Inside The Walk The Woodlands – A Black Tie Fashion Affair
It was an electric evening on Saturday, August 26th, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center where over 600 guests were welcomed, dressed in bright colors and chic attire for the second annual The Walk The Woodlands. The fashion for a cause event presented by Kingdom Investment Holdings, LLC and Private Luxe Travel benefited Interfaith of The Woodlands, raising over $520,000 for the neighbors of South Montgomery County.
“The Walk event was created in the spirit of Interfaith; bringing people together, in the name of service to raise critical funds to help families and Seniors remain self-sufficient,” said Missy Herndon, President & CEO, Interfaith of The Woodlands. “We are so grateful to our community for their unwavering support of our neighbors by supporting this very fun and worthy event!”
Saks Fifth Avenue headlined the New York Style Runway Fashion Show that was creatively led by fashion show producer, Lenny Matuszewski. Guests also lined up on both sides of the runway to cheer and celebrate this year’s eight Community Champions in the Runway Finale, each of which have a heart for this community: Will Bonilla, Erin Doré, George Lindahl, Michelle Little, Julie Mayrant, Heather Sanford, Chef Austin Simmons and Tony Torres.
The Walk’s one-of-a-kind After Party was headlined by DJ LeRon The Don. Guests were wowed with fun props, a 360-degree photo booth and more! Co-chaired by Carrie Greenberg and Kristen Byrnes, their vision came to life for this year’s event, including the first Best Dressed Competition, that they also won, and raised over $30,000 dollars for Interfaith Food Pantry. All event proceeds from the event funds Interfaith’s vital community programs.
