According to The Chronicle of Philanthropy dated October, 2012, “More than half of American teenagers and young adults volunteered last year…”
That’s quite a staggering show of support for good causes of all kinds.
A group of high school students in Greenwich will continue their volunteer tradition in the hopes of helping a cause near and dear to so many of us. The Junior Committee for the Breast Cancer Alliance will host its 9th Annual Junior Fashion Show at Richards on Sunday, April 28th at 10:30am with all proceeds benefiting the education and outreach programs funded by the Alliance.
The students will be choosing their own teen-friendly styles and accessories from the store’s collection of fashion forward designers such as Michael Kors, J. Brand, Rag and Bone, Cucinelli, J. Mendel and Jason Wu…to name a few. The volunteer list continues with an unbeatably delicious breakfast generously donated by Libby Cooke Catering while hair and makeup services will be provided gratis from Christopher Nolan Salon and Spa
The Junior Committee is comprised of student volunteers from Greenwich High, Greenwich Academy, Stanwich School, Brunswick School and King Lowe Heywood School in Stamford. Co-chair Dee Mayberry commented, “It’s a wonderful opportunity for our teens to come together, collaborate and support a universal health cause right here in our own community. And it is especially encouraging to see the community come out and support these efforts.” Dee, along with her fellow chairs, Julia Dunn and Paige Montinaro, as well as all the committee students involved with this show, should be proud of their passionate resolution to battle breast cancer.
Tickets are $30 per student, $75 per adult. Patron tickets begin at $100, with a $200 and $500 option as well.
