Heart House Charity Fashion Show Fundraiser - Angels on the Runway

Buy your tickets now for the August 23rd Charity Fashion Show to benefit Heart House in Austin, Texas.

The 2nd Annual Heart House Charity Fashion Show: Angels on the Runway is the premier fashion show of the season, including a reception with food, drinks, entertainment and a sensational silent auction.

Original designs by Robert Comstock and Joanna Ruley-Garza along with new lines by emerging designers Stephanie Montes and Stephanie Jimenez. With a New York fashion director at the helm, we expect the show and Austin Monthly Magazine’s VIP Afterparty to be one of the best events of the year!

As a new event in 2007, which drew over 500 people, the Heart House Charity Fashion Show was a tremendous success and named one of the Top Ten Fashion Events of 2007. Now in its second year and with larger goals in mind, Heart House will reach a larger audience of 600 attendees, in addition to tremendous media sponsorship engagement with Austin Monthly Magazine and Mix 94.7 Radio.

This event will raise $80,000 to be used to support the expansion of Heart House . Heart House’s innovative afterschool program is a daily program for school-age children in neighborhoods known for high crime, high unemployment, and lack of affordable, quality care for children. At Heart House, children have year-round access to caring adult mentors, homework assistance, art enrichment, computer learning, and literacy programs. Children at Heart House show significant improvement in every area of their social and academic development once enrolled in this model youth development program. Net proceeds will allow Heart House to open its doors to more at-risk children in Austin.

Buy your tickets, come have fun - food - drinks, and support an amazing charity. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday night in Austin.

Have A Great Day.
