If you have a passion for fashion then listen up. Put on your cocktail attire and head to Cloudland on Friday 16 August 2013 for a night of killer fashion, delightful bubbly, delectable canapés and awesome music.
Starting at 7pm in the stunning Rainbow Room at Couldland, the first ever Catwalk to Compassion will take place raising the much needed funds for children in West Africa. Facing shocking conditions in their daily lives, over 6000 children under five years old die each day due to the unavailability of rudimentary sanitation and hygiene.
Established by Queensland University of Technology student, Jacqui Toumbas, this event will showcase the latest trend in the world of fashion featuring clothing from Teal & Tala and Red Square.
Jacqui is not your regular Gen Y uni student. Rather than Facebooking, Instagramming and Twittering, she is fundraising, volunteering and raffling. More precisely, she is spending her weekends to fundraise by means of community raffles and volunteer work for Paradise Kids 4 Africa (PK4A) organisaion. Determined to change the world, Jacqui is hoping that there will be others like just her who will be inspired to take action. Her goal is to make Catwalk to Compassion an annual event in order to encourage other Gen Ys that they can do the same.
Funds raised from this awesome event go to a new toilet block, a clinic and hand-washing bays in Syke Street School situated in the heart of Freetown in Sierra Leone. Tickets are $60 per person which includes a bubbly on arrival and canapés throughout the evening. Tickets are limited and must be pre-purchased from Teal & Tala or PK4A so get in early to avoid disappointment. 100% of all funds raised go directly to the work of PK4A.
With a night of fun, food, music and fashion at the very posh Cloudland, there is no other way to spend your Friday evening.
