Charity Fashion Show Event
Please join us & the 1MM team at this fashion event to help stop bullying. I hope to see you there! If you cannot join us, please consider donating to http://www.pacer.org/bullying/ or https://www.stjude.org/
This is a fashion show to support kids that are targets of bullying and to stop the suicide. Raising awareness against bullying has been something Vuli Ahmedi, a One Magnificent Model, has focused on for the last year. This is a perfect reminder for back to school season. It is heartbreaking to hear of a child committing suicide, especially because of something that can be prevented.
So, Vuli decided to have a fashion show to show those kids that we care while raising funds for Pacer's National Bullying Prevention Center, a non-profit organization, and St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, a hospital Vuli has been donating for a few years. Kids 12 and up are welcome. The entrance is free but donations will be appreciated.
Join the Children’s Research Fund Junior Board for an evening of cocktails, fun, & fashion modeled by the One Magnificent Model team!
The event will include an open bar, passed appetizers and a fashion show featuring the latest spring fashions for men and women. We hope to see you there for an unforgettable evening!

In the United States over 1.1 million people are living with the HIV virus. In 2006 there were almost 31,000 people in Illinois living with HIV; over 50% of them with a diagnosis of AIDS. Since the beginning of the epidemic over 590,000 have died from AIDS in the United States alone.
These numbers are alarming at best. In an effort to provide support for those affected, by this often devastating disease I am taking part in an annual event called, the Ride for AIDS Chicago. The Ride for AIDS Chicago is a two-day, 200-mile charity bicycling event from Illinois to Wisconsin that helps raise money for an AIDS service organization in Chicago called Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN). TPAN's mission is to empower and support those living with HIV and AIDS through peer-led programming, support services, and information dissemination.
You too can help me in making a difference in the lives of men, women, and children who are living with and are affected by HIV and AIDS. Show your support by making a fully tax-deductible donation to my Ride for AIDS Fundraising today. Every bit helps. Together, we can make a difference.
