Masons Presents How to Live United

Let me start off with saying, last night was simply amazing!! If you weren't there, you missed a great show of individuals from the community showing their style in a Masons special edition Live United shirt, but most importantly, the models showed that it's stylish to support your community.

Models arrived early to the event to get their hair and make-up done by the stylists at Pink Papaya. We also had some volunteers who came early to lend an extra pair of hands to ensure the event was ready when guests started arriving at 6 p.m.

When guests arrived, they were encouraged to pledge to Live United by writing their pledge down and having their picture taken holding that pledge. Also as guests arrived they were treated to a plethora of sights, sounds and smells.

As soon as you walked in you could see items that were up for silent auction which were framed by the beautiful decorations provided by Masons, Festivites and Jules Designs.

As you walked around a distinct aroma filled the air from the delicious appetizers that were courtesy of Tyson's, Chef Mario Valdevinos and the First Security Bank Teal Grill Team. Once you grabbed a plate of the delicious h'or dourves, Beyond the Bar was set up to serve people their choice of beverage including the events signature beverage imagined by Tyson Corporate Chef David Jeeter.

The highlight of the evening, though, was of course the fashion show! We had nearly 40 models showing off how they Live United, and each brought a bit of their personality to the runway as Dana Sargent of Fox 24 shared with all the attendees how our models Live United everyday.

The evening ended with several people going home with the fantastic silent auction items donated by various local vendors.

We hope to repeat this event in the coming years, and hope that next year you can join us once again as we show how fashionable it can be to Live United.
