Fresh Start Seeking Local Clothing Designers for 9th Annual Project Funway Benefit
Are you creative? Do you have what it takes to win? Community members are invited to participate in Project Funway, a unique fundraising event coming up this fall. The theme is transformation and designers repurpose thrift shop clothing to create a new, creative, original garment. All of the garments will be featured in a runway show during the event. A panel of judges, and event attendees, will select the winners of the competition. All ages are welcome to participate. See entry form and rules at FreshStartHome.org/events.
Businesses are also invited to participate as sponsors, and will be recognized during the event, in print and social media. Sponsorship levels range from $500 to $4,500.
In addition to the runway show, Project Funway will include a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres and desserts. The Daisy Thrift Shop will also have a booth. Event tickets are $40 each. VIP tickets are $60 each, and include a private reception and priority seating for the show. Project Funway will be on Friday, November 2 at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
All proceeds will benefit Fresh Start, a transitional shelter that empowers women who are homeless to change their lives by recognizing and utilizing their strengths to overcome barriers to economic stability.
