The Philadelphia Fashion Consortium (PFC) and 17…Days of Fashion held their third annual One Night Only Cocktail Reception and Fundraiser on Friday, June 6, 2014 at Restaurant Thirteen inside of the Marriott Hotel located in center city. The annual fundraiser supports 17…Days of Fashion (which offers over 21 events in 17 days) and Full Figured Style Week. A portion of the profits from both events are donated to charitable causes and entities such as Jaden’s Voice, a non-profit organization that services autistic children and their families.
Philadelphia stakeholders in the fashion, media and non-profit sectors enjoyed cocktails, food, a presentation of the fashion collection “Ayo Lee” by Joy Lee, and an awards ceremony. This year’s honorees included:
Anthony Henderson, celebrity stylist and 17…Days of Fashion executive director, presented the awards with a personal thank you for their work and support. The One Night Only honorees are selected based on the demonstration of their commitment and dedication to impacting the fashion and charity communities in Philadelphia via their respective realms of influence. Past honorees have included Philadelphia Daily News Journalist Jenice Armstrong, Fox 29 and Good Day Philadelphia Co-Host Mike Jerrick, Media Personality Kharisma McIlwaine, NBC 10 News Anchor Lori Wilson as well as several others.
