Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey from The Real Housewives of Atlanta attended a charitable benefit called Bare Chests for Breast Cancer last night in Atlanta. Breast cancer survivor, Ebony Steele, co-host of the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, hosted the annual fundraising event, which was held at 595 North in downtown Atlanta. Proceeds from the event are donated to the Susan G. Komen Circle of Promise, where Ebony serves as a national ambassador.
Concerning her involvement with the event, host Ebony Steele said…
I created the Ebony’s Eye Candy event as a fun and entertaining way to bring young women together, highlighting awareness of social needs when I was on the air in Dallas and Birmingham. Those events were such a huge success, so I wanted to bring the acclaimed series to Atlanta!
Guests who arrived early were treated to the African Pride Gifting Suite, which included pampering services from manicurists and makeup artists; gifted items from fashion boutiques; courtesy hand, foot and back massages; complimentary champagne and hors d’oeuvres finished with sweet dessert treats. The all male runway show featured designs from Ken Barber Signature, Shaka King New York, Kickboard Kouture, DTLR, Lee Gregory and D&K Suit City.
Notable attendees of the event included Cynthia Bailey and Kandi Burress from The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Musiq Soulchild, comedian Rickey Smiley, Roger Bobb, Jamal Anderson and OJ Santiago (former Atlanta Falcons), Charlene Bastien (National Director-Strength of Nature), Freddy Cameron (Georgia Entertainment Association), Marvin Montgomery (Cosmopolitan Magazine’s Hottest Bachelor in GA) and a host of Atlanta influencers.
