Angels For Humanity announced actress, talk-show host, author, and television personality, GARCELLE BEAUVAIS as the 2021 “Distinguished Humanitarian Award” Recipient of this year’s Catwalk for Charity Brunch & Fashion Show. The 7th annual charity event will take place on Sunday, October 24, 2021, at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne from 12 PM – 4 PM and feature a stunning runway show by Los Angeles-based fashion designer Trang Phung and fashion designer Nardos Imam.

The event is produced by Angels for Humanity, a non-profit organization that aims to inspire, empower and support impoverished children in Haiti and around the world by providing access to quality education and healthcare.

“We sincerely believe education and healthcare are essential to eliminate the extreme poverty in Haiti and to ensure that the next generation is self-sufficient,” says Judith Joseph, founder of Angels for Humanity.
Joining Garcelle Beauvais for this benefit is the ‘Real Housewives of Miami’ cast member Adriana De Moura, and a few special surprise guests!
