Fashion show benefit to help literacy in war-torn Uganda

Mount Boucherie Secondary School Global Service program participants will host an Ethical Threads Fashion and Fine Arts Night.

The event takes place Feb. 21, starting at 7 p.m., in the school’s multi-purpose room. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The night will feature 20 models in recycled fashion accessorized by scarves and jewelry produced by students at Mount Boucherie.

All of the models’ clothing will be sold at the end of the evening.

Also available for purchase will be other donated clothing, Boojangles Jewelry, and Dreamweaver Scarves as well as silent art auction items.

Admission is by donation of spare change.

All proceeds will go to a literacy campaign spearheaded by Niteo Africa in Uganda, a country devastated by  the legacy of war and child soldiers.
