Modeling for a Cause

Later this month (March 20th), I'll be participating in my first Team DC Fashion Show with other 12 other models.  Team DC is the umbrella organization of the LGBT sports clubs in the Washington, DC region. Each year they sponsor a Fashion Show and Model Search to benefit their Team DC College Scholarship Program which is given annually to LGBT student-athletes graduating from high school.  And since I play tennis for CTA (under the Team DC organization), what better way to blend two of my passions for a charitable cause? 

But this is also a competition!  Models will be judged on their ability to show off the clothing, how well they work the crowd during the Auction (not the Auction item amount since some items will be more costly than others), and crowd response.  Clothing lines include selections from Cha Cha Boy, the Leather Rack, Universal Gear, Fireboy, Caramel and Skiviez. 

There will also be an online voting portion of the show leading up to the competition on March 20, which will account for 25% of a model's overall score.  You can vote daily so stop by and vote for your favorite.  The model with the highest overall score wins $500 cash, a free professional photoshoot with Robert Mercer photography, and becomes an automatic finalist to be considered for the 2011 Ripped Genes calendar.
