’80s Supermodels Cheryl Tiegs & Kelly Emberg Plan Houston Visit For Fundraiser To Help The Homeless | Houston , Texas | Culture Map

Cheryl Tiegs | Supermodels of the 80's Luncheon 2012

From the covers of Vogue, Elle, Town & Country, Glamour and other magazines, a group of the world’s most photographed models will take the stage at River Oaks Country Club on April 25th for the I Am Waters Foundation inaugural fundraiser, “Supermodels of the ’80s.” It will offer a striking juxtaposition of high-style glamour and homeless realities.

Former international model and Houston resident Elena Davis, I Am Waters founder, is bringing together Cheryl Tiegs, Kelly Emberg, Kim Alexis, Tony Spinelli, Jack Scalia and others to join her in the effort to raise funds and awareness for the foundation that provides bottled water, displaying words of inspiration, to the homeless.

I Am Waters serves 15 homeless shelters in Houston, Austin and Fort Worth, delivering 300,000 bottles last year.

Despite the fact that she enjoys all the comforts of a rich life today and despite her successful 15-year modeling career with Ford, Davis has a special affinity for the homeless, having lived on the edge as a child. She was raised in poverty in a single-family home, one of four children, and dropped out of school in the eighth grade.

“I was not homeless but I was raised a couple of precarious steps above homeless,” she said. “So there are elements that I just feel very tied to with the homeless — the sense of not belonging, of transience, of deprivation.”
