IWFW Makes A “Fruit-filled” Donation to Local Children’s Home

IWFW Makes A “Fruit-filled” Donation to Local Children’s Home

10/19/2010 10:22:07 AM

Nassau, Bahamas: On Thursday 14th October, 2010, the inclement weather placed a halt on the CD launch party planned by Mode Îsles Ltd, producers of “Islands of The World Fashion Week”. The unexpected rain however, proved to be a blessing in disguise, as it became the inspiration behind a generous donation of hors d'oeuvres donated to the Bahamas Children’s Emergency Hostel on Saturday, October 16, 2010. In preparation for one of the most anticipated events of the IWFW 2010 calendar, organizers were forced to postpone the launch of the “IWFW CD Vol.1”; the official runway music to be used in the “Islands of the World Fashion Week” international television debut. Mr. Kedar Clarke, Operations Manager of Mode Îsles Ltd, applauds the Bahamas Children’s Emergency Hostel for being gracious recipients of the gourmet treats and says charities like the hostel make the greatest statements through its commitment to youth and humanitarian efforts.

I’m glad to see that the postponement wasn’t a bad thing after all. Here I am enjoying the company of “fashion’s future”, while they too are grateful for what we’ve brought to them”, says Clarke.

 

Eager to share with the first-time visitors, Ms. Campbell, one of three Home advisors present for the donation, say guests are always welcomed as the children appreciate gifts just as much as they do friendly visits from individual groups and larger organizations throughout the Bahamian community. “At the Home we are appreciative for all forms of community support and outreach”. She added, “Words of gratitude can’t express our appreciation toward IWFW and its organizers, who have through small donations and fellowship, planted their seeds with the hostel which we hope will be the beginning of a lasting and fruitful relationship between Islands of The World Fashion Week and The Bahamas Children’s Emergency Hostel—Thank you”.

The Islands of The World CD Launch Party will be held on its new date- Thursday, October 21, at the Bambu Night lounge, downtown Nassau at 8 p.m.
