March 3, 2012- Philadelphia will be a part of history again in the world of fashion. The One Night Only Gala will be taking place to celebrate the beginning of the 17…Days of Fashion as an official non-profit organization that gives back to the community by way of fashionable events throughout the city of Brother Love.
The creator, Anthony Henderson, is very excited about what the events have to offer. “Philadelphia is my hometown and has been a blessing to me and I want to be a blessing to my city and the people that make it so wonderful.”
“The idea of the 17… Days of Fashion is to support and celebrate Philadelphia’s endless talent in the fashion industry and also to draw people’s attention to the need to give back,” says Anthony. “There are so many people in the city that can use the support that we as a fashion community have to offer, and use our support to make the best of their lives and make this city, the place to be!”
The One Night Only Gala will be a cocktail reception that will take place at the View, located at 800 N. Broad Street in Philadelphia, PA and will also be a night that some of Philadelphia’s fashion forward contributors will be acknowledged and honored for their hard works.
The honorees include: Kharisma McIlwaine of CW Philly, Jenice Armstrong, journalist for Philadelphia Daily Newspaper, Lori Wilson, Anchorwoman of NBC 10, Sharon Phillips Waxman, President of SPW Production, Julie Wilch, Fashion Event Coordinator, and Tweety Elitou, fashion blogger and teen stylist, for the teen fashion blog, “Young, Hip and Chic”.
“I am very pleased to be acknowledged for the work that I have done, but I know that this is just the beginning, and I have so much more to offer my readers and my community,” says Tweety Elitou. “I definitely plan to use my recognition to bring awareness to my mission that is to help young women and men achieve their goals in education, and support my community through the art of positive expression.”
Those that are interested in attending the event can purchase tickets online at: urbantix.com/onenightonly and the cost is $100.
“I will tell you this,” says Anthony smiling from ear to ear. “The One Night Only Gala, I promise you, will be an event that you will never forget!”
