Football Meets Fashion at Fashion Touchdown 2018
It’s that time of the year…Fashion Touchdown is here! We are always excited to attend this prestigious fundraiser hosted by Marrone Law Firm in Philadelphia. We remember this event when it was held at Vie on Broad Street! Now in its fourth year, Fashion Touchdown 2018 will be held at the Filmore Philadelphia on Monday, November 5, 2018.
Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles will rip the runway for a good cause and to support Big Brothers Big Sister. The lineup includes Rodney McLeod, Malcolm Jenkins, Zach Ertz, Jason Kelce, Brandon Graham, Chris Maragos, Jordan Hicks, Jalen Mills, and former Eagles’ Brent Celek and Todd Herremans.
Started in 2014, Fashion Touchdown has become one of Philadelphia’s biggest philanthropic events, featuring players from the Philadelphia Eagles and their wives modeling collections from Nicole Miller. In a night of fashion and football, the Eagles walk the runway in the latest looks, followed by a live auction to win their jerseys and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Past winners have enjoyed a private tour of Nicole Miller’s New York studio and dinner with Philadelphia Eagles player Brent Celek.
Last year’s sold-out event raised $360,000, a record-breaking amount due in part to the generosity of both attendees and sponsors. In addition to Marrone Law Firm, LLC, this year’s main sponsors include Live Nation, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and AmerisourceBergen. Returning runway fashion show partners include internationally-acclaimed designer, Nicole Miller, and ToBox Shoes. New this year will be Damari Savile, a men’s fashion line from Philadelphia Eagles player Malcolm Jenkins.
The event has a special meaning for Joseph M. Marrone, Esquire, founding partner of Marrone Law Firm, LLC. Marrone is a member of the Governing Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region and a former Big Brother himself. “Big Brothers Big Sisters has played such a significant role in my life here in Philadelphia that it’s a privilege to be a part of an event that benefits their lifesaving work,” said Marrone. “The guidance and mentorship opportunities that this outstanding organization has offered our community is enormous. I look forward to celebrating their achievements while raising money for their ongoing endeavors.
“Furthermore, I’d like to acknowledge the Philadelphia Eagles and our dedicated sponsors, many of whom call Philly home, for lending their name and resources to this meaningful fundraiser. We couldn’t be this successful year after year without them.”
The women’s fashion show will feature Miller’s Fall 2018 clothing line, while the men’s show will include a bespoke suit line from Damari Savile and men’s shoes by ToBox. Once again, Philadelphia’s own Jason Matthew Salon will donate all hair and makeup services for the female models.
