All White Celebrity Labor Day Event including a Fashion Show & Charity Fundraiser

Innovating Marketing & Management (IMM) in conjunction with La Bella Elise have joined forces to produce the “All White Celebrity Labor Day Event including a Fashion Show & Charity Fundraiser.” The fashion show will feature national brands as well as local designers in the Texas market. Additionally the Fashion Show will serve as a fundraiser to benefit Oakland Raider Antonio Smith’s foundation “Little People with Big Challenges.” (http://www.littlepeoplewithbigchallenges.org/

“Little People with Big Challenges” was formed by Antonio and his sister Antwonette Smith. The two are inspired to empower the social, physical and emotional well-being of children and families who are undergoing adversities.

LWPBC targets children in the lower socio-economic areas. There is a growing gap between childhood obesity in higher vs. lower income families. It is evident that there is an increase in lower income families due to the higher cost of eating healthy and the lack of resources to fund the participation in extracurricular activities. These circumstances often produce an environment, which inevitably leads to obesity.

Event Details:

Date: August 29, 2014

Time: 9:00 PM

Cost: $35

Where: Magnolia Hotels

1100 Texas Ave

Houston, TX 77002

Attendees will enjoy gift giveaways from sponsors, cocktails, and a luxury ambiance. Since the beginning of time, fashion has sculpted our society providing individuals an outlet to express themselves; both groups are plugged in the fashion industry and are abreast with the latest fashion and style trends to bring the audience an unforgettable experience. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Little People With Big Challenges Foundation.

You can support the foundation’s mission to fight obesity by purchasing tickets at http://www.allwhiteccfs.com/.
