Last Saturday I attened three events back to back to back. The first was a fashion show for Geri's Heart/Sweet Hattitude's Annual fashion show for cancer awareness. It was held atthe Lane Tabernacle Church on North Newstead in St. Louis. I promised the event's coordinator Roxanna Parker that I would help her on the male mdoels since my TESTOSOCOUTURE (which was benefitting her organziatuion Geri's Heart)in May.
Beforr I begin, I apologize for not getting all the info of the program because I was actually in the show and focused more on stage managing the show.
It was four male models: YOURS TRULY, Carlos McClaurin (who was in my play Monologues and Penisillin), Marshawn Watson (who wa sin JEt Magazine), and Eddie Jones who is over his own Christian based organziation Convict and Convert.
The female models were breast cancer survivors.
I had to get the show together literally minutes before the show was to start, but I pulled it off where the male models,who modeled first, escorted the female models up and down the steps as they modeled. We all modeled stylish hats (Ours came from Levine's).
Missouri Black Expo's Tom Bailey addressed the crowd about cancer awarness.
Overall the event was nice. An intimate setting. The food was good (salad and beef lasagna) and a strange beverage that was served --tea and orange juice ("teorange" juice, I guess) but it was an interesting blend.
It was over about 3oclock (it started about 2) and onto the next event: Local comedian Jessie Taylor's wedding and reception at Light on Broadway in baden.
