The Berthoud High School Student Leadership class will support those in need by offering a fashion show of winter formal wear on Wednesday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m. in the high school commons.
Proceeds will benefit House of Neighborly Service, a nonprofit agency providing emergency food, clothing and shelter assistance in Loveland and Berthoud.
“A group of us wanted to use our shared interest in fashion as a way to help the community,” said Maya Lindgren, a BHS junior who is chairing the fashion show committee. “The winter formal is coming up in early February. We thought we could play off that and create a fun fundraising event.”
Twenty student models will show off formal wear provided by area retailers such as Deb of Twin Peaks Mall, The Dress Barn of the Loveland Outlet Mall and David’s Bridal of Fort Collins. Francesca’s of Centerra is providing accessories. Local hair salons are donating styling services for the models.
The event is open to the public and ticket holders are eligible to receive door prized donated by local businesses. In addition to enjoying the fashion show, refreshments will also be available and BHS junior Max Kleber will be offering his own unique comedy routine during intermission.
Tickets are $3 and are available at the door.
