Jamie’s Dream Team Beyond Belief Fashion Show Helped Kids’ Dreams Come True!
Last night, UroMed & LASCI founder Bert Burns joined Jamie’s Dream Team in Pittsburgh, PA for a night of Fun and Fashion at the Hollywood Theater. Jennifer Mele hosted the first “Beyond Belief” Fashion Show, where attendees got a glimpse of summer fashion trends from Macy’s modeled by 20+ children with serious medical conditions who were waiting for their dream to come true, courtesy of the Jamie’s Dream Team foundation.
Music was provided by DJ Tank along with a Music Performance by Abuery Burchell. (see below for a video of Abuery performing) A silent auction also offered great opportunities to bid on area gift certificates, such as overnight stays to luxurious hotels in the city and dinner on Mt. Washington.
LASCI founder Bert Burns served as the event’s keynote speaker. Burns says, “It was an honor to team up with Jamie Holmes and Tom Exler on another community event, we are so impressed with their commitment to the making kids’ dreams come true through Jamie’s Dream Team. LASCI and UroMed are huge fans of their events and we try to support them whenever we can do so.”
