You are cordially invited to attend the first 2012 pre-event for the third annual Arts for Autism gala, benefitting individuals and families affected by Autism in Northern Virginia.
Saturday, February 25, 2012
8:00pm – 10:00pm
All attendees are asked to nominate one champion model for our runway fashion show set for the fall of 2012 at Clarendon Ballroom in Arlington.
We will distribute generous prizes for the first 10 male and female models nominated and randomly selected from our nomination bowl. The winners will be announced at the reception, with a photography session to follow.
To kick off this year’s Arts for Autism fund-raising, this event will feature unique cocktails named in honor of past runway models, a silent auction table, live auction of a grand prize, and photographs of last year’s beautiful gala on display. Dress code for girls is pretty cocktail attire in primary colors (red, blue, and yellow). Men are encouraged to dress up in stylish attire with black, gray, and/or white as the dress code colors.
Please plan to join us for what promises to be a festive and fashionable event. We ask for a $15 donation at the door from attendees, and thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
