Charitable Event Raises Money While Touching Lives

Saturday, December 4th was a big day for Steve Edwards, Founder of the International House of Fedoras. Mr. Edwards coordinated a beautiful fashion show and album release not just to showcase the great talent coming out of Birmingham, Alabama, but to raise funds for causes that are near and dear to his heart. He appropriately titled the event ‘Touching Lives With the Runway’. Beneficiaries of Steve’s tireless efforts included the Lupus Organization, Homeless Veterans and Kidney Cancer Research. The event was held at Old Car Heaven which houses classic car favorites and a bar/ lounge area to suit anyone looking for a great spot to hang and relax.

Shaundra Performing

Supporters of the cause enjoyed a dinner buffet while listening to Shaundra T. Smith perform songs off of her new album titled ‘Worth Repeating’. High Quality Organics (HqO) Skin Care donated men’s and women’s gift bags to several surprised guests. The models ripped the runway with designs by YODE, International House of Fedoras (IHOF), Mak Designs and MOJO Jeans. Make-up artist Shelly Theus had the models looking glamorous and a team of photographers were there to capture it all. Aspire Online Magazine had the opportunity to debut our print edition featuring Shaundra. Congratulations to Steve and his crew on a job well done!
