Fresh Start Seeking Community Designers for 8th Annual Project Funway Benefit
Want to give clothing a repurpose? Community members are invited to participate in this unique event. 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.
Boutiques are invited to participate as sponsors, and will have the opportunity to showcase an outfit from their shop at the beginning of the runway show. Sponsors also will have a chance to be recognized during the event, in print and social media. Sponsorship levels range from $250 to $5,000.
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, October 13 at the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel. Doors open at 6:30pm. 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 self-sufficiency.
