When has society valued men's fashion over women's in all its manrific glory? The Galleria's Men of Style Shopping Night returns Wednesday, bringing ten of the county's most prominent men to the runway dressed in stylish garb for a strut on the catwalk. These manly participants each represent a charitable organization or nonprofit group.

The audience is invited to cheer as manhood goes on parade. WPLG news anchor Jason Martinez will host the evening from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday at the Galleria of Fort Lauderdale, located at 2414 E.
