Sunset, Rainbows and Events on the Delaware River Last Night

Summer suddenly, or in some folks opinions, finally turned into Fall last night after a few thunderstorms raced through the region. Then we were all treated to a wonderful sunset and double rainbow. Hope you saw it. I then did a quick run thru of the Menzfit Celebrity Fashion show at the Dockside Condo's and just want to touch on what a great organization it is. Rhonda E. Willingham, the President and Founder of MenzFit and many board members were in attendance like Brian Lipstein, Henry A. Davidsen Custom Clothier, who PHILLYCHITCHAT readers have met before at the many Menzfit donation cocktail parties that he holds through out the year.
A few of the volunteers from Menzfit, an organization that like my buds over at Career Wardrobe, outfits men who are entering into the workforce after trying times.
Helping out is CBS 3's Ukee Washington, who participated in the fashion show featuring clothes from Brooks Brothers

I think Dancing with the Philadelphia Stars is up next for Ukee Washington

Then it was on to the next event, which was conveniently located next door at the Moshulu. The Children’s Crisis Treatment Center (CcTC) had a night at sea on The Moshulu at the 11th AnnualCruise for the Kids!” Hosted by co-chairs Michelle Zou and Michael Ianni, the Cruise for the Kids will raise money for CcTC’s efforts to provide high quality, comprehensive mental and behavioral health services for Philadelphia’s children and their families. It was a regularLove Boat, the only thing missing was Charo, but folks did dance to the live Caribbean-themed sounds of Verdict and DJ Francisco, as he spins in between Verdict’s sets.
