This Friday, DC's Shadow Room will be hosting the Fashion Forward Fashion Show, where professional football players, Redskins cheerleaders, Washington Wizards Girls and other local celebrities will be hitting the catwalk to raise money for Hoop Dreams scholarships. Hoop Dreams, which was also a documentary movie, is a D.C. scholarship program which has paired thousands of public school students with mentors and internships, helped them study for the SATs, and awarded more than 1,600 college scholarships.
"(If you've ever wanted to see Terrell Suggs model, here's your chance.) Tickets are $50 in advance ($60 at the door) and include two hours of open bar and passed hors d'oeuvres -- including cupcakes from Georgetown Cupcakes! -- as well as the chance to have your picture taken with Tyra Banks on the red carpet. Okay, it's courtesy of Madam Tussaud's, but your friends don't have to know that." In addition, guests will receive a complimentary gift bag from Metromixdc.com (first come first serve).
