ORLANDO — Who exactly are the Guys With Ties – and what are they up at the Amway Center this month?
Let’s put it this way: stylish attire is recommended whenever you hang out with them, and best of all, it’s all for a good cause.
It’s also part of a special event: Orlando’s own annual Spring Fashion Show at the Amway, when a nonprofit group – made up of lawyers, doctors, engineers and sales executives – give guests a sample of the latest apparel from boutiques like Lauren Nicole, Downtown Divas, 69 Slam and more.
Guys With Ties Spring Fashion Show returns on Saturday, May 17 at 180 Grey Goose Lounge at the Amway Center in downtown Orlando from 8-11 p.m.
This is the premiere kick-off event for what the Guys with Ties president and event chairman, J.R. Tanghal, called the start of an “exciting, eventful year.”
Tanghal said this is a fundraiser for the nonprofit organization that was founded in Orlando in 2005.
“Guys With Ties puts the fun into fundraising,” Tanghal said, “and this year’s event will feature an exciting fashion show modeled by Orlando Magic Dancers showcasing the city’s hottest apparel.”
It should be, he added, the ideal way to “get people in the mood for the spring fashion season.”
Guys With Ties of Orlando was founded by eight young professional men who wanted to make a difference in the community, and in the past decade they put together 12 board members committed to a long-term mission to raise money with local charities that focus on special needs of the Central Florida community.
Their method of raising funds is to organize themed parties throughout the year. The Board of Directors, which includes numerous entrepreneurs, hope to give back to a community that has made them successful.
At the Spring Fashion Show, Orlando Magic Dancer Cori Yarkin will take the stage as Emcee with DJ A-Rock spinning as well.
This year’s Spring Fashion Show proceeds benefit Guys With Ties Philanthropy of Orlando, who have been hosting themed events for nearly ten years to raise funds for numerous local charities in the Central Florida community.
Again, if you show up, dress in style. A $15 cash donation is recommended at the door. For more news and information on upcoming Guys With Ties events, visit Guys With Ties.
