According to Esteem Co-Chair Kathy Fielder,
My daughter Isabella Fielder and I, along with our co-chairs Abra Garrett and Charley Garrett, hope you will join us for the 9th annual Esteem Fashion Show benefiting The Elisa Project, which will be held on Thursday, September 6, from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Tootsies in The Plaza at Preston Center.
We are so honored to chair this year’s Esteem, a celebration of body image and self-esteem. By helping to increase awareness about eating disorders and the importance of positive body image, Esteem encourages people to love themselves while striving to be healthy. Proceeds support The Elisa Project (TEP) and the important programs dedicated to fighting eating disorder illnesses through awareness, education, support and advocacy.
This year, Esteem has moved to the evening, and will once again be hosted by our long-time partner Tootsies. Organized by founder and TEP board member Rhonda Sargent Chambers, Esteem will include cocktails courtesy of Kruto Vodka and light bites, entertainment by DJ Blake Ward, and at 7:30 p.m., a fashion show produced by Tootsies highlighting all of the 2018 fall trends. We are so thankful to our many partners for their support of the event, including Blushington Dallas on Oak Lawn Avenue for providing make-up for our models.

About The Elisa Project — The Elisa Project (TEP) was founded in 1999, by Rick and Leslie McCall, in memory of their daughter Elisa McCall, who lost her life to an eating disorder. TEP is dedicated to fighting against eating disorder illnesses through education, support and advocacy. Eating disorders affect up to 30 million children and adults in the U.S. and can be devastating to families and those who suffer. These disorders present complex mental and physical health issues, and have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness – up to 20%. They don’t discriminate, affecting both males and females of all ages, races, ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. It’s vital that we continue to expand our prevention and intervention efforts, and to improve access to treatment. If you or someone you know is suffering from an eating disorder, call The Elisa Project at 866.837.1999 to access the care and help you deserve.
