Save the Date: 4th Annual Fashion Touchdown with the Philadelphia Eagles (Nov. 13)

Posted in : Food, Drink and Restaurant on by : Tags: , ,

Each year, Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region throws a fashion-filled, Philadelphia Eagles-themed party to raise money for the organization. This year’s Fashion Touchdown will bring Eagles players and guests to the Ballroom at the Ben on Monday, November 13, for an evening of fashion and fundraising.

The night begins with a VIP reception from 5:30–6:30 p.m., with the main event unfolding at 6:30. Guests will enjoy three hours filled with libations from Stateside Vodka and Yards Brewing Company, light bites from Finley Catering and a fashion show. Eagles players will swap out their jerseys and helmets for suits and bow ties designed by Robbini Bespoke and walk the runway with their significant others, who will be modeling designs from iconic fashion designer Nicole Miller. Miller will also orchestrate the fashion show and make a special appearance at the event. Jason Matthew Salon and Lacquer Lounge will provide hair and makeup services for the evening.

Fashion Touchdown is presented by Marrone Law Firm, LLC, and FOX 29’s Good Day Philadelphia co-anchors Alex Holley and Mike Jerrick will emcee the fashion show.

This special fundraising event is presented to raise critical funds for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region youth mentoring programs in the Greater Philadelphia region and Burlington, Camden and Gloucester counties. The organization will use the raised funds to provide children facing adversity with strong, enduring, professionally supported one-to-one mentoring relationships that can change their lives for the better. Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region helped nearly 4,000 children last year; however, there is still more work to be done, and the organization is deeply passionate about removing young boys and girls from its waiting list of 1,200 children.

Tickets for Fashion Touchdown are available for $150 per person for general admission and $225 for VIP admission. General admission tickets include the cocktail reception, fashion show and entry into the event at 6:30 p.m. VIP ticketholders will receive one-hour early admission into the event at 5:30 p.m. and a VIP reception with the Philadelphia Eagles players, in addition to what the general admission guests will receive. Young professional general admission tickets are also available for $100 per person (ages 21–38).

Spend the evening of November 13 viewing the latest runway fashions, sipping vodka cocktails and brews and mingling with Philadelphia Eagles players for a great cause: to help the Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region!

Fashion Touchdown will be held at the Ballroom at the Ben, located at 834 Chestnut St. in Philadelphia; phone: (215) 627-5100.
