PATH Beyond Shelter and Action Against Hunger were chosen to benefit from the high school fashion show fundraiser.
Fashion Club President Patricia Reyes just raised $2K for charity through her fashion show at Holy Family High School College Preparatory in Glendale, California.
I have participated in our annual fashion show in the previous years and I thought that being in charge of one would be an amazing experience—and indeed it was. It was a full house and the event raised more than $2000. I reached my fundraising goals!
I worked with my Fashion Club officers to choose the charities to which we wanted to donate. PATH Beyond Shelter focuses on ending homelessness, and Action Against Hunger helps with access to safe water and food for malnourished children and communities. My club is truly against starvation in this world.
I attribute the success of our show to the fashion interests, talent, and effort that the stylists of Holy Family voluntarily offered. Held at the Holy Family grade school auditorium, we had around 50-60 models.
Students created their own lines and volunteered to become stylists. Some actually made clothing on their own time, while others styled clothing of their own.
The theme was GLO. We think of “GLO” as a form of growing up and being at our shining moments. As it is our senior year, I saw the word GLO relevant to the beginning of 2016 and how this year will define our shining moments.
Planning the whole event was very stressful but I wouldn’t mind doing it all over again. That night was definitely one for the books. I learned that giving up time to plan an event can result in great things. The best part of the fashion show was not only owning the runway for a short while, but most importantly having fun with my club officers and members.
Being part of Fashion Club is fun because we get to discuss modern trends and combining ideas to plan workshops we can do as a club.
