Join FOX 29's Jennaphr Frederick this Sunday night at Style Wars 2012 Fashion Show and Competition, a fundraiser for adoptapig.org, a charity to help fight childhood cancers.
Check out this segment from Good Day for more information. Tickets are still available.
Jenn will emcee the event, taking place at 5pm at Joseph Anthony Salon, 243 Baltimore Pike in Glen Mills, PA. The event will feature a special guest performance by up-and-coming NY-based pop group, SHe.
The highlight of the night, which will begin with a special runway show by Kids' Runway for Research, will be when teams of stylists from Joseph Anthony, models from Jax Modeling Agency, and the Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders compete for best overall look—hair, makeup, and wardrobe on the runway. Saks Fifth Avenue Bala Cynwyd, who hosted a star-studded pre-party for the event on September 5th, will be providing the looks during the runway show and will also be offering guests an exclusive fragrance pop-up shop.
The competition will be judged by the area's top authorities on style including Jennifer Utley, known for her styling career with Access Hollywood, fashion illustrator & style expert, Dallas Shaw, Jimmy Contreras aka JimmyStyle from PhillyStreetStyle.com, celebrity stylist, Jen Abrams, and Dee DeLuca-Mattos, legendary style guru and Vice President of CURES by Avancé.
Guests will enjoy complimentary gourmet food from annual event sponsor Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar and an open bar from Philadelphia Distilling (Penn 1681 Rye Vodka and Bluecoat American Dry Gin) as well as Victory Brewing Company.
One hundred percent (100%) of funds raised through sponsorships, ticket sales, and a LIVE auction at Style Wars 2012 will directly benefit the Adopt a Pig program. The initiative began in April 2005 when a father and daughter painted their first piggy bank shortly after learning of her cancer diagnosis. This project was initially a distraction for their family but later transformed into a source of therapy. Now, thousands of piggy banks are painted by children in the region going through cancer treatments. The painted piggy banks are an important coping mechanism and lead the fundraising for the charity. They are sold ("adopted") for $25.00 and proceeds benefit a variety of support services and coping mechanisms for patients and their families. Learn more about the charity at www.adoptapig.org.
