On Saturday, July 16, 2016, Hamiltonâ€™s Heart Foundation will host its first annual Heart for Fashion fashion show and charity event. Pacific Sothebyâ€™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.
Hamiltonâ€™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 Hamiltonâ€™s Heart Foundation and Radyâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Hospital.
â€œIt 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,â€ says Watson. â€œThere are thousands of families who can not afford necessary medical attention for their kids and through the work of the Hamiltonâ€™s Heart Foundation we are able to offer support to help so many children in need.â€
The event will allow disabled children from across San Diego to walk the runway as models. Many of these children have dreamed of Â modeling, but have been prevented from doing so because of their disabilities. â€œThe 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,â€ said Lynell Hamilton, the founder of Hamiltonâ€™s Heart Foundation.
