Purpose Project's Fashion Week Fundraiser Benefits Long Beach Area Families

LONG BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - January 11, 2014) - Saturday, February 22, 5:30 pm, the Purpose Project is hosting Fashion Week Long Beach at El Dorado Golf Club showcasing local fashion artists to raise funds for families who have experienced financial hardship from battling cancer. This black tie event is organized by Long Beach's own Tithing Closet and will be hosted by NFL veteran Oscar McBride. Proceeds will benefit families selected by Junior Foundation Charities.

  • Typically, fashion week is a fashion industry event, lasting approximately one week, which allows fashion designers, brands or "houses" to display their latest collections in runway shows for buyers and the media to see the latest trends. 
  • The Tithing Closet will utilize the fashion week concept to raise funds to benefit local area families and help to cover medical expenses, burial costs, and expenses associated with day-to-day living. 
  • This is an opportunity for community leaders, businesses, and community members to pay tribute to these families and assist them in their time of critical hardship.

The Purpose Project is seeking corporate sponsorships and donations to support this event. Tickets are on sale for the event. For more information go to, call (562) 277-1401, or email [email protected].
