TAMPA, Fla. — Academy Prep has announced that WWE Superstars, Divas and NXT Superstars will participate in “A Night of Fashion,” Thursday at 7 p.m. ET at the Revealing Truth Ministries in Tampa. All proceeds from the event will benefit the student scholarship fund and Embracing Legacy’s youth programs.

Superstars and Divas confirmed to attend include Titus O’Neil, a mentor and volunteer instructor at the school; his Prime Time Players partner, Darren Young; Divas Champion AJ Lee; Aksana; Wade Barrett; Antonio Cesaro; Alicia Fox; Justin Gabriel; Vickie Guerrero; Drew McIntyre; Naomi; Natalya; Sheamus; Jimmy Uso; Paige and Summer Rae.

“I am grateful that so many of my fellow WWE Superstars and Divas will be in attendance for this event to benefit Academy Prep,” O’Neil said. “This is a significant fundraiser for the school, and an investment in developing at-risk youth to become future leaders in our community.”

The fashion show will feature clothing inspired by the 1930s and ’40s with casual, semi-formal and formal wear created by Sandra Grey Originals, WWE’s costume designer, and Greiner’s Fine Men’s clothing. The designs will range from beachwear to daily wear, suits to formal gowns.

“A WWE fashion show is a unique and fascinating way for a special community partner to help fund our mission,” Head of School of Academy Prep Center of Tampa Lincoln Tamayo said.

General admission to the event is $50. VIP tickets, on sale for $100, include a separate VIP entrance and red carpet experience, hors d’oeuvres and refreshments at a pre-show VIP event, celebrity and student seat escorts, elevated (stage level) premier seating during the fashion show, and a post-show meet and greet event with the Superstars and Divas, where they will have the opportunity to purchase photos of their favorite stars and get autographs.

Tickets may also be purchased individually, and corporate “block” seating is available. Corporate blocks allow your company the opportunity to buy a block of seats at a discounted rate of $85 for VIP seating and $45 for general admission tickets. A minimum of 10 tickets must be purchased.
