New York, NY–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–January 29, 2004–How many people get a chance to own a handmade dress by a NY fashion designer? One lucky person – the highest bidder – will get the opportunity when CATALINA magazine kicks off its first silent auction to celebrate Latino designers during Fashion Week. The auction is part of the magazine’s V.I.P. event celebrating Latino designers and benefiting the Children’s Hope Foundation!
CATALINA is hosting the event in partnership with Hpnotiq, which is providing complementary Hpnotiq cocktails during the 3-hour V.I.P. event, from 6 to 9 p.m., at New York’s trendy Anju lounge, 36 East 20th Street (http://www.anjuny.com).
People’s Court Judge Marilyn Milian, CATALINA’s March/April cover model, will be the evening’s celebrity hostess, wearing a dress created for the event by Latino designer Edwing D’Angelo.
Latina fashion designer, Celina Guity designed and created a cotton, silk and leather dress (as seen here) specifically for the event’s silent auction (see attached image). All of the auction proceeds will go to Children’s Hope Foundation, a volunteer driven organization which improves the quality of life for children, youth and their families affected by HIV and AIDS.
Invitees to the event include media, TV personalities, community leaders, models, and celebrities.
Interviews with celebrities and VIPs will be available on February 4, 2004. If you plan on covering and request interviews, please call Cindy at (212) 891-0433.
