For presenting sponsor Marrone Law Firm, charity begins at home as the law firm once again lends its support to Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region at star-studded event
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PHILADELPHIA, PA (Oct. 30, 2018) – Philly’s annual star-studded charity event, Fashion Touchdown 2018, will take place on Nov. 5, 2018, at The Fillmore from 5:30 pm to 9:30 pm EST. Marrone Law Firm, LLC is repeating its success as the presenting sponsor and has secured many from the city of brotherly love to continue their participation. The goal for this year’s event is $1 million, with all proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region (BBBS).
What has become one of the town’s biggest fundraisers, the event will feature members of the Super-Bowl winning team, the Philadelphia Eagles, once again lending their support by donning bespoke men’s fashions from Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins’ Damari Savile line and walking down the runway in style. ToBox Shoes will provide the men’s footwear.
Nicole Miller Philadelphia will showcase their Fall 2018 line by dressing the women for the show, with Nicole Miller herself in attendance to curate along with her team. Both Nicole Miller and ToBox are returning fashion runway sponsors.
Eagles players in the fashion show include Malcolm Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, Brent Celek, Todd Herremans, Jalen Mills, Chris Maragos, Jordan Hicks, and Zach Ertz. A live auction to win players’ jerseys and once-in-a-lifetime experiences will also be highlights of the evening’s activities.
“For five years, the event shows not only the love that Philly feels for our community but also the unwavering work that BBBS does on a daily basis for more than 3,500 children at risk,” said Joseph M. Marrone, Esq, Founding Partner of Marrone Law Firm, LLC. “It’s a testament to the belief that sponsors have in the event as many, from the Eagles to Nicole Miller and ToBox Shoes returning as participants and sponsors. Giving back to the community is what it’s all about.”
Marrone knows this first-hand. He has been a Big Brother himself and is currently on the Governing Board of BBBS Independence Region.
Joining this year as main sponsors include Live Nation, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and AmerisourceBergen. Returning food and beverage sponsors include Philly’s own Brulee Catering, Casamigos Tequila, Stateside Vodka, and Yards Brewery. Beauty partners include Philly’s Jason Matthew Salon who will once again provide hair styling for the women and Anastasia Beverly Hills who will coordinate the female models’ makeup.
“It’s true teamwork all the way around, from the players to the fashion runway and local food and beverage sponsors,” said Marrone. “We’re showcasing Philly at its best and we couldn’t be more proud of the impact that BBBS is having in our community.”
