FYP Runway Show!

FYP Runway Show!

Join the Free to Be Youth Project for our fashion show fundraiser event on October 6 from 7-9 pm at The LGBTQ+ Community Center. Tickets are pay what you wish, starting at $5. This runway show will be featuring two local designers: Risen Division and Winkworth! Share a night of local inclusive fashion, music, and connections with our clients as they strut the runway. Highlights include our live DJ, a variety of foods & drinks, and a raffle to win a custom design experience by each designer! All proceeds go towards our Client Emergency Fund (CEF), a fund to provide clients with small-scale financial assistance to address short-term emergency problems and ensure they don’t become larger crises. Not only does this provide temporary relief, but it is essential to the process of dismantling cycles of youth homelessness and poverty. Can’t wait to see you (and your friends) there!
