Drop Dead Gorgeous Announces Fashion Benefit

(BUSINESS WIRE)--Drop-Dead Gorgeous, a campaign of the 501-c3 organization, Meet Justice, Inc., which engages the fashion and entertainment industries to help raise funds and awareness about child sex trafficking; will host its annual Fashion Benefit on Tuesday, March 3, 2009. The Drop Dead Gorgeous Fashion Benefit, chaired by Susan Muscari and Bronni Karatassos, will take place at 7 p.m. at 103 West in Buckhead, Georgia.

Sadly, Atlanta ranks among the top three cities in the U.S. affected by child sex trafficking. Meet Justice, Inc. is primarily a volunteer-driven organization, which rallies to end child sex trafficking internationally.

After drug dealing, human trafficking (meaning forced labor or sexual servitude) is tied with the illegal arms industry as the second largest criminal industry in the world today, and it is the fastest growing (*US Department of Health and Human Services, Human Trafficking Fact Sheet).

The 2009 Drop Dead Gorgeous Fashion Benefit features a fashion show by Nina Gleyzer Couture, Woller + Fogle of SCAD, and T. Boutique; with jewelry by Jen Boaz Designs. Live and silent auctions include an exclusive Napa Valley getaway to the Mondavi family winery, 29Spa and Neiman Marcus luncheon, private dinner for 8 at Kyma cooked by renowned chef Pano Karatassos, and a tour to Spain’s finest wineries.

Other contributors include Buckhead Life Restaurant Group, Four Seasons Atlanta Magazine, Six Degrees Magazine, Q100, Folio Wines, Peroni, Absolut Vodka, Buckhead Beef, Richie Arpino Salon, 29Spa, Neiman Marcus, Wendy Babchin Designer Group, and 1-800-Flowers.

Tickets are $125 per person and may be purchased by visiting www.dropdeadgorgeousevent.org. For more information please contact Susan Muscari or Bronni Karatassos at 678-644-0421.
