Miracles Outreach From Runaway to Runway

An Evening of Elegance

From Runaway to the Runway

September 24, 2015
1930 Grande Room – Ybor City
6:00pm – 10:00pm

Miracles Outreach is proud to announce the 3rd Annual “From Runaway to the Runway Fall Fashion Gala”. We want to thank all of our sponsors and all who plan to attend. The program consist of a Class & Sass cocktail hour followed by a runway show showcasing current and former residents of our housing program and the local fashion designers who support them.

Event Overview

Proceeds from this highly anticipated event will directly benefit Miracles Outreach programs. Each dollar will go to improving the lives of abused, at-risk, foster care and exploited youth of Human Trafficking which currently live in our housing facilities. The Fashion Show participants from our organization are all turning 18 and are in the process of transitioning out of Miracles Outreach housing.
For those who are leaving Miracle Outreach; this is their PROM! Many of them have had to grow up too quickly because they have had unfortunate childhoods and have missed out on many rights of passage that most teenagers take for granted. The Fashion Show gives them the opportunity to have their hair done, make-up perfected, wear designer clothes and attend an event where people support their perseverance.
The purpose of this event is raise awareness about Runaways who have made their way to the Runway. It also gives local decision makers an opportunity to meet amazing children who have risen above their often troublesome circumstances to find a sense of joy.

Founder, Tinsley Family of Companies

Mr. George Tinsley, Sr. is a master of the triple threat position in life, basketball and business. He is CEO of PenGeo, Inc., Tinsley Group, Inc. and Tinsley Family Concessions, collectively Tampa Bay’s 3rd largest Black-owned enterprise, and one of the fastest growing independent restaurant conglomerates in the nation. He credits his roots on the basketball courts of the impoverished Smoketown neighborhood in Kentucky for teaching him life’s most valuable lesson: always be prepared to shoot, pass or dribble the ball. After 21 years of entrepreneurship, Tinsley holds as many records in business as he did in basketball. He was honored as KFCC’s Premier Operator for a second time in 1994. His TGI Friday in Tampa has won the Highest Domestic Franchise Sales award 3 times since 1999, and the Domestic Franchise of the Year award 3 years straight from 1999 to 2002.
