Recap: Lady 12 Fashion Show

On Friday, September 25, 2015, I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Lady 12 Fashion Show, held at Stadium Place’s Nolo Building rooftop.  It was a majestic evening, all to benefit The 12 Foundation.

The 12 Foundation partners with current and former Seattle Seahawks players, 12th Foundation Ambassadors, to bring once in a lifetime experiences to deserving families and children in a time of need.

“Since the inception of the brand I have watched how everything they create not only brings the community together, but always focuses on helping others in need,” said show producer, Tiffany Brown.  “I have never met people with as much integrity and kindness and it’s a privilege to work with them.”

With downtown Seattle skyscrapers, CenturyLink Field and the Puget Sound as the backdrop, Seattle celebs walked the runway wearing Seahawks’ tight end, Luke Willson’s clothing line, Stormtech, “Let’s Work!”

After the runway show, Willson graciously met and greeted all of his fans and took pictures with each one.  He is definitely a class act on and off the field!

Hundreds of guests were treated to the sounds of Pacific Northwest native, Michael Wansley, aka Wanz, as he treated the crowd to Thrift Shop and songs from Wander.  I had the opportunity to meet him and help him out with a few things, and he could not have been nicer.  His music had such a positive message and his voice was so soothing.  I look forward to seeing him perform again.
