Runway Moms for a Cause

L~Shandi Presents "Runway Moms for a Cause" hosted by Maureen Umeh of Fox DC!

"Runway Moms for a Cause" (RMFAC) is an impactful intersection of philanthropy and fashion at its best. RMFC is a runway show for philanthropists to take a stance on an often overlooked issue, and lend a helping hand towards a solution. The inaugural black-tie event will focus on influential Washington, DC mothers raising funds for orphans through the United for Kids Foundation (UKF) - a nonprofit committed to fighting poverty and illiteracy through education and social welfare programs in Nigeria. RMFAC is recognized by the Embassy of Nigeria as a prelude to the Nigerian Independence Day celebrations.

Participating mothers will be adorned in one of a kind designs by L-Shandi and guests will partake in a silent auction featuring original artwork, sent from Nigeria, by the benefitting orphans depicting their life goals and dreams.
