On Saturday, May 7, 2016 the Angel Watching Over Me Foundation (AWOM) kicked off its 1st annual all white Gala. The evening included performances, releases, fashion food and fun. AWOM is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Sarah Akiba, a wardrobe stylist and fashion designer from Miami, FL who lost her father to lung cancer in 2013. The foundation, which unites people from all over the world who have lost an “angel” raises awareness and supports victims and their families who are left behind by a loving friend, family, or any other important person in their life.
The celebratory evening, which took place in the trendy neighborhood of Wynwood, welcomed over 100 guests, all dressed in white and looking angelic. Guests were able to sip on the one-of-a-kind Tito’s Handmade Vodka and try the delicious, innovative doughnuts from The Salty Doughnut. Attendees were also able to get a first look at the new AWOM collection, comprised of denim hats and comfortable yet fashionable sweatshirts and they had the chance to join a silent auction which included stylish picks from Kith, Sneak Peak Luxury, By Jove and more.
