Fashion Touchdown Announcement Party


August 7, 2019


On Wednesday, August 7th, Joan Shepp hosted the Fashion Touchdown Announcement Party presented by Big Brothers Big Sisters, Marrone Law Firm LLC, Damari Savile and Philadelphia Eagles alumni. Fashion Touchdown, in its sixth year, will be held on November 18th at the Fillmore Philadelphia. The fashion runway event will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters and feature styles by Damari Savile and Joan Shepp.

Marcus Allen, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters, announced the details of the Fashion Touchdown event and graciously accepted a donation from Joseph Marrone of Marrone Law Firm, LLC. Allen spoke of his organization and it's community impact. Alyssa DiMarcantonio Scheie, of Damari Savile, described her company's involvement with the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization- specifically their fashion design mentoring program.


Guests enjoyed refreshments by Yards Brewing Company and Brulee Catering. Bigs and Littles of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program came together to decorate the backdrop to be used for the Joan Shepp window display.
