Fashion show to raise money for low-income cancer patients

on Friday,February 04,2011 19:02


Many people attend fashion shows to keep up on the latest trends, but now the Concerned Citizens Association is giving individuals the opportunity to view clothes and support cancer patients.

Recently, the group announced that it will holding a fashion show in Jacksonville, North Carolina, to raise money for people with cancer. This is the fourth time that the "A Fashion Affair" event will be held, according to Eastern North Carolina Today. Tickets for the show will cost $15 and go to terminally-ill patients, according to association founder Doreatha Blount White.

"We want to keep this thing going, because each year it gets better and better," White told the news source. "The money we raise will be used to help those cancer patients that don’t have insurance and have to pay cash and just don’t have it."

In addition to the fashion show, ticket holders can attend a complimentary breakfast. Models on the runway will showcase pieces from Belk's, Sears, Finders Keepers and City Trends.

Individuals who attend the fashion show may be inspired to pursue careers in the industry. However, designers typically need an associate's or bachelor's degree to earn a high-wage job in fashion, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
