When: May 1, 2014

Where: Neiman Marcus — International Plaza


The buzz surrounding Tampa Bay METRO’s annual cocktail and fashion event was that this was the best one yet. Neiman Marcus Vice President and General Manager, Kim Biehl, and PR Manager, Leanne Fish, brought the house down with a spectacular fashion show. The elevated runway allowed for a 360˚ view of the models and summer styles. DJ Felix energized the entire 2nd floor party with his music. Jewelry designer, Stephanie Kantis, showcased her latest bold gold designs.


The highlight of the evening was 8-year old dream child Marissa, who is undergoing treatment for acute lumphoblastic leukemia, and her friend Kayla, who performed an original song, The Music. Marissa’s dream is to sing in front of Ellen DeGeneres or a stage where famous people sing.


A special thank you to all the sponsors, including Neiman Marcus, Elite Events Catering, Hula Bay Club, 717 South, American Harvest Organic Spirits, Biliner Water, Two Prince Theater Bakery, Shutterbooth, La Vie en Rose Design, DJ Felix and Ellen Leedy Photography. 10 News anchors Heather Van Nest and Reginald Roundtree served as emcees for the evening.


Event proceeds will help fund dreams for The Children’s Dream Fund.
