Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) March 31, 2010
RBM of Atlanta-North, a Mercedes-Benz dealership located in Alpharetta, GA, joined one of their customers, Curtis Lofton of the Atlanta Falcons, the Rally Foundation, and several others to put on a very special fashion show to raise funds for childhood cancer research.
Topping off an evening of a live and silent auction, delicious food from top area restaurants, and private shopping was a very special fashion show featuring, as models, young children battling cancer.
According to RBM of Atlanta-North General Manager Randy Powell, the fashion show was much more than the introduction of the latest trends. “For these kids, the opportunity to walk down the runway along with professional models is a memory of a lifetime. These children truly redefine style and beauty, and the look of joy on their faces made the evening memorable for the hundreds of people who attended the event."
Proceeds from Fashion Funds the Cure directly benefit children battling cancer at Aflac Cancer Center & Blood Disorders Service of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research and Pediatric Cancer Foundation helps fund cutting-edge research and clinical trials.
RBM of Atlanta-North supplied a fleet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles as part of a day of pampering the young runway stars. Added Mr. Powell, “We know how important and fun this event was for the kids and their families, and wanted to give them the star treatment they truly deserve. It was an absolute privilege to be a part of this very special evening and we are extremely pleased that it was such a success for everyone who participated in the event.”
