Men model women’s
clothes to aid Go Red
It’s been said that to truly understand someone you must walk a mile in their shoes.
While it wasn’t quite a mile, the men at Technical Consumer Products in Aurora raised understanding of and awareness for heart disease in women by taking to the catwalk — in heels — for a charity fashion show Feb. 19.
All proceeds benefited Go Red for Women.
Taking place during National Heart Month, the “Our Guys are Dolls” fashion show presented women’s evening and cocktail attire in a whole new light — modeled by TCP’s male employees who are passionate about bringing an end to a disease that, according to the National Heart Association, kills more women than all forms of cancer combined.
“We’ve all been touched in some way by heart disease in women,” said Ed Rogowski, director of operations and one of TCP’s male models who participated in the show.
“Heart disease is definitely not a laughing matter, but sometimes the best way to embrace a cause is with a little humor. That’s what we intend to do while showing support for the women in our lives.”
