St. Pete Art and Fashion Week
St. Pete Art and Fashion Week runs September 16-21, featuring a series of art and runway fashion shows presented in St. Petersburg, Florida once a year in September. The weeklong charity event includes VIP parties, boutique events, a silent auction and art and runway shows. This year St. Pete Art and Fashion Week has chosen Morning Star School as their beneficiary.
Morning Star is a non-profit school serving students with a variety of learning challenges and related difficulties. Morning Star School provides Kindergarten through 10th grade students with a full-day, comprehensive curriculum in a structured small group setting.
The school is seeking contributions for a variety of items including funds to build portables for high school students in order to expand through the 12th grade.
St. Pete Art and Fashion Week will be assisting in fundraising through ticket sales, sponsorship, donations, auctions, and more. Any donation, large or small, is greatly appreciated.
Morning Star School’s wish list includes: building classrooms (portables) for the high school, 24 desks for new classrooms, 20 iPads, upgrading classroom computers, class sets of reading books for the library, expanding the basketball court and add a second basketball hoop, athletic equipment for PE classes and extended day program, and tuition assistance.
The “Fashion for Charity” event will take place at four different locations in downtown St. Petersburg including Jannus Landing’s Club Detroit, Suzette’s on Central and One Progress Plaza. Events include unique fashion and art experiences. Complimentary food and drinks will be served on Friday and Saturday, provided by the Avenue.
