We are a chapter of an organization that began with the grassroots efforts of Marjorie Guthrie, wife of Woody Guthrie. Woody passed away from complications of Huntington’s disease (HD) and an estimated 3,000 Oklahomans and their families are affected. We are putting on a Fashion Show and silent auction at Living Arts of Tulsa on April 27th. The doors open and silent auction begins at 6pm and show starts at 7pm. Ticket purchase of $25 per person includes entrance to show and refreshments. The theme is Whimsical and will include fashions from local stores, resell shops, boutiques and designers. Some fashions will be available for purchase. Items in our silent auction, snacks, and baked goods are donated by many Tulsa and surrounding businesses and individuals.
This event has been organized by HD family members and our models will be HD family members and supporters. We hope to raise funds and awareness with this event, but to also give some of our HD families a chance to let their beauty and hope for a cure shine.
HD is a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain. It deteriorates a person’s physical and mental abilities during their prime working years and has no cure. Every child of a parent with HD has a 50/50 chance of carrying the faulty gene that causes HD. Many describe the symptoms of HD as having, ALS, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases – simultaneously.
