This December, American Girl, the hugely popular doll brand, invites girls and their friends and families to experience the American Girl Fashion Show on Sunday, December 8, 2013 at Shula’s Hotel & Golf Resort in Miami Lakes. This fun, engaging program showcases historical and contemporary fashions for girls and their dolls. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Embrace Girls Foundation’s after-school programs and camps. South Florida girls have until November 20th to sign up and participate as models in the show.
American Girl is known for its flagship line of historical characters, representing pivotal times in America’s past. Each girl modeling in the fashion show has fundraised for the Embrace Girls
Foundation and will model her favorite American Girl character. Funds raised will support the Foundation’s after-school programs and events.
The fashion show will celebrate girls of yesterday and today through a colorful mix of historical and contemporary fashion. Guests will enjoy tasty refreshments, enter to win grand door prizes, and will experience how clothing has changed over the years to reflect history, culture, and girls’ individual styles.
Additionally, 12-year-old local singer-songwriter and philanthropist, Savannah Maddison, will give a performance as well as model in the fashion show, which will be emceed by current Miss Florida Teen USA, Natalie Fiallo, and Miss Miami Lakes Teen USA, Jackie Garcia- Casals.

When & Where
Little Warrior Project
The Little Warrior Project provides military kids with programs & services that improve Morale, Welfare and Overall quality of life.
When we talk about how our Nations men and women in uniform sacrifice so much and serve this country so bravely, we’re not just talking about the parents, we are also talking about their children who unknowingly sacrifice, because we know that when parents are called to serve, the child serve right alongside them.
We are currently based in Florida and work in the local community to make a difference every day by providing the children of military and public service personnel with programs that focus on:
- Health & Wellness
- Community Service
- Bereavement Counseling
Our programs and services focus on the needs of the children and are not just about providing entertainment, they also serve as a support group for the participants. Through social interaction children learn that they are not alone, providing them with a peer network of support in which life-long friendships are developed and support provided long after the event.
All this being said, these children have still managed to learn from an early age that home is where their hearts are, that a good friend can be found in every corner of the world and in every color, and that education doesn’t only come from books. They live in history as it is being made, they learn that to survive means to adapt, that when a door closes one chapter of their life, another door opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of experiences.
We aspire to have a national presence and promote awareness of this unique opportunity to provide support for the children of our Nations Warriors.
