Catwalk for Charity, a local nonprofit organization that inspires and empowers impoverished children in Haiti through education, hosted a kick-off reception at Saks Fifth Avenue in Bal Harbour Shops in anticipation of the charity’s annual fashion fundraiser. Nearly one hundred guests enjoyed a casual fashion show throughout the night and light bites. Guests who attended the reception at Saks Fifth Avenue received a personal shopping discount on top brands in store. Attendees also received swag bags, and enjoyed complimentary hors d’oeuvres and cocktails throughout the night.
Hosted by renowned Haitian-American actress Garcelle Beauvais and acclaimed WPLG Local 10 news anchor Calvin Hughes, Catwalk for Charity’s fifth annual fashion show and brunch fundraiser will take place on September 9th at noon at the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach. A portion of the proceeds from sales made at the kick-off reception were donated to Catwalk for Charity to provide quality education for impoverished children in Haiti. Thanks to the generosity of the community, the nonprofit organization also donates back-to-school supplies annually to more than 2,100 Haitian children between the ages of 4 and 14 years old at PRODEV schools, as well as food and toys for the holidays for over 5,000 children. #CatwalkforCharity @catwalk_miami
