WELCOME PERRY ELLIS INTERNATIONAL
WALK MIAMI RED RIBBON PARTNER
(1940 – 1986)
is regarded as one of the most outstanding and
influential designers of American sportswear.
During the 1970s and 1980s, Perry Ellis became known for his
non-traditional, modern classics, and was lauded for consistently
creating innovative fashion with "a twist". The Perry Ellis brand
became synonymous with sophisticated, preppy style. During his fashion
career, Perry Ellis won eight Coty Awards between 1979 and 1984, won
the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Fashion Award in
1981 and also served as president of the CFDA.
At a time when fashion designers were becoming glamorous celebrities,
Perry Ellis remained somewhat of an enigma. He was startlingly
handsome, yet dressed in an anti-fashion uniform consisting of khaki
pants, a dress shirt with the cuffs rolled up, and Topsider shoes left
over from his college fraternity days. Famously shy, he exuded
charisma. Although heralded as an overnight sensation, he had
definitely paid his dues on the way up. A household name, he kept his
personal life private. One minute he was at the top of his game, or so
it seemed, and next came the shocking news of his death from AIDS on
May 30, 1986.
A gaunt Perry unveiled
his latest line. People who
attended the show, aware of Perry's health problems, knew it would be
his last. When the show ended, Perry, too weak for the traditional walk
down the fashion runway, appeared briefly in the doorway of the
showroom where he received a standing ovation. A few hours later, Perry
collapsed and was rushed to a hospital where he slipped into a coma.
Two weeks later, on May 30, 1986, Perry Ellis died at age 46.
In April 1999, Miami-based Supreme International acquired Perry Ellis.
Supreme changed its name to Perry Ellis International and its stock
symbol to PERY.
Looking to the future, Perry Ellis International is positioned to
respond to the
ever-changing retail climate; its proactive approach propels it to new
heights in consumer recognition, revenues and profits. For more

WELCOME 82GO WATER
OFFICIAL WATER SPONSOR OF AIDS WALK MIAMI
Miami would like to take this opportunity to welcome our 24th Annual
AIDS Walk Miami Water Sponsor - 82Go Water
for their generous
support and donation for this years' fundraiser.
82Go Water (pronounced “Eight To Go”) is a pouch or “bod” as they call
it, that is filled with eight ounces of water using a reverse osmosis
method of purifying, leaving the water with a clean, pure taste. While
on the surface eight ounces of water in a pouch might not sound like
something very exciting, this product’s extremely innovative approach
to a category that has been beaten up over environmental issues is
huge. The same amount of plastic used to make a single cap for a bottle
of water is equal to one 82Go bod.
In addition, the product offers users the ability to have a disposable
water source that can be opened with one hand (you open 82Go by using
your teeth on one of the corners) and takes up almost no space after
consumption. Both of these things are key for users who are on the go.
like participants of the Walk for example. And, unlike many other
packaging innovations that we see, this one both tackles the problem
and the use of it is immediately obvious and intuitive.
82Go has a visual appearance that’s technical and minimalist, but still
approachable and fun. Overall, 82Go is one of those extremely rare
products that takes something that’s ubiquitous and mundane (a bottle
of water) and turns it into something that’s extremely innovative and
potentially game changing.
Look for 82Go Water coming to a retail location near you. For more

conservatism, click here
