The Make-A-Wish Winter Fashion Show infront of the Student Union at the VV campus.
On Monday evening, EPCC Campus Life teamed up with Make-A-Wish Foundation to host a fundraiser winter fashion show.
Kids from Make-A-Wish and EPCC students participated as models, showing off clothing from American Eagle Outfitters, Old Navy, Macy’s and Rue 21.
Campus Life has hosted the fashion show for three years, but this was the first time they teamed up with the organization, resulting in the biggest night they’ve had.
“It was amazing.
It’s really great to hear people from outside of EPCC say that it didn’t even look like community college and especially because of Make-A-Wish, and seeing the whole set and seeing these kids walk down the runway,” said Raul Hernandez, event coordinator and Campus Life representative for the Rio Grande campus.
“Tonight we made almost $3,000, so that’s going to make a difference and we’re going to go ahead and give $3,000 to these Make-A-Wish kids.”
There was a full house for the event titled Make-A-Wish Winter Fashion Show.
“Tonight was a huge success, not only because of the revenue that we generated, but also because it’s so important for us that our families feel loved and support by the community,” said Natalie Eckberg, development officer at Make-A-Wish North Texas.
“The highlight of this was definitely seeing the Wish kids walk down the runway.
Seeing the kids be so confident and so excited to participate was amazing.”
