Trinity Partners Metamorphosis: The Art of Giving is a unique event that merges fashion and philanthropy. For the fourth year, RunningWorks is partnering with world-renown fashion designer Luis Machicao, who has been commissioned by the President of Peru (his home country) to serve as “style ambassador” for the Peruvian First Lady. This special event, which seeks to raise awareness and financial support for the mission of RunningWorks, will be held Saturday, September 28 at LaCa Projects.

 

Machicao will showcase one of a kind couture gowns and men’s suits designed especially for our 10 handpicked philanthropic Charlotte influencers or “Social Butterflies” who serve as mentors for members of the RunningWorks team. During this event, these Social Butterflies will hit the runway alongside their mentees, making it an exciting and fun night for all!

 

This unique approach will highlight the transition, or metamorphosis, of our RunningWorks team members as they transition out of homelessness into beautiful, fully functioning butterflies in society.

Social Butterfly Mentorship and Fundraising Campaign

The annual gala celebrates the culmination of our annual Social Butterfly Campaign. This six-month campaign pairs a notable, dynamic, passionate and philanthropic Charlottean, or “Social Butterfly”, with a RunningWorks team member to serve as a mentor. The relationships forged between mentors and mentees certainly last longer than the campaign as Social Butterflies and their RunningWorks mentees will strut their stuff on the runway at the Saturday, September 28 fashion show.
