Dream Kids in conjunction with Macy's held it's 3rd annual “2011 Runway RED Wonderland Kids Fashion Show featuring Celebrity Kids” fundraising event today from 7pm - 10pm at the Fernbank Museum in Atlanta, Georgia.
Our oldest son, Roland Jay and I attending the event. It was such a joy watching the young models walk down the runway and participate in such an important cause benefiting HIV/AIDS Awareness. Proceeds from the event will benefit young children with HIV/AIDS and other life threatening diseases.
Mark Hayes, Anchor from Fox 5 Atlanta News was the MC and did a fantastic job keeping the crowd pumped up and well informed. There were several musical performances including Gabbie Raye and the OMG Girlz.
HIV/AIDS is real and still very much alive in the African American community. For more information, please visit: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/topics/aa/index.htm
Show Me The Way Foundation is a 501-c3 non-profit organization geared towards serving disadvantaged youth in Metropolitan Atlanta. Our program is designed to uplift troubled children/teens of single parent homes, parents with HIV/AIDS or other terminal illnesses. Children/teens who participate in our organization are more inclined to act out in negative ways because they are left without parental or spiritual guidance due to a parent(s) succumbing to terminal illnesses such as HIV/AIDS and Cancer. Our foundation encourages our youth participants to fulfill their dreams by providing charity services such as tutoring, mentorship, character development and HIV/AIDS education.
