Strut for a Cure!

Last year I invited you all to a special fashion show my cousin and I hosted in Canada for a very worthy cause. Well you're all invited once more because we are doing it again!! Erika and I are proud to announce this years (now annual) "Strut for a cure." event.
Presented by the Coast-to-Coast Against Cancer Foundation on May 27th we are uniting fashionable Canadians to raise funds and awareness to fight pediatric cancer.

The idea for the first 'Strut for a cure' was born in 2009 when my 11 year old cousin Erika asked for my help to assist her in raising funds to help children with cancer. Now, 2010, Toronto welcomes the ‘Strut for a Cure’ event featuring my friends from Elite and I in a one-of-a-kind fashion show. One thousand guests will enjoy an evening of fashion, music, entertainment, cocktails, food and dancing! You'll be happy to know that 100% of the dollars raised will go toward improving the survival rate and quality of life of children and their families impacted by cancer.
Other guests attending include DJs: DJ Adrien Villanova, Paris & Saint-Tropez, DJ jojoflores, Gotsoul Montreal, Monk by Templar, DJ Keidy, Miami. Not only that but Fashion Telivisions Jeanne Beker will be Emcee for the evening!
If you would like to help out in any way, please go to www.strutforacure.com to see what you can do. Make sure to check out the contests we are throwing there as well.


Hope to see you all there!!!

XOXO

Coco, you're a cutie! :) I'm sure you guys will raise loads and touch many people's hearts. I wish I didn't live in small town Canada so that I could see it too. Good luck!

Hey there Coco! I have been a fan of fashion and of models since I was very little. My mom was never fashionable, but the intrigue struck my heart young and I've held it close for all these years. You are a beautiful model with a brilliant mind and a generous soul. I'm embarrassed to say that for a couple of years, my bad self image stole me away from my true happiness (fashion and models). It was only within the last couple of months that I came back with a fresh take on the industry. What changed all of that was your article "My Uncensored Point Of View". You grabbed a hold of my heart strings and pulled them with all of your might.

Even though I still have a negative self image, I can once again see the beauty in the industry. Fashion has re-captured some of its wonder, thanks to you! I wanted to personally thank you for giving me back my love and passion. You are indeed a shining, sparkling ray of light ... and will forever be one of my all-time favorite people in the industry. I sure wish that there were more like you :)

I hope you will do this event again next year...! I'm such a fan of you and Jeanne Becker, too... I wanted to go this year but I live in Ottawa and it would be expensive for me to pay the bus tickets and the tickets for the show. This is such a great event... And it's for a good cause. I love it. I'll come next year.

Thank you Coco, you're an inspiration. One day, I would like to be amodel... You really make me want to do this. :)

LF said...

Best of luck!

I'm coming to the event all the way from White Rock, B.C, not far from your hometown! Can't wait to see you on the runway and support the cause, as my cousin passed away a year ago from brain cancer. It's going to be an amazing fundraiser at a beautiful venue!
