Take Flight next Wednesday @ L2
I love a good fashion show. But I love it even more with my friends partake and walk the runway and show their designs. So join me next Wednesday for Fashion Takes Flight to support Luke's Wings.
You are cordially invited to "FASHION TAKES FLIGHT," a
fashion show to benefit Luke's Wings on Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at L2 Lounge.
Luke's Wings is an organization dedicated to the support of service members who have been wounded in battle. Recognizing the immediate need for families to be with their loved ones at such a difficult time, Luke’s Wings provides families with the means to visit during the service member’s hospitalization and rehabilitation. By purchasing travel agency services and travel tickets for loved ones, Luke’s Wings provides an immediate and invaluable service to the families of our men and women at arms while also helping to encourage and motivate the service member’s recovery.
Washington fashion takes flight as we salute our armed services and raise money to bring a little piece of home to the wounded while recuperating at military medical centers.
Local DCers, including Kate Marie Grinold- "Ms. DC," Paul Wharton, Tony Hudgins, Katherine Kennedy, Angie Goff, Redskins and former Redskins Cheerleaders and members of the armed services, will walk the runway in a one of a kind fashion event showcasing the spring and summer collections of Washington designers and boutiques.
Admission: $25 tax deductible donation if pre-purchased, or $35 if purchased at the door. The evening's events will include a silent auction, raffle, and a designer sale. Hors d'oeuvres and L2 drink specials will be served.
