8th Annual Bariatric Fashion Show A Success
This past weekend was our 8th Annual Fashion Show hosted by The Obesity Prevention Foundation and Western Bariatric Institute. It was a great event that allowed some of our patients to share their success with friends, family and the Reno community. It also provided us with a great opportunity to spread the word about the obesity prevention foundation. Thank you to everyone who came out to the show.
I would also like to send out a very special thank you to Joe Hart who, as usual, performed impeccably as the Master of Ceremonies. As always, Joe is a very gracious and professional host noting the tremendous life change and improvement in health of our models while also highlighting the great clothes they were wearing that were provided by many local clothiers.
I don’t have official numbers in, but it looked to me like there were around one thousand attendees of the event this year and it was near standing room only in the Rose Ballroom at the Convention Center. The Convention Center staff did a fantastic job making this year’s show appear glamorous and professional as did Kathy Parker and her excellent team in planning and coordinating the event.
This year, greater awareness was raised and mention made of the activities of Obesity Prevention Foundation, which this summer will be kicking off quite a few activities meant to raise awareness for healthy kids and healthy families.
