Another beautifully executed fashion show from Shannon Hardisty Productions!
With a VIP reception before the show, complete with a table of nothing but candy (which started to make sense when I realized the models out during the reception were wearing tops made of sweet goodness), the Wonderland Fashion Show benefiting the Make a Wish Foundation was a great success.
I’m really starting to enjoy the hustle and bustle energy flowing before fashion shows. And when the before-the-show fun is in a compact place it’s even better (we were in the bar area, just outside of the supper club room where the actual show was to take place). It’s like the energy has nowhere to go but bounce back and forth from one person to another. You have no choice but to be in the middle of it, absorbing the excitement and adrenaline.
The interior of the supper club was decorated for Christmas, with lights, presents, a huge toy soldier on the wall, gigantic disco balls, and the candy girls.
After a little dance music and some great people watching, the show began. Short dresses, long dresses, and designs for men – the Wonderland show had it all.
“We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.”
Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation’s mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation was founded in 1980 after a little boy named Chris Greicius realized his heartfelt wish to become a police officer. Since its humble beginnings, the organization has blossomed into a worldwide phenomenon, reaching more than 193,000 children around the world.
Although it has become one of the world’s most well-known charities, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has maintained the grassroots fulfillment of its mission.
A network of nearly 25,000 volunteers enable the Make-A-Wish Foundation to serve children with life-threatening medical conditions. Volunteers serve as wish granters, fundraisers, special events assistants and in numerous other capacities.
As the Foundation continues to mature, its mission will remain steadfast. Wish children of the past, present and future will have an opportunity to share the power of a wish®.
