Sometimes school isn’t only about hitting the books. At the Centre for Arts and Technology (CATO) in Kelowna, B.C., Events and Promotions Management students are putting their new skills into practice by joining forces with the local business community to bring together a fundraising event called A Fashionable Autumn.
This fall-themed fashion show is being produced as a collaborative effort, with various boutiques and some of CATO’s own graduating fashion students providing the looks for the runway. Local beauty school, Marvel College, has even volunteered to assist with hair and makeup services for the models.
This exciting event is set to take place tomorrow evening, Saturday, September 24, at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Complete with martinis, tapas, and a silent auction, students are hoping to raise valuable funds to help provide bursaries for future students.
By the time the lights are dimmed, and the stage is set for the show, students involved will not only have gained valuable event planning experience, but will also have had the opportunity to start making contacts within the Okanagan business community. Plus, attendees can scope out the latest fall fashions, and spend an evening helping out a good cause. Sounds like a great excuse for a night out to me!
