Tampa Bay Rays on the Runway fashion show tickets on sale
It must be great to be a baseball wife (or a baseball player, for that matter). There's the money and the glamor, of course. But darn it if they aren't always walking in some awesome local fashion show for great causes, too. Man. What about the wives of computer programmers, huh?
On June 29, members of the Tampa Bay Rays and their wives will walk the runway at the 4th annual Rays on the Runway event to benefit the Children’s Dream Fund. Here's Reid Brignac walking with a special lady in last year's show.
The doors open at 6:30 p.m. at the Tampa Museum of Art. You can nosh on cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and hob nob with the players and their wives, asking them how their lives got so good and PLEASE, TEACH US YOUR WAYS. Or something. The fashion show will follow, featuring clothes from Saks Fifth Avenue.
Famous face expected: Katelyn and Wade Davis, Giselle and Sean Rodriguez, Michelle and Johnny Damon, Jen and Kelly Shoppach, Julianna and Ben Zobrist, Randi and Matt Joyce, Ryane and James Shields, Sarah and Sam Fuld, Allison and Derek Shelton, Robin and Andrew Friedman, Heather and JP Howell, Jennifer and Felipe Lopez, Shayla and Kyle Farnsworth, David Price, Evan Longoria, Jeremy Hellickson, Jeff Niemann and Reid Brignac.
Children with life-threatening illnesses will also walk the runway. The event is still a couple weeks away, but tickets and sponsorships are $100, are available now at childrensdreamfund.org or (727) 896-6390.
