717 Parking Enterprises Donates Valet Parking Services for Pediatric Cancer Foundation for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s Fashion Funds the Cure

Apr. 4, 2011 – Tampa, Florida – March 2011 – Seven One Seven Parking Enterprises is very proud to have recently been provided the opportunity to donate Valet Parking Services for the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. On March 10, 2011, the Pediatric Cancer Foundation held their Fashion Funds the Cure. To add to the experience, Valet Parking Services were required. Seven One Seven Parking Enterprises, which has a long history of supporting charity, was very excited to have been entrusted to provide these services.

Local celebrities escorted some of Tampa’s finest models in the eighth annual Bright House Networks Fashion Funds the Cure, presented by Mercedes-Benz, benefiting the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. From 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Neiman Marcus, International Plaza, closed for a private evening of shopping, dining and an exclusive fashion show premiering some of spring’s hottest styles.

Some of the girls featured throughout the fashion show modeled much more than clothing. Each of these special ladies has battled pediatric cancer – some are still undergoing treatments and some are no longer battling. Professional models also hit the runway wearing the latest fashions. Other local celebrities who participated are current and former players from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays, Tampa Bay Lightning and other former and current NFL players. Local restaurants including Seasons 52, Bern’s Steakhouse, The Melting Pot, and Oystercatchers will be serving hors d’oeuvres. Drinks will be provided by Clos du Bois, Pepin Distributing, Ultra Pure, Svedka and Constellation Wines.

“We do hundreds of events yearly, but the ones that I am most proud happen when such beneficial organizations like the Pediatric Cancer Foundation show trust in us to make sure their guests are taken care of,” remarked Lauren Ruiz the Event Parking Manager of Seven One Seven Parking Enterprises.
