Zarwin Baum Partners with the DeMeco Ryans Foundation and Chef Chip Roman for ‘Fashion Kicks’ Benefitting the S. Weir Mitchell School

August 11, 2014

On Monday, August 11, 2014, at 5:30pm, Zarwin Baum DeVito Kaplan Schaer Toddy, P.C., and The Honigman Group join Jamila Ryans, wife of Philadelphia Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans, and Chef Chip Roman in hosting ‘Fashion Kicks,’ benefitting the S. Weir Mitchell School in Southwest Philadelphia, taking place at Roman’s newest restaurant, The Treemont (231 S. 15th St.).

Guests – joined by a host of Philadelphia Eagles player’s wives – will don their most fashionable kicks for an evening of delectable food and libations beginning with a cocktail reception at 5:30pm followed by a 50-seat, set two-course dinner with dessert and a wine pairing at 7pm. All proceeds from the evening will go towards the purchase of new sneakers and school supplies for the children of the S. Weir Mitchell School, recently adopted by Zarwin Baum. What’s more, guests attending ‘Fashion Kicks’ are encouraged to donate a new or gently used book, fit for children ages 5-12. Donated books will assist in kick starting the school’s library.

‘Fashion Kicks’ – a collaborative event between Zarwin Baum, the DeMeco Ryans Foundation (DRF) and the Roman Restaurant Group – helps the children of S. Weir Mitchell School put their best foot forward for the new school year with a new pair of school shoes. This event emphasizes the assertion by Zarwin Baum, DRF and Roman Restaurant Group that all children deserve to feel and look their best, enabling them to perform with confidence and focus in school.

“Zarwin Baum is thrilled to partner with the DeMeco Ryans Foundation and Chef Chip Roman for the ‘Fashion Kicks’ event benefitting the S. Weir Mitchell School,” says Zarwin Baum managing shareholder Mitchell Kaplan. “This event comes at a time when Philadelphia’s public schools and the children served by them are in great need of support from organizations and individuals in the Philadelphia community.”

Earlier this year, after conversations with Philadelphia School District Superintendent William Hite, Zarwin Baum Of-Counsel Alan E. Casnoff was introduced to the S. Weir Mitchell School, where he found a school with a principal and staff fully committed to the success of the students, but in great need of resources and tools. Zarwin Baum adopted the school and pledged an ongoing commitment to provide the school and its young people with the tools necessary for success including technology, furniture, and a host of school supplies. Zarwin Baum’s efforts for the S. Weir Mitchell School are in line with the call made by the Philadelphia Bar Association earlier this year to support our area’s public schools and find ways to financially support them.

Founded in 2007 by DeMeco Ryans, DRF seeks to provide youth with innovative programs that provide access to educational, recreational, and healthy living initiatives designed to positively aid their development.

The Treemont is the newest edition to Chef Chip Roman and the Roman Restaurant Group’s impressive collection of restaurants that include Tradestone Cafe and Confections, Mica, Blackfish and Ela. ‘Fashion Kicks’ will be the first event held at The Treemont, since its opening in April.

Tickets for the ‘Fashion Kicks’ event can be purchased for $75, which includes the cocktail reception and seated dinner, or $10 for just the cocktail reception. Space is limited.  Tickets can be purchased online at: EventBrite
