Philanthropic fashion lovers joined Holly Pellham Davis and daughter Landry at Tootsies for the 2014 Elisa Project Esteem Fashion Show in which mother-daughter duos took to the runway way for a special style presentation.
Attendees grabbed breakfast bites and beverages before taking their seats for the show coordinated by the one and only Rhonda Sargent Chambers. Brendan Higgins and Amy Vanderoef of WFAA’s Good Morning Texas served as emcees, while Tootsies’ Nerissa Von Helpenstill offered commentary.
Dallas families-turned-models included Shay Geyer with daughters Brooklyn and Jaylie, Blake Stephenson and daughter Cat, and Pam Skaggs Frank and daughter Bridget. A few sassy ladies — including LeeAnne Locken, Courtney Kerr, Dawn Belcher Neufeld and Hilary Kennedy — also took trips down the catwalk.
Post show, guests mingled and shopped, because 10 percent of all sales benefited the Elisa Project, an organization established in 1999 by Dallas residents Leslie and Rick McCall, in memory of their daughter Elisa. This organization is dedicated to the development of healthy children and adolescents by promoting the awareness and prevention of life-threatening disordered eating through education, support and advocacy.
