Fashion Forward for Fanatical Change Recap

On April 30, Fast Forward, the Intown Chamber Young Professionals, held Fashion Forward, an event which benefitted The Fanatical Change Foundation.  Attendees enjoyed a plethora of hors d'oeuvres, cocktails and music, while overlooking the beautiful Houston evening from the seamless windows of the event's venue, The Mosaic.  Guests were given plenty of time to enjoy their food and browse the silent auction before the start of the fashion show.  Auction items included everything from a book about Hurricane Katrina to a manicure at a local spa to a wine party for 10.  The event's main attraction began about halfway through the evening with a variety of young models strutting across the platform in business attire provided by Anthropologie and Jos A. Bank.
It wasn't until after the fashion show, however, that the most exciting and poignant subject was introduced.  At this time, Steven Kaufman, the President of The Fanatical Change Foundation, approached the audience with a Fanatical-Change-focused presentation filled with passion and promise.  In his presentation, Steven spoke about the devastating tragedies which befell the families who were assisted by the proceeds from Fanatical Change's Keep the Change Event, held in March.  He followed this by describing the uplifting and emotionally-charged memory of the moment in which the Fanatical Change volunteers got to personally deliver the gifts to the families.  This short introduction alone, inspired several individuals and a few representatives to join our cause in making a fanatical change in the lives of local Houstonians no different from you and me!
Thank you to the Intown Chamber of Commerce and everyone who attended the Fashion Forward Fashion Show for supporting The Fanatical Change Foundation!

Fanatical Change Month: April 2009

Young charitable organizations struggle to earn credibility.  Many donors  are willing to give time and money but are cautious with whom they             associate their name.  That is why it is such a momentous event for                Fanatical Change Foundation that our mayor, Bill White, proclaimed April 2009 Fanatical Change Month.  Not many other things could lend or give  our young charitable organization such credibility.
Thank you Mayor White and the City of Houston for proclaiming April       2009 Fanatical Change Month! And thank you for believing in Fanatical   Change and its mission!!  We are very honored by this proclamation.
