Fresh Start is looking for local clothing designers and boutiques to get involved in their 5th annual Project Funway benefit on November 14th. The theme is transformation and all community designers are invited to enter the competition and repurpose thrift shop clothing to create a new, creative and original garment. All of the garments will be featured in a runway show during the event, and a panel of judges and event attendees will select a winner.
See entry form and rules: http://freshstarthome.org/events.
Boutiques are invited to participate as sponsors, and will have the opportunity to informally model clothing from their shops at the event. Sponsors also will be recognized during the event and in print and social media. Sponsorship levels range from $200 to $5,000.
Project Funway will also include a silent auction, hors d’oeuvres and desserts. Event tickets are $35 each. VIP packages are available for $200, and include four tickets, preferred seating and gift items. To request tickets, enter as a designer, become a sponsor, or for more information, please call (402) 475-7777.
All proceeds will benefit Fresh Start (www.FreshStartHome.org), a transitional shelter that empowers homeless women to change their lives by recognizing and utilizing their strengths to overcome barriers to self-sufficiency.
