Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

WA Aids Coun­cil fundraiser Styleaid has at­tracted the likes of Gemma Ward, Ni­cole Trun­fio, Amy Fin­layson, Tom Bull and Emma Booth on to its cat­walk over the past 20 years.

But sup­port­ers, spon­sors and or­gan­is­ers of the event know that peo­ple like Mark Reid, Aly May and An­nette Hasluck, who are in­au­gu­ral com­mit­tee mem­bers, are the real stars.

The trio was touched when they were re­ferred to as the “icons” at the launch of the 20th and fi­nal Styleaid Icon at La Vie cham­pagne lounge at Crown Perth re­cently.

Over its history, the event has raised more than $1.5 mil­lion, hosted 10,790 guests, in­volved 1450 mod­els and been co­or­di­nated by 4690 vol­un­teers.

This year’s event is to be held on Fri­day, Au­gust 4.
