MGWC and LA on Cloud9 Non-Profit Organization October 23, 2016

Karen Roberson

On Sunday October 23, 2016, MGWC had the honor of volunteering with Claudia Perez and her amazing organization called LA on Cloud9. They celebrated their 3 year anniversary and what better way to celebrate by giving back to the community! MGWC helped serve the homeless and community in need with LA on Cloud9 and was joined by over 290 volunteers and friends of all ages! Over 500 plates of hot food were provided to all adults and children in attendance at MacArthur Park in Los Angeles CA. Our homeless friends also received lots of love and support from generous donations! LA on Cloud9 were able to give them the basic essentials like clothes, shoes, blankets, toys, and other goodies.

Tracy Maestro-Rivas, provided over 30 hair cuts and styles! Rae Rose Ortiz provided fashionable eyebrow threading too! What a blessing! They had face painting and activities for the kids too. Just AWESOME!

MGWC look forward to teaming up with LA on Cloud9 again because this organization is doing some amazing things for the community. Thanks again Claudia and LA on Cloud9. See you soon =)

Runway 4 Peace 2nd Annual Fashion Show!

Karen Roberson

MGWC attended the Second Annual Runway 4 Peace Fashion Show in Compton California.

Runway 4 Peace is an non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness for the STOP THE VIOLENCE cause by gathering our youth to create and showcase a positive event within our community. As well as giving young girls the opportunity to experience life on the runway.

The Founder
DeNika Turner-Stephens, have a passion with a purpose.
"I turned my dream into something that can benefit others. Modeling is something I always had interest in, due to the limited income of my parents, I was unable to attend modeling classes for professional guidance. Growing up in the city of Compton, there were not many activities for young girls to participate in besides, sports or cheer-leading. I wanted to be a model and at that time there were no programs to assist me in fulfilling my dream. Therefore, I taught myself how to catwalk by mimicking super models, Tyra Banks and Naomi Campbell, and have been in over 50+ fashion shows. However, at times, the frustration grew on me because I wasn't the "industry type" model (5'9, slim, great bone structure, etc) and was rejected many times by designers.
 
That is when I made a promised to myself, I wanted to create a program where young women who had interest in modeling could have a starting point. Unfortunately, there was a minor setback. My niece, Erica Miranda was shot 3 times at the age of 10 (March 2010), while playing outside of her home. It was fortunate that God blessed her to live and she is now walking again. After tragic struck, I was eager to raise awareness towards the STOP THE VIOLENCE cause. I've known many people who have been killed due to violence. As for my major comeback, I finally came up with the name Runway 4 Peace for my organization to create and showcase positivity in our community.
 
I produced my first successful fashion show in June 2012. After 2 years past,  I better prepared myself to produce the most anticipated fashion show in city of Compton. With over 150 attendees, the Runway 4 Peace Fashion Show made it on LA Times website and blew peoples mind away due to the purpose behind this uncoventional event."

MGWC were happy to make a donation to help support Runway 4 Peace in their efforts to Stop the Violence in our Community.

Congrats De'Nika and keep impacting the community one cat walk at a time!
