Last Saturday, the KLEIDER MACHEN LEUTE campaign once again reached its annual climax: the 5th Charity Gala took place at the Hotel Kempinski Gravenbruch in front of 300 enthusiastic guests. They experienced a glittering gala night with many dazzling highlights in a varied programme, which was once again convincingly put together by the organisers Stephan Görner and Sven Müller. One of these highlights was the VIP fashion show. Prominent personalities such as handball legend Heiner Brand, boxing champ Sven Ottke, CDU politician Philipp Amthor, top model Marcus Schenkenberg and author and presenter Laura Karasek appeared on the catwalk in tailored suits by Stephan Görner - and all for a good cause.
The handsome sum of 35,000 euros was raised through donations to the LEBERECHT Foundation, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year and works to help needy children and their families. The proceeds from the gala will go to the Amerkane family from Frankfurt, who are caring for two children with a very rare hereditary disease, childhood dementia, and urgently need support for this. Sufficient recognition was also given to the "everyday heroes". The head of the volunteer fire brigade, the professional driver, the butcher and a clown were in the focus. Professionals who don't usually wear double-breasted suits or costumes to their jobs, but without whom a Metropole wouldn't function, strolled the red carpet, the catwalk and were the secret stars of the evening.
Stephan Görner underlines the importance of his campaign: "Recognition, appreciation and respect for these professions and the people behind them are our message, because far too often the achievements that these people bring every day are not sufficiently appreciated." The monthly picture campaign and the annual gala are intended to change that, at least a little. And if the whole thing then also serves a good cause, there is really only to say: Bravo! Keep it up!
