Philadelphia Eagles Players Trade Footballs for Fashion
Guess where I'm going!? Or better yet, who I'm going to be seeing in some of the latest trends on the runway! Oh just some of our very our Philadelphia Eagles players like long snapper Jon Dorenbos, linebacker Brandon Graham, free safety Malcolm Jenkins, placekicker Cody Parkey, defensive lineman Cedric Thornton, and quarterback Mark Sanchez!
Pretty awesome, right? Check out the press release below for all the details!
The 2nd Annual Fashion Touchdown will be on Monday, September 21. Our Philadelphia Eagles will be trading
footballs for fashion while participating in the fundraiser and fashion show at Vie (600 N. Broad St) benefiting
Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern PA (BBBSSEPA).
Kicking off with a VIP Reception at 5:30pm, the main event will begin at 6pm as players and their
significant others Carlyne Graham, Morrisa Jenkins, Colleen Rick, and Shakacia Thornton, strut the
catwalk to beats by DJ Eddie Tully. Doing double duty, Fox29 Good Day Philadelphia co-anchors Mike
Jerrick and Alex Holley will serve as both event emcees and models. Donning hairstyles dreamed up by
Jason Matthew Salon, the players, wives, and media personalities will showcase fashionable looks by
INTERMIX and Robbini Bespoke. Additionally, the men will be outfitted with bow-ties and pocket
squares from Jenkins’ line, Rock Avenue Bow Ties, and shoes from local men’s shoe retailer, ToBox.
Guests will enjoy cocktails and lite bites throughout the evening, while also browsing the pop-up shops
from The Divine Lorraine Hotel Collection, INTERMIX, Robbini Bespoke, Rock Avenue, and ToBox.
Fashion Touchdown, which raised $45,000 in its first year, is one of many outside-the-box events Zarwin
Baum hosts to raise money for organizations across the region. “Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern
PA is an organization that continues to make a tangible impact in our region,” said Mitchell Kaplan,
managing shareholder of Zarwin Baum. ‘As they celebrate 100 years of outreach, it’s the perfect
opportunity to express Zarwin Baum’s support for their mentorship of Philadelphia’s young people.’
I can't wait to go! See you guys there!
Tickets for ‘Fashion Touchdown’ can be purchased for $100 for General Admission and $175 for VIP.
