This year's fashion show sports a green theme, featuring natural, organic clothing modeled by the MOMs themselves and even some NFL players. ION came highly recommended to the organization, being chosen over a number of  other eco-fashion companies in Florida to participate in this star-studded charity event. "They asked me if I would provide Green Fashion apparel and as a result I was able to also educate them on my philosophy on eco-friendly dyes and fair labor - 'Healthy-Wear for People Who Care'," said Linda.

The MOM Squad's schedule of events includes the "Go Green Experience" tree planting at Oak Grove Park on Saturday afternoon and the fashion show and charity auction which will be in conjunction with the Professional Sports Wives Association and Pro Athletes Council's charity gala event on Saturday night at the Hyatt Regency Miami.
