Student fashion show benefits homeless

Nov. 25, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Western Michigan University's student-run fashion show is Friday and Saturday, Dec. 4-5, with proceeds benefitting the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission, an organization that serves local homeless or abused men, women and children in Kalamazoo County.

The event, "MODA Glamour," includes 30 student designers and 48 volunteer student models from WMU's Merchandising Opportunities Design Association. Shows both nights will begin at 8 p.m. in the Bernhard Center Ballroom, with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. for VIP ticket holders.

"This fall, we have chosen to give back to the local community by donating to the Kalamazoo Gospel Mission," says MODA President Deanna Ansara. "It's important to our organization to support those less fortunate, especially during the holiday season."

The semiannual fashion show is sponsored by Blue Granite, a Kalamazoo-based business intelligence company. Additionally, hairstylists from Modern 3 Salon and Spa of Kalamazoo will donate their services for both shows.

Tickets are $5 for students, $8 for general admission, and $25 for VIP. Tickets for VIP seats are not available at the door and must be purchased in advance.
