The Show Me the Way Foundation is pleased to announce Runway Red, the 2nd annual charity fashion gala featuring pint-size socialites, mini-me movers and shakers and their well-known celebrity parental escorts. The non-profit foundation provides mentoring and positive group activities for youth infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS and other terminal health issues. Runway Red takes place on Saturday, July 26, 2008 at the America's Mart in downtown Atlanta.
With former celebrity support including the children/ family of Outkast, Nelly, Jermaine Dupri, Mayor Shirley Franklin and more - this year's show aims to unite some of the most recognized faces and influential members of society to rally support in fighting an epidemic that effects millions of people every day. Statistics show that Georgia is the ninth state in pediatric AIDS cases in the U.S. Out of over 500 AIDS organizations in Georgia, there are only 13 that focus on children with HIV/AIDS.

Tashawnya Menefee, President and Founder of the foundation stated, "Foundations such as Show Me the Way are unique and special because a cumulative total of 14 million children in the world have lost their mothers or both parents to AIDS and we focus many of our efforts on serving this specific demographic."
