Biz X Was There – Sixth Anniversary Celebrity Men Fashion Event for The Kidney Foundation

The Kidney Foundation of Canada, Windsor and District, Celebrity Men Fashion Event took place Thursday, May 23, 2024 raising over $53,000 for the local chapter with 160 guests in attendance.

In addition to the fashion show, the evening included mixing and mingling, delicious hors d’oeuvres, raffles, a live and silent auction — and the famous opening of the wine chest! Lexa Monaco also sang an amazing selection of contemporary songs in the VIP section.

Hosts Michelle Mainwaring (Windsor actress) and Chris Byrne kept the crowd in stitches throughout the evening as did the models with their interesting dance moves (LOL!)

“I would like to thank everyone that has been involved in the Celebrity Men Fashion Event for making it so successful. Together, we raised funds to support the programs and services offered by The Kidney Foundation of Canada.”
