Local fashion show raises funds for families in need

 

The Pearce Family Foundation hosted its third annual Runway of Home Fashion Show, raising over $24,000 in May.

Hosted at Views Restaurant, located inside OdySea in the Desert in Scottsdale, the fashion show sold-out with over 175 guests.

The evening raised a total of $24,575, which will allow the Pearce Family Foundation to continue assisting families who have a child suffering from a chronic or life threatening illness to pay for bills at home.

The Runway of Hope event started with a dolphin performance and ended with a special guest rap performance by TrapHouse, written by Isaiah Acosta, a recipient of the foundation’s grant program.

Channel 12 news anchor, Vanessa Ramierz and supporter of the foundation, Katie Merideth, hosted the event and introduced the nine lines featured in the show.
