"Triad Goodwill’s 7th annual Rock the Runway fashion fundraiser is scheduled for Fri., Feb. 26, 2016 from 5:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. at the Empire Room, 203 South Elm Street, Greensboro, NC 27401. Tickets are on sale now via the website goodwillrocktherunway.org with limited seating available. Prices are $50 for Standard seats, $60 for Premium (row 2 & 3), $100 for VIP (row 1), and $500 for Fashionista Tables of 4. This event sells-out well in advance, so the public is encouraged to purchase their tickets now.
Triad Goodwill is also accepting applications from student, novice and professional designers to be one of the seven featured in Rock the Runway. The application can be downloaded at goodwillrocktherunway.org/about-the-event/2016-designer-application/and is due by midnight on Friday, November 20, 2015. These artists will break conventional molds of style as they create one-of-a-kind ensembles from reconstructed clothing donated to Triad Goodwill stores. This premier fashion show will feature each designer’s collection of seven outfits.
In addition to fashion, Rock the Runway includes a silent auction, live fashion photo shoot for guests, an after party, and Triad Goodwill’s pop-up shop, Willow’s Boutique, curating the crème de la crème from their stores. Fashion-forward attendees will be considered for the “Best Dressed Guest” award.
All proceeds benefit Triad Goodwill’s mission of providing free career development assistance for the un- and underemployed in our community. Follow Triad Goodwill on Facebook.com/TriadGoodwill (subscribe to Events), @TriadGoodwill, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn. We Put People To Work!
