Join Roots of Development on Monday, November 12th, from 6:30pm until 9pm at Washington DC’s Studio Theatre for The Heart of Haiti, a community-inspired fashion event and gala to benefit our work in Haiti.
Guests will enjoy complimentary beer and wine as they browse our design competition finalists, silent auction items, and Roots store. Our fashion show will highlight designs from our recent Designs for Development competition with outfits styled by local boutiques. Guests will choose the winners of the first place $1,000 prize and runner-up $500 prize in the “Pep La” category (Haitian Creole for “The People”) by voting for their favorite designs. Awards will be announced toward the end of the night.
NBC Washington’s Wendy Rieger will serve as MC for the night with media coverage by DC Modern Luxury and DC Hot Spots. If you already have your tickets, head over to Facebook and share our event with your friends and family!
