I went out to support the Local Threads Fashion Show at Founder’s. The clothes were beautiful and they helped support the Kids Food Basket.
What: “LOCAL THREADS FASHION SHOW” a benefit event for KIDS FOOD BASKET.
Where: Founders Brewing Company (235 Grandville SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503)
When: September 20th, 2009 8pm
The Second Annual Local Threads Fashion Show will be held Sunday September 20th, 2009 at 8pm, at Founders Brewing Company on Grandville Avenue in Grand Rapids.
The event will feature lines made by such local designers as Lynn Anne Serulla, Khristi Menardie Yokum of Bliss Clothing, The GR8, Coat of Many Colors, Nate Dorotiak, and biking gear from the new Commute Bike Shop on Division Avenue. Echo Salon will feature their talents by styling the hair of the models. Event organizer and designer Lynn Anne Serulla offers the event as “a great way for people to network with others, also to keep Grand Rapids looking fresh in the latest gear from local talent. But it’s the guests that make it what it is.”
This year, Local Threads will be donating it’s proceeds to Grand Rapids own Kids Food Basket. Since there is no government sponsored program available, Kids Food Basket was created to combat the childhood food insecurity problem in Grand Rapids. This organization provides a healthy sack supper to approximately 1,346 elementary school children at 13 schools. These children have been identified by school officials as being nutritionally at-risk and would not otherwise be receiving an evening meal. The bagged supper in addition to the federal school food program puts the children at the daily-recommended requirement. Children who receive the appropriate daily requirement of nutrition have better attendance, grow stronger, and have improved grades at school.
The event will be per person, and will offer up sounds by DJ Spydre Murphy.

After weighing the risks and benefits of the HCG diet, Dr. Oz delivers his verdict. HCG WEIGHT LOSS CURE WHAT IS HCG? What is HCG? is a common question.

WHY HCG IS THE WEIGHT LOSS CURE? HCG is being called the weight loss cure because it is an obesity weight loss cure. HCG is believed to help reset the hypothalamus by sending signals to begin breaking down and using abnormally high body fat as a primary fuel source. These signals are believed to be sent when the body is experiencing a reduced and low calorie diet.

The stew took up the entirety of our largest stockpot and had 27 ingredients, including 2 types of rice (brown and wild), 5 lbs of potatoes, almost 18 cups of assorted beans and all the canned tomato products we had in the fridge! I baked off some sweet whole wheat and flaxseed bread to pair with it, and the whole meal was vegetarian, high-fibre, full of protein and (most importantly for our charity) CHEAP!
