A Fashion Fundraiser at FLIBS for Hurricane Ian
by Gemma Harris
This year’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show sees a Fashion Show Fundraiser hosted by South Florida ventures; Informa Markets, Professional Women in Yachting, a 501 (c)(3) (PWY), a non-profit organisation and the founder of Nautic Nomad & Creative Director of Bravo X Romeo on the 29th October. The fundraiser event with a Resort Wear theme will be onboard the iconic and unique ‘Yacht Mansion’ from 6 pm Saturday, with canapés from Silverlining Catering and beverages sponsored by Yacht Chandlers.
With the help of sponsors and the $100 VIP ticket price, this show will raise money for the victims of Hurricane Ian. As one of the strongest hurricanes to hit the US, it has caused fatalities, catastrophic damage, and mass displacement. The contributions of this event will help continue to support the on-the-ground efforts made by PWY in bringing aid to our neighbouring West Coast.
“My heart truly breaks for the West Coast. With the help of PWY & our partners we aim to help restore hope and opportunity to our neighboring Floridians. Holding a fashion show to benefit natural disaster relief with Bravo X Romeo, who’s clothing collection is inspired by the beauty of nature is poetic justice as to how powerful nature is in our lives.” - Samantha Moore, the founder of PWY
“I wanted to do something with my skills and network to raise awareness and funds to help out our Floridian neighbors on the West Coast. It’s just chance that we didn’t end up in the same situation as they did over here in Fort Lauderdale, so I wanted to show solidarity. As an immigrant myself to America, one thing that has always endeared me to this country is that no matter the background, the American spirit is one of helping each other in times of disaster.” - Randi Barry, founder of Nautic Nomad & Creative Director of Bravo X Romeo.This event would not be possible without our sponsors.
