 "I am always moved by the support from the celebrity community," says Show Me the Way foundation executive director Tashawanya Menefee.

I'm just thankful that they have a heart for our foundation and the children affected by HIV/AIDS that the foundation was created to assist."


News of the upcoming celebrity kids fashion show has Atlanta buzzing after supermodel Cynthia Bailey (RHOA) hosted a model call on July 1st for additional talent to accompany the celebrity children in the show. Over three hundred children ages 5-18 came out to audition for the chance to strut alongside the offspring of some of their favorite celebrities. Menefee says she loves that the children participating are privy to an authentic production, and it has helped many of them find an inspiration to pursue modeling. "We have Runway Red alumni doing major productions and getting booked for commercials and productions in NY, etc.," she states proudly.
