The female models wore various designer dresses supplied by the generous people of Rent The Runway that ranged from Hervé Léger to Versace. All of the participants looked stunning and were cheered on loudly by family, friends and classmates.
But let’s not forget what the entire evening was about. Raising money for the Embrace Kids Foundation was the #1 goal for everyone involved. On top of that was giving all of the kids attending from the foundation an incredible evening to remember. Walking up and down the runway was clearly something they thoroughly enjoyed as many of the kids continued to do it over and over again…even when the show was over. Many of the kids even had their own formal wear for that portion of the show. Being cheered on by the crowd brought some incredibly touching smiles to their faces and memories they, as well as their sorority and fraternity sisters and brothers, will have forever.
The night wound down with some great prizes donated by sponsors from all over the area and the kids themselves had the honor of picking the winning tickets. In total 52 prizes were awarded as well as a 50-50.
It was a great night of modeling, charity and community support that CCG Models is proud to have been able to be a part of. Phi Sigma Sigma did an excellent job on their 3rd annual fashion show. It is clear that it will continue to be a successful project uniting the campus community behind an incredibly noble cause.
Sadly, it was the final year for the founder and director of the show, Samantha. We wish to congratulate her on this amazing event that she created. As she hands over the reins to a successor, it is great to know that she created such a well-oiled machine which will be able to live on and continue to touch the hearts of those who participate for years to come.
