SAVANNAH, Ga., April 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- High Style Events has announced a new, unique twist on fundraising for local charities. An entire day of wellness, shopping, dining, arts, music and fashion will be held on Thursday, April 23, at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Coastal Empire branch of the American Cancer Society.
An organization that was founded in 2013, High Style Events (previously Rock the Runway™) produces fundraisers for charitable organizations by taking a different approach from the traditional norm.
The event next week promises to "blend the old with the new" under the slogan "The New Classic" (#thenewclassic), mixing the classic style of one of our original 13 colonies with today's media hungry world. The premise of the event is to provide a full day of activities, allowing event-goers to immerse themselves in a 360-degree view of what it means to live life in "High Style."
From yoga classes in the morning to a runway show at night, the event will showcase a wide variety of experiences. "High Style is much more than the clothes on your back. It's meant to cater to all of your senses," said creator Kevin Cartee of Cartee Image Consultants. "This event is the first of its kind in Savannah. We are giving the audience a full day of health, beauty and balance."
Cartee and his team drew their inspiration from the struggle every cancer survivor goes through as they battle the disease. In the editorial shoot to promote the event, they feature a young model that is a Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor. Through the photographs, the creative team shows the different stages of acceptance and surrender that a cancer patient goes through while undergoing treatment.
"It is a privilege to be a voice for all those affected by cancer. I cannot express enough gratitude to High Style team for bringing my story to life." Ozma Niven – Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor and featured model for the HSS editorial shoot.
Coca-Cola, Barefoot Wine and Bubbly, Oribe Hair Care, and Derst Baking Co. are sponsors of the event, among others. The activities will be held at the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum of Savannah on April 23, starting at 9 a.m., with activities continuing into the night:
