A fashion show like no other – that is the promise of the Light of Hope Runway of Hope, “A Journey to Restoration,” in Claremore October 26.
All the fashions will be from Claremore boutiques.
Some of the models are people in recovery from addiction, who regularly attend group meetings at Light of Hope.
Others are the very people who arrested and sentenced those former addicts to jail time for drug use.
They are sharing the stage for one simple reason, Light of Hope Founder Layla Freeman said, “We want to portray to our community the heart of what we do. We walk along side people and we rebuild life together. That takes the entire community.”
The Route 66, Americana theme will be accented by antique cars and a classic soda fountain.
The fashion show will take place Saturday, Oct. 26 at the Claremore Conference Center form 6 to 9 p.m. Guests can also enjoy a plated dinner and coffee bar.
Seats are limited to the first 240 guests. Tables, swag and special access are available at a variety of sponsorship levels. Otherwise tickets are $75 per person, available now through a link on the Facebook event page. All proceeds benefit Light of Hope’s drug prevention education program.
