Beverly Hills, CA (PressExposure) May 16, 2011 -- Local and national fashion designers will unite for a charitable cause with the F.A.M.E Los Angeles and LA Fashion Corner's "Project AIDS and Cancer" Dinner and Fashion Show. This unprecedented fashion event will take place on Thursday, May 26th, 2011 inside Athenea Night Club and Restaurant, 14755 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, CA 91403. The event will raise funds, awareness and remembrance to the millions of lives lost to the disease, draw attention to the needs of millions more living with HIV/AIDS, and renew commitments made to tackle the epidemic. Though many designers have supported their individual causes in the past, this event marks the first time so many designers have banded together in the name of one cause.
AIDS has already claimed the lives of more than 25 million people throughout the world, while an estimated 33.2 million live with HIV - alarming numbers highlighting the need to remain vigilant. It is one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history. The F.A.M.E Los Angeles and LA Fashion Corner's "Project AIDS and Cancer" Dinner and Fashion Show is one of many efforts to spread common messages on prevention and increasing the awareness and knowledge about HIV/AIDS among our citizens.
Presented by F.A.M.E Los Angeles and LA Fashion Corner co-sponsored by Athenea Restaurant, Lousine Karibian and Celebrity Nightlife Publicity, Inc., this star-studded fashion show is set to cap off the Memorial Day Weekend by showcasing some of the country's most exciting new fashion designers. The fashion industry's top models, wardrobe stylists and hair and make-up artists have donated their time and talent to the cause.
"Each quarter LA Fashion Corner continues to work to help make a difference in the community," says London Moore, President/CEO of LA Fashion Corner, Inc. "Through our fashion shows alone we have raised thousands of dollars for HIV/AIDS research, domestic violence and financial support for needy children. We anticipate a huge turnout for this event and fully expect LA Fashion Corner 2011 to go beyond its inception year. The support for our previous LA Fashion Corner events has been immeasurable and only reinforces our belief that LA Fashion Corner will have the opportunity to continue to help to raise awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection."
The highly anticipated charity event will also feature a gourmet dinner, luxury fashion show, dancing, live performances, red carpet, exhibits, event reception and art showcases. The Opening Gala will kick off the event with a vendor's marketplace, silent auction, and cocktail reception.
