Arkansas designer makes a big statement in the Big Apple

Arkansas designer makes a big statement in the Big Apple

Arkansas fashion designer, Rulli Torres, recently made a big statement during New York City Fashion Week by showcasing his designs and donating time for a special event called PLITZS NYC Fashion Show and Charity Fundraising Gala.  Funds were raised for YES!, a non-profit organization that was created to provide information, resources, and support for anyone that is affected by cancers of the liver.

Torres says of his participation,"I had a really close cousin and favorite uncle pass away from cancer in the last few years and I've always been interested in contributing to various causes.  I'm very honored to have been asked to participate in this event.  If in some small way it helps one cancer survivor feel beautiful then I'll be very happy."

The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED

The Argenta Film Series Presents Academy Award Winner UNDEFEATED, Febuary 21st, 7p.m., Argenta Community Theater with special guest Bill Courtney, coach of the Manassas Tigers football team.

Set against the backdrop of a high school football season, Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin’s documentary UNDEFEATED, winner of the Academy Award® for Best Documentary Feature, is an intimate chronicle of three underprivileged student-athletes from inner-city Memphis and the volunteer coach trying to help them beat the odds on and off the field.

Founded in 1899, Manassas High School in North Memphis has never seen its football team, the Tigers, win a playoff game. In recent decades, the last-place Tigers had gone so far as to sell its regular season games to rival schools looking to chalk up an easy win.
