Rock The Runway Benefits Food Bank And Toys For Tots

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Rock the Runway on Nov. 28, from 8 p.m.-1 a.m. at Rhythm and Brews is a Christmas fundraiser benefiting Toys for Tots and Chattanooga Area Food Bank Sack Lunch.  The Chattanooga Food Bank Sack Lunch program provides free lunches for kids at school, and also provides them with food to take home for the weekend so they are not hungry while not in school.

Toys for Tots benefits local military families and other families that are not in a position to make Christmas happen for their own children.

Some of Chattanooga’s musicians and entertainers have donated their time to perform and Rock the Runway.  Hundreds in giveaways have been donated as door prizes, ranging from gift certificates from Backstreet Bettys, spa services, restaurant gift certificates and more.

There is a $5 donation at the door, and each additional $5 buys another raffle ticket for door prizes.  No toys or food please, all money is split equally between the charities.

Fashion will be spotlighted throughout the night with roving models donned in latest fashions while collecting donations. Performing live will be local musicians; Jonathan Wimpee, Gabriel Newell and Jordan Halquist, Dan Pinson, Bexy Ribeiro, and more. The night will end with Guilty Pleasures Dance. 

To donate, but not able to attend, contact Backstreet Bettys Boutique at 755-8867.
