Important Charity Fashion Show Coming Downtown

This morning Macy's announced that they are bringing their annual Passport Fashion Show to the Orpheum Theatre, located in the Historic Broadway Core. After being located on the Westside for 14 years, "Macy's Passport Presents Glamora" will now make its home at the intersection of Los Angeles' historic and fashion districts, in partnership with the City of L.A. and my Bringing Back Broadway initiative. Through its history the show has raised more than $28 million for HIV/AIDs services. Macy Gray and Eric Hutchinson will headline the 28th Annual event this September, which will feature top designers and is sure to draw a large crowd. More importantly the event will continue to benefit HIV/AIDS services, prevention and research, while targeting downtown's young, fashion-savvy population and boosting our local economy. A big thanks to Macy's and Steve Needleman, owner of the Orpheum, and a committed Bringing Back Broadway supporter.
