Runway Moms for a Cause - September 30, 2011




WHAT:            "Runway Moms for a Cause" (RMFAC) is an impactful intersection of philanthropy and fashion at its best. Labeled a visual fashion statement for Global Goodwill, RMFC is a runway show for philanthropists to take a stance on an often overlooked issue, and lend a helping hand towards a solution. The inaugural black-tie event will focus on influential Washington, DC mothers raising funds for orphans through the United for Kids Foundation (UKF) -  a 501c3 organization committed to fighting poverty and illiteracy through education and social welfare programs in Nigeria.  RMFAC is recognized by the Embassy of Nigeria as a prelude to the Nigerian Independence Day celebrations.
Participating mothers will be adorned in one of a kind designs by L-Shandi and guests will partake in a silent auction featuring original artwork, sent from Nigeria, by the benefitting orphans depicting their life goals and dreams.
