The Make-A-Wish Foundation hosted its Black Tie & Tennies Gala on Aug. 13th at the Hyatt Regency Guam. Funds raised from the fundraising event are to be used to grant life-changing wishes to a child with a critical illness. Last year, the theme for the event was the Roaring ‘20s. This year, the crowd was invited to move seven decades ahead to celebrate the 1990s.
Brian Borja, brand manager, enterprise marketing, Docomo Pacific, definitely turned some heads with his vibrant jacket. “I wanted to show a little bit of hip hop, a little bit of royalty and a little bit of cool vibes. That’s why I went colorful with the fur and all black inside with silver shoes,” he said.
