Insurance Industry “Top Models” Take the Runway for Charity

October 24, 2008

Insurance industry leaders strutted down the catwalk modeling fashions from noted local designers in the Honolulu Association of Insurance Professionals’ (HAIP) Insurance Fest “Fashion Show.”

This second annual fundraising event was held to support the association’s annual Safety Essay Competition, which is currently in its evaluation phase. Public high school students compose stories which illustrate the dangers of substance abuse and/or reckless driving to raise awareness about these important issues while competing for cash awards.

“The HAIP is actively involved in the community and promoting education programs,” said Leila Tamashiro, HAIP president. “This was a great opportunity to raise funds for these programs while showcasing local designers with individuals from our corporate partner companies in a relaxed and fun environment.”

The runway show featured top local insurance executives modeling collections from Hawaii designers.

The Honolulu Association of Insurance Professionals is the local chapter of the National Association of Insurance Women (NAIW). For more information, visit
