Dreams Come True and Giles Gives Back to Host 3rd Annual Kids on the Katwalk
Non-profit organization seeking sponsors and volunteers for fashion show benefiting

children

Lafayette – Eleanor Roosevelt once wrote, “The future belongs to those who believe in
the beauty of their dreams.” However, those dreams seem to sometimes be lost when a
child is caught up in the struggle against life-threatening illnesses.
Dreams Come True of Louisiana asks you to join them at Acadiana Center for the Arts in
Lafayette on the evening of August 25 for their 3rd annual Kids on the Katwalk, brought
to you by Giles Gives Back and 337 Media.
The nonprofit 501c3 organization grants dreams to Louisiana children with life
threatening illnesses between the ages 3-18 years of age. Dreams Come True was
established 36 years ago, and thanks to the many sponsors and volunteers, they’ve had
the ability to make “dreams come true” for many terminally-ill children.
Dreams Kids will be model clothes from local boutiques as they strut the Katwalk for
their annual fashion show. In addition to the show, there will also be live and silent
auctions, cash bar by Ruffino’s on the River and music by child protégée, DJ Tutu. The
event is from 5:30-8:30 p.m., and tickets may be purchased for $40 a person or $75 per
couple. Price includes hors d’oeuvres by Ruffino’s on the River and Another Broken
Egg.
The organization is currently seeking donations of gift certificates or items from local
businesses to include in the auction. There are also positions for local boutiques to dress
the models for the fashion show, as well as sponsorship opportunities.
• Gold Sponsorship is $2000 and includes: Two tables of eight with a private
server, and two bottles of wine
• Silver Sponsorship is $1000 and includes: One table of eight and one bottle of
wine
• Bronze Sponsorship is $500 and includes sponsor recognition

endure hardships inherent with the struggles of facing a life-threatening illness.”
