The 4th Annual “Celebrity Men Fashion Event”
By Erika Muscat
Thursday, May 9, 2019 is an event you are not going to want to miss attending! The 4th annual “Celebrity Men Fashion Event” benefitting The Kidney Foundation of Canada is going to be a smashing hit this year with 14 new smiling faces hitting the runway.
The evening starts off at 6:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres — this year, chefs from Bacchus Ristorante will be pleasing your palettes with divine creations. There will be an opportunity to mix and mingle with the models and bid on some fantastic auction prizes. New this year, sponsored by Biz X magazine and provided by Presidential Productions, there will be a Magic Mirror. Practice those poses ladies!
The fashion show begins at 8 p.m. against the breathtaking backdrop at Water’s Edge Event Centre, 2879 Riverside Drive East, Windsor. The 14 men don fashions from Caché Boutique, Collins Clothiers, The Running Factory and The Suit Shop Co Ltd.
Will you get a rose from one of the handsome men? Treat yourself to front row seats with the VIP option for $85 to enjoy reserved seating, two drinks and wait service during the show. General admission tickets are $60. All tickets can be purchased online. Here you can also look at some photos from last year’s spectacular event. Always full of surprises, who know what the men may have up their sleeves for the 2019 show!
This year models walking the runaway are: Jay Marchillo, Mix 96.7; Gary Archibald, Meterologist CTV News Windsor; Rob Gyori, Impact Staffing; Frank Abbruzzese, AlphaKOR; Brent Vicary, RN Renal Department Windsor Regional Hospital; Asaph Maurer, Artist; Mike Graber, RN Renal Department Windsor Regional Hospital; Dale Harvie, Constable, Windsor Police Service; Tom O’Brien, Coopers Hawk Vineyards; Peter Savoni, Professor, Odette School of Business; Mark Dudfield, Better Blinds and Drapery; Eric Skene, Body by Synergy; Dan Patterson, WKND Hospitality Group and Scott Martindale, Martindale Windows.
Of course the night wouldn’t be complete without the comedic antics of the emcees. Michelle Mainwaring, a local actress who is known for her improvisation skills and edgy humour, is back for her fourth year, this time with Mix 96.7’s Phat Matt as her co-emcee.
The “Celebrity Men Fashion Event” is definitely a one-of-a-kind event in Windsor Essex and a wonderful opportunity for a guilt-free night-out with your gal pals, all in the name of charity. Falling just before Mother’s Day weekend, you can make it a special and unique experience you can share with the mother figures in your life! This event is fitting for all ages and has something for everyone.
Most importantly, it is all for a good cause. The goal is to raise $25,000 at this year’s fashion show!
A diagnosis of kidney failure is life-altering for many. The Kidney Foundation of Canada supports over 300 local patients who are on dialysis, as well as their caregivers and the many more being followed by kidney specialists for a variety of kidney-related issues. There is no cure for kidney disease, so the Foundation continues to fund important research, having contributed over $123 million to dozens of research projects to date.
The “Celebrity Men Fashion Event” is sponsored and supported by: Bacchus Ristorante, Biz X magazine, Cooper’s Hawk Vineyards Winery, Elev8 Productions, Janssen, Men in Kilts, Milestone Studios, Mix 96.7 FM, Presidential Productions, Rob & Deb Armitage of Re/Max Preferred Realty, Southwestern Manufacturing Inc. and Water’s Edge Event Centre.
