It’s GOING DOWN on Saturday, November 17th! The CAMI Foundation presents….FASHIONISTA: A Fashion event and Fundraiser.

The Candace Anderson Mystery Illness (CAMI) Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing scholarships to students based on academic excellence and financial need in the metro Atlanta area. The CAMI Foundation is named in honor of Candace Anderson, a Georgia native, who in 2002 was diagnosed with a mystery illness. Before becoming completely incapacitated, Candace was determined to pursue her education at any cost despite her physical disability and her failing health.

The mission of the CAMI Foundation is to inspire others to value education the way Candace did. The foundation is dedicated to working with Georgia residents to continue their education beyond high school by helping them overcome economic challenges. Since 2007, we have awarded 15 college scholarships ranging from $250 to $1,000 to young people 17 to 24, based on need and academic achievement. And it is our goal to continue to award scholarships to deserving youth in the metro Atlanta area.

On November 17, 2012, we will host our fifth annual fundraising event – the CAMI Fashionista. We are excited this year to host this event because in addition to the annual scholarships we have traditionally awarded in the fall of each year through a rigorous application process, youth who participate in the CAMI Fashionista will have an opportunity to win a scholarship for Spring 2013 as well as other prizes.

We have an exciting program planned with great entertainment such as a live jazz/R&B band, a comedian, a DJ, a dance group and much more. The main event will be the FASHIONISTA fashion show displaying the fashion and modeling skills of our youth. We will also have free food, a silent auction and vendors for patrons to enjoy. Lastly, we have a few celebrity guests that will be in the building. From Bravo’s hit series, “Project Runway”, the Season 3 Winner, Mr. Mychael Knight will be a guest judge for the fashion show. Mr. Christopher “Deep” Henderson, Grammy Award Winning Songwriter and Producer (Jamie Foxx’s “Blame it”) will serve as a guest judge as well. Kedar Whittle, known from “One Tree Hill” and “Walking Dead” will serve as our guest MC.

As always, we will honor Candace, the inspiration for CAMI, as we celebrate her 30th birthday. You can also read more about Candace and the CAMI Foundation by going to camifoundation.com.

Thank you so much for your support. We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday for a great night of Fashion, Food and Fun! . :-)
