Peek-A-Boo Couture Hosts Spring Fashion Show- Donates to St. Jude's
April 25, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Peek-A-Boo Couture Hosts Spring Fashion Show
Peek-A-Boo Couture is hosting the largest kid and teen fashion show held in North Carolina this May. Nearly fifty models will walk the runway at Mooresville High School and a portion of the proceeds will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Store owner Candace Khashman says her own battle with cancer motivated her to choose St. Jude’s as the charity for the event.
The theme for the show, Rockin’ the Runway, exemplifies Peek-A-Boo’s philosophy. “It’s going to be off the chain”, Khashman explains. “We are very excited about this event. All of the models participating are fantastic and the outfits they have chosen really show off each kid’s individual personality.” There are over sixty looks in the fashion show, worn by models ranging from ages 2 to 16. Couture Specialists from the boutique worked individually with each model to select the perfect outfits for the event.
Rockin’ the Runway is the second show in a month featuring Peek-A-Boo Couture collections. Child and teen models sported vintage inspired styles as they walked the runway last Saturday evening at the NC Music Factory for the Charlotte SEEN Passport for Fashion event. The show featured over ten one of a kind looks from Peek-A-Boo Couture’s collections.

Red Rider Classic in Memory of Brett Morgan
Brett Morgan was an avid cyclist, devoted husband and father and was deeply committed and passionate about helping others. He worked with many charities, and 24 Hours of Booty combined his love of cycling with his passion for making a difference. In January 2012, Brett was tragically killed while walking to work. At the time, he had envisioned and was making plans to hold a fundraising event for his 24 Hours of Booty team- Team Impact- at the newly opened Giordana velodrome in Rock Hill.
Brett had also become passionate about supporting a young girl fighting cancer, Isabella Santos. Isabella inspired Brett, as she had done others, by bravely fighting the disease in the face of long odds. Despite ultimately succumbing to her multi-year battle, the memory of Isabella Santos inspires us as well. Brett understood the ultimate price that some cancer victims and their families pay. Brett would want us to fight on and we shall.
Although the velodrome event did not come together in 2012, his family and friends donated to 24 Hours of Booty in his memory, making Brett one of the top fundraisers in 2012! Brett would have been so proud.
His team, family and friends are working hard to make Brett's vision a reality and a yearly tradition, beginning this year. Thus, the "Red Rider Classic in Memory of Brett Morgan" will take place at the Giordana velodrome on May 18, 2012, much as he had originally envisioned it. The name of the event celebrates Brett' s love of his alma mater, Texas Tech, the Red Raiders. This event will bring together his family, friends, teammates and the cycling community to celebrate his life while raising funds for a cause that meant so much to him.
