Lehigh Acres Citizen

Riddim Runway will be held on Saturday, September 17, during Music Walk at the Sidney & Berne Davis Arts Center. The Art Center is located at 2301 First Street in the River District, downtown Fort Myers. Now in its fourth year, Riddim Runway is an annual reggae concert and fashion extravaganza, showcasing the best in Caribbean music and fashion while helping local charities. This year's beneficiaries are the C.C.M.I Soup Kitchen and Sidney & Berne Davis Arts Center.

Just added to this year's line up is none other than international reggae superstar Wayne Wonder! The sensual, honeyed vocals of Wayne Wonder have made him a consistent hit maker since the late '80s. In 2002, Wayne earned the first No.1 hit of his career pledging a lifetime of devotion on the sweetly romantic hit "No Letting Go." Now on tour with Beres Hammond, he will be doing his part to help our Southwest Florida community. Also joining him on stage is Ky-Enie, fresh from his six-month long promotional tour in Europe, as well as Kehv, Keisha Martin, Juliette Mills and Glenn Blakk. The fashion show will showcase designs by R. Milton, Mystic Creationz, Voluptuous You and many more.

Brought to you by King Leo Promotions, in association with Zep Construction, Riddim Runway starts at 7 p.m. and is guaranteed to entertain you with the best of the best of Caribbean culture. Other sponsors of this prestigious show are Fox Fuse, Old Navy, Ontonio Designs, Indulgence Salon, Spazz LLC and Urbanconnect Multimedia.

This year, admission to the concert is free with two cans of food to donate to C.C.M.I Soup Kitchen.
