The Show Me the Way Foundation and African Pride Dream Kids Hair Care are excited to welcome music royalty to the 2012 Runway Red: Safari Wonderland charity kids fashion show. The event is set to take place over ZOO Atlanta located at 800 Cherokee Avenue SE, Atlanta, GA 30315 at 7p.m. on Saturday, August 11, 2012. International superstar Akon’s sons will walk the runway along with the daughter of hip hop’s king of the south TI. Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield’s little one’s will participate and Chilli from TLC’s son will return for a repeat performance.
“I am always moved by the support from the celebrity community,” says Show Me the Way foundation executive director, Tashawnya Menefee. “We have worked with new celebrities every year and we also have some that have supported us again and again. I’m just thankful that they have a heart for our foundation and the children affected by HIV/AIDS that the foundation was created to assist.”
News of the upcoming celebrity kids fashion show has Atlanta buzzing after supermodel Cynthia Bailey (RHOA) hosted a model call on July 1st for additional talent to accompany the celebrity children in the show. Over three hundred children ages 5-18 came out to audition for the chance to strut alongside the offspring of some of their favorite celebrities. Menefee says she loves that the children participating are privy to an authentic production, and it has helped many of them find an inspiration to pursue modeling.
“We have Runway Red alumni doing major productions and getting booked for commercials and productions in NY, etc.,” she states proudly.
Celebrity confirmations continue rolling in as the Runway Red staff prepares for a major production in less than thirty days. Title sponsor African Pride Dream Kids Hair Care is excited at the momentum building in the city and looking forward to being a major part of the program this year.
“Our contribution has increased significantly since the last year and we have some surprises in store for the audience and of course the children participating this year,” says Charlene Bastien, Strength of Nature National Marketing Director/African Pride Dream Kids Hair Care. “This show is going to be one to remember and as a brand we want to continue to support the community we serve.”
