Chic Children for a Cause — April 2015 (Fashion Show)

On Sunday, April 12, 2015, we hosted our fourth annual Children’s Fashion Show. Our event featured both boys and girls and this gives us the opportunity to have in attendance mothers and fathers as well as extended family members. The spotlight of the afternoon is a kids’ project runway fashion show. In addition, we hosted Candied Confections, with enough delights for both children and adults, and a raffle that was designed specifically with kids in mind. The location was at the Mercedes-Benz Dealership, Sugar Land, Texas.

The show included highlights of each child’s accomplishments, encouraging them in a continuing path of achievement, and building their confidence on stage and in front of audiences. Just knowing how special they are, it was their day to shine and be “Chic Children for a Cause”.
