Models included Lil C, Jaden, Cyia, and Carter, the children of New York Yankee’s CC Sabathia and wife Amber, Amar’e Jr.; Assata and Ar’e Stoudemire, the children of New York Knick’s Amare Stoudemire and wife Alexis; Jalen Jeter-Martin, son of Sharlee Jeter and nephew of New York Yankee’s Derek Jeter; Kiyan Anthony, son of Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Anthony; Demi Smith, daughter of J.R. Smith; Kennedy Cruz, daughter of Victor Cruz and fiance Elaina Watley; and son of Angie Martinez, Niko Ruffin.
Proceeds from the event supported Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation. Turn 2’s mission is “to create and support signature programs and activities that motivate young people to turn away from drugs and alcohol and “Turn 2” healthy lifestyles” . We loved seeing children grace the runway and many of our favorite athletes supporting a good cause.
