On Saturday, July 16, 2016, Hamilton’s Heart Foundation will host its first annual Heart for Fashion fashion show and charity event. Pacific Sotheby’s Realty agent Rod Watson is chairing the event which will raise funds to help provide healthcare services to children in need from all over the county.
Hamilton’s Heart Foundation is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to leverage the celebrity status of professional athletes to impact positive change in their communities. Proceeds from this event will benefit both the Hamilton’s Heart Foundation and Rady’s Children’s Hospital.
“It is an honor to serve and donate my time to the Hamilton’s Heart Foundation. When I was a kid I suffered from asthma and spent a lot of time in the hospital. It was really hard growing up being teased about my condition and unable to participate in sports like other kids,” says Watson. “There are thousands of families who can not afford necessary medical attention for their kids and through the work of the Hamilton’s Heart Foundation we are able to offer support to help so many children in need.”
The event will allow disabled children from across San Diego to walk the runway as models. Many of these children have dreamed of modeling, but have been prevented from doing so because of their disabilities. “The fashion show is an opportunity to show children what real beauty looks like. We hope to make them feel as cherished and beautiful as they are,” said Lynell Hamilton, the founder of Hamilton’s Heart Foundation.
