I don't think there are enough words known to man that can express my love of giving back and or recognizing those that most overlook. And to see others doing the same is such an inspiration! The info below is not only an invite to attend but just reading the info/mission SHOULD inspire you in some type of way...I'm hoping! DMWTS salutes ALL involved for STAYING FAR FROM AVERAGE!:
New Faces of Fashion Photo Exhibit
On Saturday, March 19, 2011, Father’s Joy will partner with local Sugar Land photographer, Tonya Dailey (http://www.tonyadailey.com/), for a Down syndrome awareness photo exhibit entitled “The New faces of Fashion” to be held at Momentum BMW, 15865 Katy Freeway, Houston.
Ms. Dailey is offering her time and talent to increase awareness and support of people with Down syndrome. She will photograph 16 models of various ages who have Down syndrome. Her work will be displayed at Momentum BMW beginning at 2:00 p.m. Ms. Dailey hopes her images will capture the beauty of people with Down syndrome, inside and out. She also hopes her work will change perceptions within the fashion/modeling industry.
There will be several media outlets covering the show, which will offer food, drinks, and a host of fun activities for families! Father’s Joy will be present raising money for our various programs and offering educational information for all who attend. Please come out on March 19 and support Father’s Joy, Tonya and your family and friends with Down syndrome
