This fundraiser event will be held on Saturday, February 16th from 10am-12pm in Birmingham, AL with special guests Hannah McMurphy, Miss Alabama USA 2019 and Kalin Burt, Miss Alabama Teen USA 2019.

  • Runway Lesson
  • Photoshoot with 1 Retouched High-Resolution Photo
  • Entry Into Photo Challenge
  • Light Refreshments

This event is open to models of all ages, genders and experience levels. Each attendee will receive a runway lesson from 
professional model and former Miss AL USA, Tara Darby Rasheta, a mini photoshoot with Dallas-based, award-winning Photographer, Radz Daswani, and entry into the photo challenge. Each model must register by purchasing a ticket and a parent/guardian may attend with them without purchasing a separate ticket. 

The image that is retouched by the photographer to be used for the photo challenge (this is the same image that will also be released to you) is at the event organizer's discretion and will be 
emailed to you in a high-resolution digital file. If, at that time, you wish to order additional retouched images you will have the option to do so.

A panel of judges will be reviewing the images after the event and will determine the winner. The winner of the photo challenge will receive a $500 valued prize package including a private Agency Placement Workshop from Model Makers Group ($350), 25 comp cards ($50) and a video comp card produced by Radz D. Photography ($100).

Proceeds from this event will benefit A Model Patient. This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is dedicated to serving women around the country who are facing breast cancer. It’s a woman-to-woman, grassroots approach in order to positively and directly impact patients. A Model Patient was founded by Tara Darby Rasheta (professional model and Miss Alabama USA 2004) as she was facing her own breast cancer battle at the age of thirty-five. The outpouring of love and support she received from her community inspired her to start this charity.
