Walking with Anthony Golf Tournament & Dinner @ The Country Club of Fairfax
Sep 25 @ 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM

Walking With Anthony, a Spinal Cord Injury foundation, teamed up with Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation and Alumni Association to host The 5th Annual Charity Celebrity Golf Tournament & Dinner at Country Club of Fairfax

 

  • The event will honor Doug Williams, NFL legend and trailblazer for his great strides in the Spinal Cord Injury community.  Williams is known for being the first African American starting quarterback to win a Super Bowl and for his remarkable performance in Super Bowl XXII.   Williams became the 1st player in Super Bowl history to pass for 4 touchdowns in a single quarter, and 4 in a half.

 

  • This year’s lead Spinal Cord Injury beneficiary is Georgetown University’s Ty Williams, a Georgetown Senior football player who was tragically hurt with a Spinal Cord Injury during a September football game for the college.  Although he cannot play, Ty motivates The Hoyas every day and shows perseverance in face of adversity.

 

  • Former Washington Redskin and local ESPN radio personality Rick “Doc” Walker will serve as the Master of Ceremonies.

 

  • The event will feature a day of golf with Washington Redskins players, alumni, legendary sports celebrities and VIP guests raising awareness during National Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month (September). Golfers will be treated to The Liberty Mutual Invitational Gift Suite. The Gift Suite will feature a variety of items including golf gear, shoes and custom-rolled cigars.

 

  • 100% of donations to Walking with Anthony will benefit those who so desperately need support on their road to recovery and independence. Walking With Anthony was inspired by Anthony Purcell, a young man who became disabled during a tragic accident in 2010, but can now stand and take steps in braces after years of hard work and physical therapy training. Walking with Anthony is dedicated to raising awareness of the impact of spinal cord injuries (SCI), raising funds to provide financial assistance for SCI victims, expanding rehabilitation centers, and supporting research relating to SCI rehabilitation. The Walking With Anthony mission is to forever change the recovery outcome of SCI, currently perceived as unchangeable.

8th Annual Cosmo Couture @ Howard Theatre
Sep 28 @ 5:30 PM – 10:00 PM

The world is filled with different types of environments; from the natural world as a whole to particular geographical areas. This year the creativity by interior designers will make these environments fashionable and transform them into wearable works of art when the 8th Annual Cosmo Couture Fashion & Design event takes place on Thursday, September 28th in Washington, D.C.

The annual event produced by the Washington Metro City Center (WMCC) of the International Interior Design Association Mid-Atlantic Chapter (IIDA-MAC), will pay tribute to the various environments that we live in and also surround us. Local architecture and interior design firms and manufacturing partners will create apparel out of interior materials reflecting the given theme. This year, each garment will transport the audience into a new ENVIRONMENT, pulling their design inspiration from the environmental definition: the surroundings or conditions in which a person, plant or animal lives or operates. Garments are constructed out of interior materials such as tile, carpet, wood, vinyl, glass and rubber –  materials used in the built environment and finding ways to apply them to haute couture fashion, creating a bridge between fashion and architecture. These individual inspirations allow the design teams to conceptualize and create a garment around their inspiration’s feel, look, and sound. Each year the theme changes with past themes focusing on D.C. area landmarks, such as the Smithsonian Museums, Embassies, American Presidents, the National Zoo, to an Under The Big Top circus theme.

Twenty-four design teams will participate in this year’s event. Designs will be judged by an elite panel of judges such as Michael McCarthy (Editor-in-Chief, DC Modern Luxury)Kim Elleen (Chief Washington Reporter for the Boston Herald & Fashion Designer – Kim Elleen Collection)Fashion & Interior Stylist Stara Pezeshkian (more to be announced soon) and awards will be given in various categories such as:

Best Performance

  • Best Performance
  • Best Use of Materials
  • Best Interpretation of Theme
  • Best Red Carpet Look
  • Audience Favorite (People’s Choice)

The 2017 Cosmo Couture beneficiary is Rebuilding Together of Washington, DC (RTDC).  RTDC’s mission is to preserve and revitalize low-income homes and community facilities in our Nation’s Capital.  RTDC makes free home repairs for low-income DC homeowners who are Veterans, elderly, disabled or caring for young children in seriously deteriorating conditions and for nonprofit community centers that serve DC’s most vulnerable citizens of all ages. RTDC’s home repairs enable low-income homeowners to remain in their homes, where they can live in warmth and safety with independence and dignity. To date, the IIDA Mid-Atlantic Chapter has donated over $100,000 to previously selected charities from Cosmo Couture proceeds during the past six years.
