For his project in Landmark Education’s Self Expression and Leadership Program, Eric Riley held a gala, black tie fundraiser for Betty’s Haven, a prominent women’s shelter located in Houston. The event, which he named the ‘Essimage Beauty Celebration’ also featured some of the women from the shelter as guests of honors. The details come from the Essimage website:
Essimage Beauty Celebration is a black-tie formal affair that will lift you, move you and inspire you. Participants and guests alike will leave excited, satisfied, empowered and acknowledged for their contribution to Betty’s haven, a worthy local women’s shelter.
On Friday, June 13, a grand celebration of powerful effeminate beauty will be displayed on larger than life photo prints in a fine banquet hall creating the experience of an adoring art gallery. Women and girls from Betty’s Haven will be some of our guests of honor with their beautiful portraits decorating the walls.
Perfectly styled refreshments will be enjoyed by all attending while being entertained by talented local music artists. Other guests of honor will be the contributing who’s who of Houston’s celebrated women who are the models fo the high-fashion artistic photos on display.
There will be a silent auction and the evening will end with a special acknowledgment of Betty Street and the guests of honor given by a local Houston celebrity.
This celebration is a community leadership project as an expression of a program with Landmark Education.
