Please join me on Sunday April 26, 2009 from 3 to 6 p.m. at LeftBank as I strut the platform when the The Dunes present the Fashion, Accessories and Art of "Artistic Aya", Dana Ayanna Greaves, a tremendously talented DC-based designer and artist.

This event will benefit Pediatric Aids/HIV Care, Inc., which tirelessly has been supporting young victims of HIV/AIDS in DC for over 20 years. In March of this year HIV/AIDS was classified as a "severe epidemic" in DC, with rates of infection exceeding those of many underdeveloped countries. As a result, the work of the Pediatric Aids/HIV Care is particularly invaluable to the Washington, DC community. Please come out to support an exceptional artist and organization, and to mingle with some truly creative and committed people.
