The annual Shuzz Fashion show is quickly approaching and being that we have been fans ever since the first time we have covered the fashion-filled night, we have compiled a few reasons as to why you don’t want to miss this year’s show, which will be taking place at The Seminole Casino on March 12th at 7 p.m. with featured designers Veronica Beard.
1. Over-the-top fashion
From live performances to runways with jets as backdrops, everything about a Shuzz fashion show is over the top especially the style. Our first time attending the show we were wowed by Zac Posen’s latest collection of gowns as they glided down the runway. The organization has had our loyalty ever since.
2. A night filled with bubbly
General admission tickets include a cocktail reception that you don’t want to miss.
3. You get to give back in style
Proceeds from the show go directly back into providing children with shoes all over the world. So you can take comfort in the fact that as you enjoy a night of style and cocktails, you are giving to a worthy cause.
4. The record speaks for it self
In our opinion, there has never been a dull year. Each year appears to be better than the previous year. From an intimate affair at Jet Cafe to Mizner park to the latest confirmed location The Seminole Casino in Coconut Creek, everything from the venue to the amazing sponsors come together seamlessly to create a night you don’t want to forget.
5. Shuzz is an amazing organization taking on a worthy cause.
“SHUZZ (pronounced shoes) is a South Florida based non-profit organization that functions off of support from volunteers only, existing to provide new shoes to children in poverty-stricken areas around the world. We distribute thousands of shoes free of charge to children – regardless of race, religion, class or any other criteria – who are in need of a very basic tool to prevent them from risk. Their needs are simple: a pair of shoes that fit properly. This helps protect from injury and prevent disease, enhancing safety when playing, doing chores and going to school.
When Rita Lombardo founded the SHUZZ Fund, she made a promise that she would use 100 percent of public donations for shoe distribution projects. We find other ways to cover operating expenses to ensure our 100% Model. We depend on private donors, foundations and sponsors to cover staff salaries, basic office systems, office rent and supplies, etc. These donors are some of the most dedicated people we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Their investments fuel our long-term mission and our ability to scale as an organization, allowing us to remain true to our mission of using 100 percent of public donations for shoe projects.”
