ONE NIGHT STAND” WITH NORMAN THOMAS HIGH SCHOOL

AND GRAND STREET SETTLEMENT

Celebrity Stylists Team With Manhattan High School and Charity Organization for Fashion Show Fundraiser for HIV/AIDS Awareness

NEW YORK, NY—April 27, 2008—Celebrity fashion stylists, Sandra Alexandre and Anise Labrum, recently teamed with the students of Norman Thomas High School and Grand Street Settlement with a generous grant provided by the United Way of New York City to produce their first annual fundraiser for HIV/AIDS awareness. The May 9th event, a fashion show entitled One Night Stand,” will be hosted by entertainer Tony Woods, with the red carpet hosted by Tracy Westmoreland of FOX News’ “RedEye.”

Sandra and Anise, are overseeing the creative/fashion direction for the show. The stylists have been working with the students over the past few months to teach them how to produce the show. The teens have been learning everything from stage production, fashion show coordination and how to perfect their runway walks from the team and other professionals that have donated their time to this worthy cause, including Oxygen Light Works, who donated all the lighting services to the event.

As word of the event started to spread, top-notch fashion brands and entertainment personalities began pouring in their support. Many major fashion labels have lent their many resources to all aspects of the production of the show.

With performances by RockStar Games Pro Skate Board Team, the evening of fashion will take place at Norman Thomas High School located at 111 East 33rd St (at Park Avenue) in Manhattan from 6 to 8 PM.
