ESTEEM A Fashion Show Benefiting the Elisa Project

For guests such as Leesa Alhadef, Jane Robertson, Becky Peacock Morris, Trudy Cresswell, Bethany Siggins, Patricia Granowski, Nancy Campbell and Kate Wagner, Wednesday, March 3 began with the First Annual ESTEEM A Fashion Show at The Grand Pavilion of the Dallas Trade Mart. Talented and creative Rhonda Sargent Chambers did double duty as Chairman and Fashion Show Producer through her company RSC Show Productions.

After guests got breakfast treats and went to their tables, they were welcomed by Mistress of Ceremonies, Debbie Denmon from WFAA-TV. Then models including Diane Johnston, Drew Pearson, Amy Mueller and Carole and Scott Murray walked down the runway in gorgeous fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue Galleria Dallas selected and coordinated by Becky Peacock Morris.

ESTEEM is the newest event of The Elisa Project a nonprofit organization dedicated to the prevention and effective treatment of eating disorders through awareness, information, education, support, and advocacy. The Elisa Project was founded in 1999 by Rick and Leslie McCall in memory of their daughter Elisa McCall, a vibrant 20-year old college student who suffered with the pain of an eating disorder and ultimately took her own life. She recorded her struggle in a personal journal and its posthumous publication has inspired many in our community to join in combating eating disorders. The McCalls wanted to share the message that recovery from eating disorders is possible and that no one should have to suffer or recover alone.
