Bow-Ties for Warriors

And by warriors, I mean people who give back to their communities.

Have you heard of Leonard Simpson, the Fashion Forward® founder and popular, San Diego media personality?

His signature fundraising event, 10 Best Dressed Awards, recently commenced its 9th gala on Thursday, November 17, honoring 15 women and 12 men within the San Diego community for their philanthropic efforts “…for being generous, compassionate and courageous in helping others world-wide.”

“Leonard believes that the best way to get dressed is with ‘the Gloves of Compassion and a Coat of Courage’™ marking the recognition of over 160 honorees to date.”

This year’s theme was “En Pointe at the Prado,” benefiting the San Diego Civic Youth Ballet. In addition to the black-tie awards ceremony, attendees were treated to a theatrical show, all held at Balboa Park’s Prado Ballroom and Casa del Prado Theater.

A variety of awards, including Lifetime Achievement and Best Dressed, were given to active members of the San Diego community in recognition of their philanthropic contributions in journalism, fashion, and leadership.

Bow-Ties awards for 10 Best awards recipientsCarey Reddick II, CEO and founder of Above-Time, Inc was asked to provide a bow-tie award packet to each of the male honorees. “We developed the new ‘Titan’ line of bow-ties specifically for this event. Above-Time is honored to give back to the community once again.”
The letter inserted in each award package read:
Congratulations on being selected for this prestigious event. Your giving heart and sense of style has placed you among other fashionable local San Diegans.

Above-Time would like to not only applaud you on your sense of style but also provide you with a stylish bow-tie fashioned specifically for you. This bow-tie signifies the battles you endured and overcame. The pendant in the center of the bow-tie signifies the warrior in you.”

The Titan Warrior Couture Line will launch soon as a limited, exclusive product.

The future looks bright for Above-Time. A December fashion show will end 2016 on a high note, while 2017 is shaping up to be another exciting year, as Reddick and company prepare for New York Fashion week and the spring launch of the new rash guard.

Although this is a sponsored post, the intent of this article is not to sell a product, but to focus attention and awareness on the growth and evolution of the Above-Time brand. Opinions are my own.

Thanks for reading!
