Accepting Applications for Girls 6-18 for Sheer Elegance Fashion Show | Due September 30

 

Mathews-Dickey Boys’ & Girls’ Club now accepting applications for girls to take part in a unique arts and team-building experience…

our Sheer Elegance No.28 runway fashion show.


The “Style Safari” will transport attendees on an adventure beyond their wildest dreams featuring “Project Runway” alumni, celebrity escorts, exciting door prizes, awesome entertainment and a chance for our young women to roar. It all takes place on Saturday, December 17  at a new location, the Regency Room at the Hyatt Regency by the Arch, 315 Chestnut St., St. Louis, MO 63102. That day it’s all about the girls, with up to 20 high-school aged young women recognized for their academic, extra-curricular and community service achievements and 20 elementary-to-middle school girls taking part in a special thematic presentation. Here is an overview of the two opportunities to participate:

TEEN HONOREES

This is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (a teen can only be honored in the show once). Honorees are young women ages 13 to 18 who have demonstrated a commitment to academics, community service and extra-curricular participation either at Mathews-Dickey, in their school/community or both. Honorees will learn a dance as a team-building exercise that they will perform on the day of the event. On December 17, they also will be escorted down the runway by community leaders, ranging from the mayor and county executive to the heads of cultural institutions, media personalities and CEOs. For this purpose, all the young women will receive a complimentary formal dress/shoes along with a dance costume. No prior involvement is required, but current and prior members are given preferred consideration. Honorees must be able to attend eight weeks of personal development and choreography training by Best Talent Center leading up to their finale dance and of course be available to attend the event itself on December 17. Participants in the event qualify for community service hours.
