I am super excited to be attending the SHUZZ | ART | FASHION Show with my husband on April 2! As you may know, Shuzz Fund hosts its annual fundraiser every spring in Boca Raton to raise money to donate shoes to children in impoverished communities all over the world. On April 2, 2015 at Mizner Park, we will host a runway show featuring chic designer Haute Hippie, along with live entertainment, auction and food and an open bar.

The Shuzz Fund wanted to share with you details of the first Shuzz Medical Mission. Just a few months ago, Shuzz launched a Medical Relief Department and this week they performed our first surgery. Four year old boy Akem and his Mother, from Guyana, have travelled to the United States for Akem to receive world class medical treatment at Bethesda Hospital in Boynton Beach, FL. One of the Shuzz Fund’s Board Members conducted the surgery.
Akem’s ailments included internal tibial torsion, bowlegged and metatarsus adductus. In order to ensure he is able to walk, play, run, etc. for the rest of his life, the Shuzz Fund coordinated a bilateral tibial osteotomies surgery for Akem. Dr. Jodi Schoenhaus Gold, Shuzz Board Member, diagnosed him a few months ago in Guyana and on Monday, she successfully completed his surgery at Bethesda Hospital.
About Shuzz Fund
The Shuzz Fund, a non-profit organization that provides shoes to children in poverty-stricken areas, today announced The V Annual SHUZZ | ART | FASHION Show. The upscale event will bring chic designer Haute Hippie to Boca Raton’s Mizner Park Amphitheatre. The runway show, along with live entertainment, auction and food and beverage is scheduled for April 2, 2015. For the fifth year, the Shuzz Fund will host the event to raise the majority of its yearly funds to give shoes to children who need them the most in the United States, Haiti, Japan, Guatemala, Nepal, Jamaica and Venezuela. For the second consecutive year, Neiman Marcus has been an unparalleled sponsor behind the production of the show.
With a goal of raising $250,000 – 100% of which will be used for shoe donations and medical relief efforts – Shuzz has opened its ticket sales for the show and asks that the community in South Florida, and beyond, purchase tickets to help support this great cause.
“Yet again, we have tremendous sponsors behind the SHUZZ | ART | FASHION Show – Neiman Marcus, Celebrity Cruises, Seminole Casino, Mercedes Benz and many more,” said Rita Lombardo, Founder and Board Member, Shuzz Fund. “The event chairs for our fifth annual show – Cecila Lopez, Jacquelyn Sherry Coombe and Nya Montgomery, and the entire 2015 show committee have been working tirelessly to coordinate this event and we look forward to celebrating the achievements of the charity, and the funds we will raise, on April 2nd. It is even more critical for us to raise money this year as we recently launched medical relief efforts to help children who would otherwise not be able to walk do just that, and moreover, for them to run and play.”
