LRFW and non-profit organization partner to make 'big' influence

LRFW and non-profit organization partner to make 'big' influence

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Little Rock Fashion Week (LRFW) is proud to announce that a new non-profit partner for LRFW 2011 is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas (BBBSCA). Brandon D. Campbell, founder and executive director of LRFW, selected BBBSCA because of their significant contributions to improving the lives of children in our community.

Campbell knows the difference the organization makes in the lives of children because he too has been directly influenced by the organization.  From age eight to eleven years old, Campbell was a "Little."
 
"The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas provided me with so many great eye-opening first time experiences, so I think it's only fitting that I help give other children their first major fashion experience," Campbell explains.
