Asian Mint’s name is in the headlines again! While we love being in the spotlight, this time the cause is much bigger than our name. Our friends at Dallas News covered the fashion show we hosted a few weeks ago that benefited the Genesis Women’s Shelter. In case you missed that article we’ll give you sneak peak right here. We got the chance to team up with local pro athletes and local fashion designers to make this fashion show a success. The proceeds were donated to the Genesis Women’s Shelter. The shelter is located in Dallas and helps women in domestic violence offering counseling, support and emergency shelter. They also help children receive school supplies. Nikky Phinyawatana, founder and co-owner of Asian Mint, opened the Forest Lane location to host the fashion show. For her, community is just as important as food. “We are very excited to host the event and help provide support for the Genesis Women’s Shelter. They offer much needed services for women and their children when they need it most.”
It was a night filled with fashion and good people. We also made sure people’s taste buds were happy, we offered hors d’oeuvres, sweets, and pink champagne. Our staff was also able to show off some their hidden talents as they walked the Asian Mint runway. That’s right! Our very own employees got the chance to wear the designer brands and strut their stuff. With 150 people in attendance, we highlighted six local designers. The entire event was emceed by our own former Dallas Cowboy Isaiah Stanback (his wife and daughter got to walk the runway too!) While everyone had a wonderful time, the cause brought us all together. We were able to support the Genesis Women’s Shelter in more than one way; we offered a raffle and clothes donation. We wanted everyone to remember this evening as much as we will and sent everyone in attendance home with a gift bag.
Co-owner Nikky Phinyawatana and Asian Mint love hosting events like this to give back to the community. Asian Mint has two locations and a third opening this summer. Check back to our blog for more information about other events like this. If you missed the fashion show, we are sorry you missed a night of food, fashion and fun. You can read the article about our event in the community column of the Dallas News Website.
If you are wondering how you can still help the cause, the Genesis Women’s Shelter is always accepting donations, they are in need of school supplies right now. This shelter aims to create a world without domestic violence by giving women and children in abusive situations a chance to be independent—and an opportunity for safety. It really is a wonderful company to donate to. More information can be found at Genesis Women’s Shelter website. If you missed this event, we hope to see you at the next one.
