admin Oct 24 12 6 Comments

Hot Tomales is not even close to describing the spectacular event that took place last night. I attended one of my favorite homies and radio personality  Ebony Steele of Fox’s Dish Nation and nationally syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Show.  She celebrated her 5-year breast cancer survivorship with the Bare Chest for Breast Cancer Runway Show at 595 North Venue & Lounge with proceeds to benefit Susan G. Komen Circle of Promise. This was definitely the place to be where they “Bared” it all from showing support to awarding door prizes and even presenting an all Male Runway Show.

Prior to the show, celebrity attendees such as Kirk (LHHA), Mizz Shyneka (Hot 107.9), Resheeda (LHHA), Ebony Steele (Hot 107.9) and Kandi Burress (RHOA)  interacted in the African Pride Gifting Suite where luxury consumer and beauty brands, Jo Malone, Lamik Beauty, Infiniti of South Atlanta, I Heart Hair Inc, Spa Dental, e6 Energy and African Pride gifted products.  Attendees also received delectable tastings from Cake Café Atlanta, Edible Arrangements (Lithonia) and Vita Coco Water while Center for Black Women’s Wellness distributed materials about health and wellness.

Posing above is the fabulous Ariana Davis (LHHA) and Shay “Buckeey” Johnson (LHHA) showing support with a hint of Pink Pride.

As the fly-est woman in the room, Ebony Steele(Hot 107.9) reviews a few key things while Porsha Williams-Stewart (RHOA) expresses her personal passion behind supporting this event due to the fact that her father dealt with cancer as well.

The runway show featured with performances MTV’s Collizion Crew (ABDC), Brooke “Viosocalist: Alford, and Cash Out while live painter, Janssen Robinson (NOW Painting) captured the evening via canvas.Featured apparel brands in this year’s runway show were DTLR, Sweet Spot Apparel, Threadz Boutique, D&K Suit City, Kickboard Kouture Apparel House and Lee Gregory Underwear.


Mizz Shyneka (Hot107.9), Ebony Steele(Hot 107.9), Beyonce Alowishus, and Darlene McCoy take a                         moment to smile for the camera with style.
