FASHION SHOW SALUTES YOUTH VOLUNTEERS FOR EXCEPTIONAL COMMUNITY SERVICE
More than 30 high school girls and boys from National Charity League and
Young Men’s Service League to be feted for community service in special runway show
WHAT: More than 30 teen girls and boys from area high schools will be feted for their community service by participating in a special runway show at Fashion Show wearing fashions by Dillard’s. The teens, along with their mothers, are members of the National Charity League and Young Men’s Service League (YMSL) Las Vegas Chapters and have collectively performed thousands of hours of community service at dozens of non-profit organizations in our community. NCL’s mission is to promote volunteerism, cultivate leadership and provide an opportunity for mothers and teen daughters, to forge a bond through service. YMSL, established in Texas, encourages young men and their mothers to improve their relationship by pursuing philanthropic opportunities in their community.
The show is free to the public with special reserved seating for NCL and YMSL members. The runway show and video are underwritten by Fashion Show and Faiss Foley Warren Public Relations to showcase the good works of outstanding teens in our community.
According to James Heilmann, senior general manager, Fashion Show, the opportunity to participate in a professional runway show is a fun perk for great kids who are doing meaningful things in our community. “We are delighted to honor this group of outstanding teens who, through their many hours of service, are making a difference in Las Vegas,” he said.
