Sisters On The Runway To Hold Inaugural Spring Fashion Show

Sisters On The Runway, the student organization raising awareness and advocating for domestic violence prevention, will hold its first annual Spring Fashion Show this Thursday. All proceeds will benefit the Centre County Women’s Resource Center in State College, which serves as a major partner with Sisters On The Runway.

Clothing donated from students and local designers will be showcased by Sisters On The Runway’s team of models. The atmosphere will be jubilant, and the show will benefit a worthy cause.

The show will also feature a number of opening acts performed by members of various Penn State student organizations. The performers will include dance soloist Cara Burke, Vole Dance Company, and independent singers Bryan Sharkey and Matt Fell.

The event will be sponsored by Johnson and Johnson, the State College Spikes, and Lion and Cub, among others. Clothing donations will be provided by Harper’s Shop For Men, Connections, Dwellings, Diamonds and Lace Bridal Boutique, and LRG Clothing.

Attendees are required to wear semi-formal attire, and the event runs from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Business Building’s Atrium. Tickets will will cost $4.99 to students who present a student ID and will be available in the HUB from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. leading up to the event. Tickets are limited, so be sure to secure one before supplies run out.

Sisters On The Runway hopes that it can spread its message of domestic violence prevention, while continuing to grow as an organization through events such as its Spring Fashion Show.
