#Dayton PUSH Charity Fashion Show/Auction March 5th

Hi everyone!

A co-worker/friend of mine informed me that she is helping a group called PUSH in the Dayton area put together a charity Fashion Show/Auction for March 5th called Runway the Right Way. I thought I would let you know about this event for several reasons:
  1. You might want to attend.
  2. You might want to donate to the auction.
About PUSH (From their website)
"PUSH (Professionals United for Sexual Health) is a group of Planned Parenthood Advocates who demonstrate their interest and commitment for the organization in unique and exciting ways.
Made up of women and men from the Miami Valley, PUSH members support the use of prevention to promote sexual health and prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unplanned pregnancies.

The PUSH group hosts fundraising events, social gatherings and educational programs throughout the year.  They first got involved when Planned Parenthood’s ability to provide free condoms was threatened after a loss of grant funding.  The PUSH group pulled together and raised enough money to “save the condoms,” insuring that condoms will be available from Planned Parenthood free of cost for the rest of the year.

PUSH is committed to making sure individuals in the Miami Valley have access to the information and healthcare they need to stay safe and healthy."
Details About Attending
"Runway the Right Way is scheduled for Saturday March 5th at Coco's in downtown Dayton, and will run from 12-3pm. Tickets will be $25 each and will include lunch (heavy apps), a complementary glass of champagne, access to the $5 Martini bar, and a limited seat at an incredible fashion event!"
Details About Donating
Runway the Right Way is looking for people to donate new or gently used high end fashion clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, etc.  for the auction and the runway. Aside from the catwalk items, there will be items that the attendees can bid on (gift baskets, etc). These can be related, like makeup for example.

If you would like to donate, or know of a company interested in donating, contributing, advertising, with this event, please contact me at prettyindayton at gmail dot com and I will put you in touch with event coordinators.

Already I'm asking the (very few) contacts I have if they would be interested in donating. I know some of my readers have a much larger contact list so therefore I am calling upon you to help.

Thank you!
