlight a woman’s body like nothing I have ever worn. Since Lara’s grand entrance to the global fashion scene, she has been heralded by the media and is an active member of the Greater Washington Fashion Chamber of Commerce. She has participated on panel discussions related to economic development through fashion programs in the greater Washington DC area. And she is a mother of twin preschoolers!
At Runway Moms for the Cause, items for the auction and giveaways will be especially for moms, kids, and families and there will be special performances for guests to enjoy. The event is also unique in the sense that most of us involved are all volunteers (the goal is to have everything at the event done by volunteers) rallied together for one purpose: to raise funds for Kidsave International.
I am a media partner of Runway Moms for the Cause, happily donating my time to help promote this event. I attended Runway Moms for the Cause in 2011 and my husband Chris and I had one of our best nights out ever. I love that the ticket price is accessible for such a luxurious gala, and that all proceeds go to helping children in need. I am also walking as a “mom model” with some phenomenal women in the community.
VIP and general admission tickets are discounted until April 27. I heartily recommend the VIP ticket because this ticket includes hors d’oeuvres and drinks (open bar till 8pm), 3 raffle tickets, a gift bag and an autographed copy of Style Bible: What to Wear to Work by celebrity host Lauren Rothman of Styleauteur.
I also urge businesses to sponsor this event. Sponsorship packages are very reasonable and media partners include small fry like me and big fish like Washingtonian Mom.
Runway Moms for the Cause is the greatest charity event I have attended, hands down. Please attend or if you own a local business, please support the event by promoting your business!
