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 Â Ebony Steele of Foxâ€™s Dish Nation and nationally syndicated Rickey Smiley Morning Show.Â 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 BurressÂ (RHOA)Â Â 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.Â Attendees also received delectable tastings from Cake CafÃ© Atlanta, Edible Arrangements (Lithonia) and Vita Coco Water while Center for Black Womenâ€™s Wellness distributed materials about health and wellness.
Posing above is the fabulous Ariana DavisÂ (LHHA)Â and Shay “Buckeey” Johnson (LHHA) showing support with a hint of Pink Pride.
As the fly-est woman in the room,Â Ebony Steele(Hot 107.9) reviews a few key things whileÂ Porsha Williams-StewartÂ (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 MTVâ€™s Collizion Crew (ABDC), Brooke â€œViosocalist: Alford, and Cash Out while live painter, Janssen Robinson (NOW Painting) captured the evening via canvas.Featured apparel brands in this yearâ€™s runway show were DTLR, Sweet Spot Apparel, Threadz Boutique, D&K Suit City, Kickboard Kouture Apparel House and Lee Gregory Underwear.

Porsha Williams-StewartÂ (RHOA) not only looks phenomenal, but she also has a great sense of style that Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â woo’d us from beginning to end.
Being able to share some quality time with the little sis at such a phenomenal event is what earnedÂ Anthony Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Que, (formerly of Day 26) some brownie points.
