On May 7, the Global Down Syndrome Foundation hosted its “Be Beautiful Be Yourself” gala at the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel in the District. At the event, a bevy of stars escorted 18 models with Down syndrome on the runway.
British singer Leona Lewis, CNN’s Kyra Phillips, Fox News’ John Roberts and members of Congress were among the event’s attendees.
During the event, the foundation honored Sen. Jerry Moran and Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton with the Quincy Jones Exceptional Advocacy Award for their support of those with Down syndrome.
