Garden City, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2012
The NAPW Dallas, TX Local Chapter hosted its first Fashion Show and Expo on October 18th in lieu of its monthly professional networking meeting. The event, which was held at The White Space, 2001 N. Lamar Street, Suite 500 in Dallas, was a huge success that attracted nearly 60 members and guests, many of whom hosted vendor booths. The fashion show was sponsored by Status Designs, Sarah Jones, Owner; Simply Positive Jewelry, Susan Mikkelsen Pielsticker, Owner; and Dave Kramer Photography, Dave Kramer, Owner. The event was open to the public.
The event was a great success as we had members that have never attended a single meeting come to enjoy the activities or host a vendor booth, said Chapter President Tisa Salazar. Many of our members are entrepreneurs and were looking to showcase their businesses, so this was the perfect venue!
Tisa opened the event by welcoming everyone, then briefly acknowledging the efforts of those who worked so hard to pull the event together. Deadra Marsh Foy worked with Sarah Jones to plan the Fashion Show. Models who volunteered (many of whom were NAPW members or their families) included Deanna Tipton, Cristi Campo, Kendra Campo, Allyson Henslee, Joanna Swanson, and Janie Bergamasco.
Local designer Sarah Jones introduced three styles within her clothing lines: fashionable work attire; presentable and stylish cocktail attire for meetings with clients; and fun and put-together looks for upcoming holiday parties. Many of her pieces were used multiple times showing the versatility of her line.
Simply Positive Jewelry was on hand to add that extra touch to the already polished look of the models who strutted down the runway.
Complimentary photography was also provided by Dave of Dave Kramer Photography, said Tisa.
Other photographers were on hand as well, creating a paparazzi feel as the girls exited the runway.
Prizes and giveaways were offered by several vendors. The lucky winners at the end of the night were Hannah May, with Arbonne and Tricia Moon with the Petya Edwards Foundation.
The White Space in Dallas, the location of the event, was perfect as the floor plan was accommodating for the flow of the fashion show but also provided all of the vendors the amenities they needed. Mary Denson, Vice President of Event Sales and Marketing, was on hand to make
sure the event went smoothly.
She and the entire team at White Space did an awesome job, said the Chapter President. I also thank all of our members and guests who helped make the Fashion Show and Expo such a great success!

About Guard A Heart
Guard A Heart is a non-profit foundation dedicated to raising awareness of heart disease prevention by spreading the word to guard your heart and save your life. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. If individuals know their risk and take the necessary steps, the good news is that most cardiovascular disease is preventable. Although heart disease is typically diagnosed in adulthood, its roots are often found in childhood. Compelling research has shown that plaque buildup in the arterial walls begins very early in life and progresses through increasing degrees of atherosclerosis. Intervention strategies and healthy lifestyle changes to reduce heart disease risk should begin in childhood when reversal of the process is easier, not later in life when the disease is more fully developed. Guard a Heart Foundation provides funding for individuals who are unable to pay for cardiac risk assessments. Please visit http://www.guardaheart.org for more information.

We are very excited to be able to offer a great research based program for our young children at risk for reading challenges, said Nancy Allard, MA, OTR/L, Director of The Luma Center. We work with many families who have one or more children with learning differences.

The Luma Center will offer screenings for BrightStart! October 4 and 6 to identify children who could benefit from the program. Lumas BrightStart! program will consist of 20 weeks of twice-weekly small-group sessions taught by an experienced early childhood teacher. The BrightStart! curriculum integrates classic childrens literature and music with fun, multisensory lesson materials. While creating and tracing gluey, gooey Gs to learn to recognize letter forms, listening to read-alouds, or engaging in creative movement activities, children learn critical concepts of oral language, print awareness, letter knowledge, phonological awareness and emergent writing.
More information about the BrightStart! screening and enrollment process is available at http://www.lumacenter.org.
