Lizz Russell Cocktail & Couture 2014
benefitting Support, Education, Research, Advocacy for Gillain-Barre Syndrome aka GBS
With the Westgate Hotel as the very elegant setting, the late evening was enhanced further by a fashionable group of supporters who came to see designer Lizz Russell's latest collection and support a cause dear to her life.
In Lizz's own words. "The Lizz Russell Cocktails & Couture shows present my belief that 'every woman should have her own style. Individuality and confidence are the pillars of The Lizz Russell Collection and it’s mission is to promote self-esteem, resilience, and ambition in all women. I believe in a philosophy of "living in the moment and dreaming big for the future, while looking and feeling GREAT! May is GBS/CIDP Awareness Month and every year," I hold my "fashion Show at The Westgate Hotel in San Diego."
As a 30-year GBS survivor, Lizz is a liaison for the San Diego Chapter and combines her desire to support both the fashion industry and the GBS/CIDP Foundation. “There is life after GBS,” says Lizz, “and each year’s program is especially designed to bring out the best of both worlds.”
Gorgeous fashion models walk the runway and guests dine on signature hor d'oeuvres and cocktails made by The Westgate Hotel's award-winning Chef Fabrice Hardel. A portion of the proceeds are donated to the GBS/CIDP Foundation International San Diego Chapter.
About Gillain-Barre Syndrome - an inflammatory disorder of the peripheral nerves, and those outide the brain and spinal cord, GBS typically "is characterized by the rapid onset of weakness and often paralysis of the legs, arms, breathing muscles and face."
The GBS / CIDP Foundation International is focused on providing a network for all patients, families and caregivers, as well as educating, and expanding the foundation's role in research and patient advocacy.
Bravo to Lizz Russell and the supporters of this evening!
