UD Sponsors Charity Fashion Show

Spread the love

The University of Dubuque’s Office of Multicultural Student Engagement and the Black Student Union will sponsor a Charity Fashion Show on Saturday, March 8, at 7:00 p.m.  The event will take place in Heritage Center’s Babka Black Box Theatre.
“The theme of this year’s show is Flavor of the Caribbean,” commented Mishereen Ellis, director of multicultural student engagement.  “From the moment you arrive you will feel as if you’re on a Caribbean island.  From the ambiance, music, and food, your experience is sure to make you feel, as we say in Jamaica, “Irie”.”
Proceeds from the event will go towards the UD student Service trip to Jamaica as well as Jamaica Jampact Inc., a non-profit organization that aims to influence and improve socio-economic conditions which affect Jamaica and the Jamaican Diaspora by (1) developing social welfare programs, with particular focus on educational initiatives targeting youth, (2) facilitating research, stimulating constructive dialogue, and raising public awareness on topical issues; and (3) providing opportunities and resources to grow and strengthen the network of young professionals, students, and friends of Jamaica.  The organization does this – and more – through their Adopt-A-School Program, Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), and Think Tank Program.  For more information on Jamaica Jampact Inc., please visit www.jampact.org .
Local vendors participating in this year’s show include, DBQ Fashions, Milroy’s Tuxedos, The Children’s Place, Maurices, and the UD Bookstore.
