HUCM Cultural Affair & African Heritage Festival

So.....Doyin called us to tell us about a fundraising event that organized by the Howard University College of Medecine (HUCM) International Medicine Interest Group.

The show was held on Feb 28th 2008, entitled A "Cultural Affair".

The show took place in what the medicne students call the RED Room. Full of musical peformances, fashion, dancing and a documentary on the University's medical missions; it was an event full of entrigue.

Côté Minou was happy to be part of this event which. The event helped raise a lot of money for the students in the school of medecine to be able to provide some neccesitiesities for the many people who are sick oversees.

Our showcase featured a combination of daytime and ballroom dresses. Music was awesome and the models did a great job!
