Live United: Project Runway

Hey everybody!

Mere and I had a great night Thursday for a good cause!
Mason's, Liberty Bank, and the NWA United Way hosted the second annual LIVE UNITED event and Benfield Photography was a sponsor! We were happy to be back for the second year in a row to be a part of such a great event!

This year had a "Project Runway"-ish twist, where 10 local aspiring designers created some unbelievable ensembles out of United Way t-shirts and a little extra fabric! There were local celebrity judges (including Miss Arkansas) who voted on the top three designs, and it was a close race! While the votes were tabulatedd, there was a bit of a "who's-who" in NWA runway walk! Everyone from CEOs to socialites took to the runway! It was such a fun show! The crew at Mason's was so inviting, the NWA United Way staff is always fun, and FOX 24's Dana Sargent makes such a down-to-earth emcee!
Here are a few of our favorite pics from the night!

Talk to you soon!
